Family Night: Chef Night

It's been a long week!

Jeff spent the beginning of this week doing things for school, then the last part of the week he was in Chicago for business. So, he was exhausted when he got home this evening. I, too, was rather worn out because, well...Jeff's been gone all week!

So, we made Family Night short and sweet.

Earlier in the week, when I asked the kids what they wanted to eat for dinner on Friday night, they said they wanted to make homemade pizzas. So, I decided that since we were going to be making our own pizzas, that we would all be 'chefs' for the night.

We made chef hats using poster board and tissue. Then, we each made our own personal pizza.

For dessert, we made sugar cookies and the kids got to decorate their own cookie. Then, we all watched Ratatouille together.

Short and sweet. Simple and easy. Well, we'll just say it was as easy as it could have been...baking with three kids!

Thanks to Heather at Whittaker Woman for inspiring Family Nights!
