Family Game Night Friday

We try and reserve Friday evenings just for our little family.  We usually make dinner, then pop in a movie or play games.  The holidays threw us off a little with all the happenings and get togethers, but we are recommitting to setting aside this special time just for us.

On the Menu:
Make your own pizza!  Since Casey and I are trying to eat healthier, we can make our pizzas with lower fat toppings without depriving the kids of their favorite: pepperoni.  I love artichoke hearts and roma tomatoes on mine.


Even though we are watching our calories, we're not skipping dessert.  Nope, not in this house!  I have a lot of Weight Watchers cookbooks and found a yummy, low fat recipe for chocolate fondue.  For dippers we'll have angel food cake and fresh fruit. 

The Games:


Trouble.  Oh, we love this game!  It's gets kinda competitive around here when we're playin'!  Abby always makes Dad be green since it's "the color of a booger" (her words!).  Yeah, it gets hardcore.


Operation.  Santa brought this game for Abby this past Christmas and it's been a big hit.  This is the version with the sound effects (which just happens to be the best part of the game according to my kiddos) which can get a little annoying after a while.  I had this game when I was a kid so it's fun to see my kids enjoying it now.  Lots of fun!

Time to get my game face on.  The competition looks fierce...

I sure do love Abby's game face.
I am scared to play against that
little doll. But her Nana would
do it if she was feeling tough.
Love you Abby and Wyatt. Love Nana
