Family Night #2- Backwards Night

Tonight we had our second family night! We celebrated all thing opposite or backwards!

Here they are with their clothes turned backwards!

We also set up our table under the table! I learned a few things while eating on my floor. One
is that I love that I eat in chairs and I confirmed that the cheap Ikea rug needs to GO!

We ate dessert first and I let them pick it out at the grocery store today, which is
why we have frosted cookies. I also turned them upside down.

We had hotdogs or cheese and a bun for Parker!
The hotdog was on the outside of the bun!

For our devotional, Jason read from Mark 9:35, which states
35And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.”
We talked about what that looks like at school, at home,
with our friends and how we
are to serve others!

Next, we played upside down Limbo!
The kids first jumped over the stick and them we started from
the lowest point and got higher!
You will notice that Bradley is without pants now because
of course, he had an accident.
He is also in a pull up because Mommy
needs a break.

Emery’s turn.. with a dance flair to it!

Bradley didn’t quite get the devo of putting others

Emery again, with her face cut off, but an amazing dance move..

Parker going big..

Bradley again..

We had fun again and the kids are really enjoying it, which is what it is about!
I would encourage you to have a Family Night, as well! I know that these are the days we will miss, so I am going to make them memorable!

    Your kids are totally cracking me up in these pics! Looks like y’all had a great time, and we are having family fun nights too a lot!
    Tonight we are having Chinese, well not the kids but Matt and I, and I haven’t figured out the rest yet. Love y’all!

    I totally love the verse you incorporated with this idea… how fun! The kids look like they are having the time of their life!

    I love this idea, Kelly! We have had to schedule Family Night for the past few years – making sure we take the time to spend together. I love that you’re giving the nights a theme. Aside from ‘Fancy Night’ (over and over), we just hang out. I’m going to borrow this idea!
