A simple, fun Family Home Evening - Makes Me Happy

Our lives lately have swirled into a little black hole where our normal lives don't exist. It's extremely frustrating when this happens, because we become accustomed to this new black hole.

I woke up today and said to myself - I AM SNAPPING OUT OF IT! I am going to get back into my housekeeping schedule, my work schedule, and Sunday I'm going to church. Well, since tonight was Monday I decided the first step in getting back to normal is to do {Family Home Evening}
Something we haven't done in a while, and something that is much needed not only in our home, but everyone's home. Please click on the link that the words Family Home Evening gave to read about it, or under my topics click on FHE.

Tonight's Family Home Evening, since being the first in while, I made it extremely simple... and fun. I made {Rich Dark Chocolate Fudge Sauce} in my adorable {Wildtree Fondue Set} and we sat around the table dipping strawberries and took turns saying.... "so and so (somebody sitting at the table) makes me happy when...." and then we say what makes us happy.

Some of Jayden's responses: "Ella makes me happy when she makes a big mess." "Ella makes me happy when she screams" I'm starting to think he didn't get it LOL... but he had some good ones in there too like, "Mama makes me happy when she hugs me."

We had laughs, the chocolate dipped strawberries were delicious and there's another Family Home Evening memory that will stick with my kids in their hearts. Another Family Home Evening that will keep us as a family strong.

My goal from here on out is to make sure that I do Family Home Evening every, single Monday - no matter how hectic the day has been. This is something my family needs, even if it's 10 minutes of sharing a few laughs, without the TV and a delicious treat.
