Family Fun Night

James told the girls that one of our new things to do for 2008 was going to be having a Family Fun Night.   Every odd dated Friday is going to be our night.  No TV, no computer for anyone.  The girls will plan the meal and cook it for us.  Then we will have family devotions and play board games or something else the rest of the evening.  We are always together other nights too, but sometimes it seems like one of us is on the computer, one is doing something else and the girls are playing off by themselves.   I am excited that this will be one night when we are all five involved in the same thing.  And it's going to be nice not having to come up with another meal! 

Our first FFN was last Friday.  The girls decided to fix grilled cheese sandwiches and soups.   They did a great job and had lots of fun doing it.

When we were finished eating and cleaning up the kitchen, James did a devotion on sowing what you reap.  I'm not sure if they fully understood the concept, but they got that if you do bad things, you will have bad consequences.   And if we do things that God is proud of, we will have good consequences.

We played an alphabet game and bingo game that Lil got for Christmas from Mammaw.  The girls really had a great evening and so did Mom and Dad.  I cannot wait for the next one.
