The Return of Family Night!

Tonight was a Football themed Family Night. I decided on a football theme since next Sunday is Super Bowl and the kids will be with their Mommie Dearest. So we pretty much had a Super Bowl party without that pesky game to distract the men!

Those who had their own jersey wore them...

Mr. T wore his own type of Football gear...

We played a football themed ring toss game

And Charades with football words, like Punt
(which is what I believe I was acting out here!)

The table was decorated with all things football...

And dinner came from the Concession stand!

We ended the night with a football themed movie,
Leatherheads with George Clooney.

It ended up not being a very good movie,
not so great for kids (even teenage ones)
so we cut it off early.

Despite the poor movie choice, we had a lot of fun. I think this was the best Family Night yet!

Family Nights are so easy to plan. Use things you have around the house or things you find on sale (like all the football deco!) and plan a night based around them. I've said it before, but Family Nights work no matter what age your kids are. So many of the moms in the bloggy world have kids 10 years younger than mine, but it doesn't matter how old they are, kids just love the true quality family time this tradition ensures! I am hoping to have one at least one Family Night per month this year! Now, go check out Heather's blog for a lot more Family Night ideas and have one yourself!
