Family Night Friday- October Week 2

This week Family Night was a go! We got boo'd Wednesday night so that meant that this week we were going to boo our neighbors. The kids were so excited! Brianna got to choose someone and then Jonah got to choose someone. We started the evening with dinner at one of our favorite places:

After chicken nuggets, a deluxe chicken sandwich and waffle fries (and a little time in the play place, I mean come on, why shouldn't they get to run wild for a while?!?!) we headed off to Target to hit the Dollar Spot. I love the Dollar Spot at Target. We came away with adorable Halloween buckets and lots of fun goodies to put inside them (Halloween socks, glow in the dark wands, axes and necklaces, window clings, etc) We also grabbed some break apart and bake cookies to add to our buckets. We headed to the checkout with buckets ready and families picked out to boo and headed home to bake our cookies.

After putting together our baskets together and baking cookies we headed out into the night to spread the Halloween love!

Let's go Boo!!!
I always love watching the kids do stuff like this. It's one of those things that I know they will remember and hopefully carry on with their children one day. Traditions, memories, that's what it's all about. Spending those times together that will build up relationships and show them that at the end of the day it all begins and ends with family. It was just buckets filled with $1 items, but to them it was the best day ever!

After boo'ing we came home to drink hot chocolate, eat cookies and watch Aladdin. (Wouldn't you know this was the one night Brianna could stay up late to watch the movie on Disney Channel since it's fall break and the "Halloween" movie was Aladdin..really!?!?!) I enjoyed listening to them giggle and singing the songs at the top of my lungs. It was a great night! And we enjoyed our time together.

What did you do this week to build up your family? Please share!

Thanks for your nice comment, I hope the cough and carry caddy comes in handy. I know we've already used our 3 times this fall! You have an adorable family, I love your Boo-ing tradition. That is something I will have to keep in mind for future use!
