We had our first official "family night" in October. I don't know why I decided to name our night of fun but Ellington was ALL ABOUT IT. It definitely made us realize that we need to have official Family Nights more often!
We started off with French bread pizza which is something Ellington can pretty much do by herself. She loved helping with supper!
At some point during the day when I told Ellington that we were going to have a special family night that night she decided that she wanted to make a card for Mommy and Daddy and let us pick something out of her treasure box. Precious! She was so proud and excited about giving us cards and surprises! She's really the sweetest girl ever.
Then it was time to carve the pumpkin! Look at Ellington's face! Ha! She thought the inside was super yucky.
Robert told Ellington that she needed to help him think of a design for the face. Ellington ran off to grab and piece of paper and then she drew exactly what she wanted.
She was just a little bossy as she supervised her Daddy. ;)
The last thing we did was eat snacks and watch Spookly the Square Pumpkin.
What a fun, simple night that Ellington thought was the BEST THING EVER. :)
