In the beginning of November we did a fall family night. It was really a lot of fun! In the afternoon the boys and I went out in our neighborhood to look for leaves. There were actually a lot of them, and they had a lot of fun throwing them around.
When we got home, we made crowns out of our leaves to wear during dinner.
I made a REALLY yummy meal… not to toot my own horn or anything. But I just have to take a second and RAVE about the I Love Trader Joe’s Cookbook. It is by far, the best cookbook I’ve ever had! Everything I’ve made out of it is sooooo good, and so easy and fast, and usually pretty healthy. And, even if you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s, you can still cook the meals using stuff from the regular grocery store, because Trader Joe’s is a little pricey… especially compared to Winco. Anyway, I made a yummy turkey with green chili sauce, because the cookbook said it was a “warming autumn dinner.” See?
After dinner we played a game where we stood on a stool and had to make crayons “fall” into a cup. It was fun, mostly because the boys had an advantage and totally whooped our booties!
I love family night. I really, really do.
