I once heard, the more senses you involve in a memory, the stronger it is. This can only mean that food must be involved. Think about it, many of my nostalgic warm and fuzzy memories include food.

I'm trying to figure out some fun family traditions we can call our own. Here's what we've been doing so far.

Every Monday, after family night, we decided to have smoothies instead of treats. My girls get so excited about their "smoothie drink" and know it's something special we do just on Monday nights. (It also helps me not to eat the leftover treats all week long, only to make more every Monday.)

Usually Sunday after church meals include a lot of scrounging and/or waffles for lunch. On Fast Sundays, I try to make a nicer meal that includes inviting some friends over to share pie for dessert.

What are some of your unique traditions?

  1. Something I'm trying to do with Abigail is have a movie time every Wednesday while Bryant is down for a nap. The idea is to sit on the couch and cuddle and eat popcorn. It didn't go so well last week, and today we skipped. Something about eating popcorn and folding laundry at the same time just doesn't mesh. I might have to rethink this.
