That my friends is the chaos of moving. I had this brilliant idea that because our new house wasn’t too far, we could just move as we go and not feel rushed to be out of the hold house we are renting out until November 1st. So we’ve been moving boxes as we go, living between houses and it’s been a bit more chaotic than I thought it would be. On top of that, we’ve still got work, school, soccer and my daughter’s Volleyball team made it to state championship tournament! So with this crazy life we are living right now, we desperately needed a family night. A night where we could just hang in our new house. Last night was our first night in the new house and I thought I would do something special for the kids and I rented a movie from Redbox, got out a board game and had everyone rally into our new loft for some family time.We decided the loft would kind of be the family hangout room because it was close to all the bedrooms and it was an area that was separated from the kitchen, office and basically away from all distractions!
I rented Zookeeper from Redbox while I was at Walmart. I’ll be honest, I haven’t bought a movie in forever because of my love for Redbox, I mean who doesn’t love movies for a buck?! I also love how convenient it is to grab a movie while I am at Walmart shopping. Sometimes I try to reserve the movies online because usually what we are looking for is not at that one, but I forgot. The kids have been wanting to see Spooky Buddies, kinda bummed they didn’t have it at the Redbox I went to but the Zookeeper movie was actually pretty funny. It’s about a zookeeper who starts to hear the animals talking as they try to help him with his love situation.
I then later found out that Redbox has an android app in which I can look what Redbox location has what movies and you can reserve it from your phone! This will definitely be one of my favorite apps!
For our family fun night,during the movie we enjoyed Mars Chocolate Candy mix (soooo good, Twix, Snickers, 3 Musketeers and Milky Way) and some Clear American water for desert. We also played Sorry! I love seeing their smiling faces!
Since this was our first night in the house, I wanted to make a special breakfast the next morning. I made Snickers Pancakes!
For the time being, we don’t have furniture because it isn’t being delivered until Sunday but we make do with what we have for our breakfast!
Even though the house is a mess, our first night in this house will always be memorable! This family fun night didn’t cost much at all either!
What do you do for family fun night’s?
Want to see more of our family fun! https://plus.google.com/#photos/115520848880526546694/albums/5667829192063085857
