"Your Night"

  Whether you have 1 child, or 10 children, having individual time with them is a great way to bond, and  have some  1-on-1 time.  A few years ago we got the idea to keep each child up 30 minutes later than all the other kids to do just this.  We call it "Your Night."  They get to play a game w/ Mom & Dad of their choice.  Either the Wii, or a board game.  We haven't done this in a long time, and both us and the kids have missed it. A few nights ago started with the oldest boy, since our oldest child( & daughter) gets to stay up later most nights on a regular basis.  Tonight was a lot of fun with our 5th child, and 4th son Daniel.  Tonight we both played the Wii with him.  The games we played were from Wii Play Motion.  I highly recommend this.  Below are some pictures of us with Daniel on "His night." : )

How do you spend 1-on-1 time w/ your children?

Mariann's Birthday Celebration

We celebrated Mariann's 2nd Birthday with our good friends the Galvan's (minus Joe) : (
It was a fun time. Big sister Alisha helped start the day with some Pink/Purple pancakes, decorated the house in pink/purple, and made a beautiful cake to top it all off. Here are pictures of the celebration...
