Every Monday night our family likes to get together to spend time with each other. What we do varies from week to week. Sometimes we have discussion about an issue affecting our family, sometimes we play games, and sometimes we go on an adventure! The one constant on all these activities is that focus is always on how will this activity help us to grow closer as a family and increase our faith in Jesus Christ.
Last week we had a wonderful time evening at the “drive-in” to see a movie. It all started last week when I was at Walmart with my oldest son. As we walked in he squeezed my hand and said, “Dad, I like being with you. We go fun places, you listen to me when I talk, and you always buy cool stuff!” My heart melted and I knew I had a reputation to uphold. We had been talking about The Boxtrolls coming out on DVD. Garren spotted it on the shelf so we grabbed it, along with a box of Pop Secret 10ct Home-Style Popcorn. The shelves were pretty empty for both items, so stop by Walmart and pick them up while supplies last.
On Monday I got home a little early (on time) and started our activity. I brought home some cardboard boxes and my wife Kristie gave the kids some paints. The kids loved making their CAR-dboard boxes so they could have something to sit in during the movie. While they were busy, Kristie and I got busy on the Family Night treat. Pop Secret Microwave Popcorn is a great and fast snack, but we don’t do anything halfway on Family Night.
In theme with The Boxtrolls’ trash digging habits, we made popcorn garbage balls. They aren’t incredibly hard, and taste great!
