We try to do a family night every other week. We trade who is in charge of the night. I try and make family night extra special especially when I’m in charge of it.
We do movie night about once a month! Usually we just put the couch cushions on the floor and cover them with several blankets and pillows. This time I made a blanket fort with a snack stand. Add your favorite drinks and snacks. Don’t forget the popcorn!! Try out some carmel popcorn. My kids were so excited to see the living room transformed into our family night. The blanket fort and the snack stand made this night extra special.
We had a meat lover style pizza and a chicken, spinach and dried tomato pizza for dinner! So tasty and yummy!!

Roll out the pizza dough. Add the pizza sauce and spread out leaving about 1/2 inch of around the border of the crust. Sprinkle on the cheese and then add the meats.
