Family Date Night!


I love to go on dates with my husband, however, I also love to have Family Date Night!  We try to do this at least once a month.  My kids will do or help with just about anything to earn this special night.

At the beginning of the week, I give each child an envelope. Then, they get to decorate and write their name on the envelope. This envelope is like a wallet. Throughout the week, I give my kids tickets each time they are helpful or do their chores.

Once Family Date Night arrives, they get to redeem their tickets for popcorn, drinks and movie treats. I soon learned what drinks and candy my kids would go for.

Before the movie starts, we have a “Make Your Own Pizza” bar.  We each like our pizza a different way, so we have a lot of fun making our pizzas just how we like them!

In addition to the “Make Your Own Pizza” station, we make donuts! For Christmas, we received an awesome donut maker. I have seen donut makers at Kohls, Target and Wal-Mart. You can create donuts in literally a matter of minutes!  After we make the donuts, we set up a station for frosting and decorating!

Once the food is created,  the kids buy their treats and then it is time for the movie!

All in all, this special date night costs around $10 and the memories last forever!

    We go ride our dirt bikes and quads together. We park on a hill side by side and watch the sunset together.
