Fun with the Family and ABC tag

Fun with the Family....
What a relaxing day yesterday was!!!
*I spent time with Bug going through his summer clothes and realizing,,,this boy better stop growing!!!
*spent time with the girls and their lack of summer clothes.
*fixed something yummy for lunch.
*admired gorgeous chalk art that was done.
(didn't get a picture of the finished masterpieces before it rained!!!Darn!!!)
*Played this game.....eight hundred and fifty-one times!!! I only won once...SAD!!!
*rocked Ashie
*cut Bug's hair
*bean bag war...this is daily...thanks once again, Michelle!
Nothing fancy...just relaxing, and hangin' out with my munchkins.
When Hunter Dan got home...we had to run a quick errand. Afterwords we went to the video store and rented these...

We then took the kids to the grocery store to have $4.00 dinner night. My brother and his family started this, and we have done it a couple times too...not very often though!!!.....each family member gets four dollars to buy what they want for dinner...or in our case "our family movie night"meal...can I just say... we spent over an hour in that store!! Too funny watching the kids figure out the perfect dinner!note...this is fun...not necessarily healthy!!:-)

Hunter Dan...popcorn chicken(from the deli), bag of pork rinds(gross)
Me...(sorry folks no diet tonight)...popcorn chicken, fuze peach/mango drink, almond poppyseed piece of cake.
Bug...2 Jones sodas(cream soda), lunchable, flaming hot cheetos, ice cream bars
Lexlee...lunchable, countrytime strawberry lemonade, 2 kiwis, sweet tarts, ice cream bar
Jibbity...popcorn chicken, bug juice, smarties sucker, 2 strawberry juice pops
Ashie...she ate food from home

We then had a picnic in my bedroom, and watched our movies. Where the Red Fern Grows....not the original, but so cute. I cried and cried, yes I am a baby!!!! I didn't cry for the dogs dying, but for how heart-broken "Billy" was.(ya just look at things differently when you are a mom) Freaky Friday...funny and the kids loved watching all the "oldness" from this one. They laughed really hard!

It was a FUN day...

Have a great weekend!

ScrappinAway said...

I think that was the best day I have ever heard of! I can't wait to do $4 dinner night with my little girl when she gets older! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

Lanie said...

I think it was a fabulous idea to spend the day with your children like that. I was thinking yesterday that I need to spend more one on one time with my girls.
Love the $4 dinner night. What a hoot to see what they picked. Cute!

April said...

I absolutely LOVE the idea of a $4 dinner clever and fun! My girls, even though they're 12 and 17, would LOVE that! We may have to give it a try very soon!

What a fun tag, too! Enjoy your weekend...hope you have great weather!

Krissy said...

That sounds like so much fun! Love the idea of $4 dinner night too! I have to admit though I've never seen where the Red Fern Grows!

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

What a perfect day! I have never heard of $4 dinner night. What a fun idea! And it is stuff like that your kids remember when they grow up.

Jenny-Jenny said...

Oh how I love days like that.

Our version of the game is called The Dinner Game. We have 7 people so we create 7 courses, ie. appetizer, side, main, beverage, dessert, side, appetizer. We put those on little papers and into a hat. Then 7 money amounts on little papers, 1.00, 1.50, 2.00, 2.50, 3.00, 3.50, 4.00 into a hat. Each person draws one from each hat. You now have your part of the meal and the amount of money you must spend. The person going the farthest over or under their money amount has to do the dishes. This is a total blast and usually a very unhealthy meal.
Long comment... fun game!
