I designated tonight, a family movie and snack night! The teen girl didn’t even grumble. Of course, food IS involved.
I let everyone pick a snack. I picked the movie. It’s a Wonderful Life. (NONE of them have EVER seen it – is that possible?) And, because I was in a generous mood…I even let them watch it, in color.
My 2 favorite lines from the movie?
“George Bailey, I’ll love you til the day I die.”
“I like him. I like George Bailey.”
Those 2 lines, always make me smile!
I think everyone enjoyed the movie. The girl thought it was a smidgen long and took a while to get to the point. Mikey said he liked it. And, yes, the husband said that it was good! (Can I get a Hallelujah?) I feel vindicated.
Oh…yeah. WHAT did everyone pick to eat?
Mikey picked 2 things – salami rolls and mini-pigs in a blanket. (I might have done some of the salami rolls with baby dills and some of the mini-pigs, with cheese…)
Mike picked Shrimp and Crab (with homemade cocktail sauce)
I picked Jalapeno Poppers (even made Bronco Berry sauce for them!) And, anytime I can break out my Fry Daddy, I’m happy.
Maddie picked Cheese Fries (and, of course, homemade ranch with them!)
I think everyone REALLY liked the snacks. Let’s face it – I do apps the best. 😉
That was our household, on this Saturday night. I love those 3 people, more than anything in this world. And, I realize that I’m very blessed and thankful for MY wonderful life.
