Family Fall Festival
Wednesday, October 29, 2008

For our Family Night this week, we had a "Fall Festival." (Jonathan's idea. The pirate theme last week was his idea too. I told him I like this system; if he keeps delivering on the big idea I'll keep delivering on the specifics. We're a pretty good team that way.)

Jonathan and the kids cut out 'tickets', while Ryan made posters advertising all the Festival Activities.

For dinner, Frito Pie costs the kids 6 tickets each.

Then they handed over more tickets for Face Painting, The Bean Bag Toss, Arm Wrestling, and Bobbing for Apples.

Lastly we made caramel apples sprinkled with mini-chocolate chips and peanuts. Messy, gooey, fun, and yummy.

I'm really enjoying Tuesday Family nights! It's nice to be deliberate about enjoying each other.

Looks like a fun night! Thanks for the great ideas.
