family movie night

The other night our advent calendar activity was to have a family movie night.

We had never had a movie night before, but it was so great. We put aside pulling up meds, mixing meals, taking out trash, laundry, setting up for dressing change, and a hundred other little things we could have been doing, and we sat down as a family and watched a movie. We don't do that enough. Rest. Relax. Love on each other.

Jonah did pretty well. He got down on the floor and played more than sat on the couch but he definitely watched as he played. We picked "Polar Express"since it has a train. And Matt and I hadn't seen it yet, so it held our attention too.

Such a good night.
