. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Family Night In

January 27, 2015

Family Night In

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own.


Since my sister and her family moved here, she had the idea of having a family game night every other month.  With kids in the picture it's hard to spend time alone with just the adults.  Having a quadruple date night in with all of us was a great idea! 

Whether it's just you and your spouse, or two couples or four.  Each couple was responsible for bringing an appetizer and a dessert.  


We had Monster cookies, lemon bars, chocolate covered peanut butter cracker sandwiches, lemon cookies and peanut butter cookies.  So many desserts!  Everything was delicious.  

Thanks to Target registry you can have everything you need for a family game night in. Cookware to make appetizers, kitchen aid mixer for desserts.  Wine glasses for drinks, speakers to play music and a camera to take pictures.

Addilyn put a little damper on our game participation as she wouldn't go to sleep at my parents, so Chris and I missed out on Settlers of Catan and The Game of Things.  Next time though, we'll be playing games!  I think it was a great idea to have a family game night in, and I look forward to many more.  Check out Target registry for everything you need for your own date night in!

And my favorite part of these posts.  One person gets to win a $25 Target gift card.  Just let me know what you'd bring or make for a family game night in the comments below.  Make sure to leave your email address too!

For a game, I'd bring Taboo. For snacks I'd bring cookies and veggies with hummus. Wish we lived close to family to do this. Sounds like fun. (And our kids have trouble going to sleep at other peoples houses too.)
