WFMW- Family Fun Night

Every Friday at our house is Family Fun Night. The children know what to expect and look forward to it all week long.

The fun usually begins after dinner when everyone runs to get ready for bed, grabs their pillows and blankets and heads downstairs. We play games, read books, listen to a story on Cd, or just watch a movie. We snuggle and play and enjoy spending some fun, relaxing time together.

The fun is not over when the movie ends, it is just beginning. The best part of Family Fun Night is that we all sleep together. The children take turns sleeping next to mom and dad. Sometimes the children make little tents, but we always snuggle up and sleep together on Friday nights.


Making amazing memories by spending time with my family that Works For Me!

WARNING: Sleeping on the floor with no additional padding is not recommended for children over 25!

    We do this too! We love to all sleep in the living room together. We built a tent with blankets and slept in it one night. They loved that!

    Those nights are going to make great memories. I bet your kids will repeat FFN with their own kids!

    This is a great idea…but I refuse to sleep on the floor!! I sacrifice in other areas, though!

    That’s so sweet! A lot easier to all sleep on the floor than for everyone to pile on mom and dad’s bed! It’s so wonderful that your family is so close!

    Absolutely LOVE this idea! But, I don’t think my husband would go for it! We are getting into the “new thirties” over here . . . so that changes things quite a bit! 🙂 Also, we always had issues with soggy nights for a LONG time! . . KWIM?

    Please link this up to my TGIF Link Up one Friday! 🙂 THANKS! 🙂
