The kids are now all out of school and with Christmas just a few days away everything is a little bit slower for all of us, so we started today by allowing each family member to choose one day to plan a family outing. We wanted to think of a way to make this Christmas special and memorable for our family. 2012 will be bringing lots of changes to our family as John Robert will be going away to college. We know that it may not be as easy to have all of our family together to just have fun. Cavin and I talked about what we could do and we decided that we would allow each family member to plan a day to do something together as a family (within reason, of course). Each of the kids threw out a lot of ideas and some we couldn't possibly do. Each idea had to be approved by us to be able to do it. Today was John Robert's Day. He chose to go to lunch at Benihana (a Japanese restaurant where they cook the food in front of you) and then to see the movie Mission Impossible 4. We had a good time spending time together as a family. You can see pictures below. Tomorrow is my day (Charlotte's). Read tomorrow to see what family fun I plan for my day!
