Family fun night is a treasure. We start the night off with Italian fondue & warm bread for dipping. I know that they enjoy how it taste, but there is something exciting about eating dinner with long forks. As the night of movie watching and game playing progresses, the chocolate fondue that is being kept warm by a little flickering flame slowly entices little ones to a helping of fresh fruit.
Tonight offered a movie, a game, an intermission fort & last minute game of musical chairs. As the evening comes to a close, the patter of feet racing up the stairs and the giggles that fill the home make it all worth it.

I love how this boy of mine can go from playing soccer, trains, dinosaur stomping, rough housing and growling, to a super host at the drop of a hat. When he "hosts" he is very particular about what is being served & how it is presented. Starting with a picnic blanket in the sun, a very precise request for 6 peanut butter Nutella, star shaped sandwiches and "tea" (juice) in the teapot quickly follows. As perfect as he requires everything to be, it cracks me up that he could care less about being pantless.

I think I have mentioned before that we really enjoy having music fill our home. This year brought two new welcome additions. A much awaited drum set and new kind of guitar that allows for an instant jam session.
It's been a blast so far and I can't wait to see what they come up with next.
