A Simply Great Evening
After Dad got home from work, we played Rummikub and Blokus simultaneously (well, David and I did - one kid wanted to play each game and not the other, so we were happy for the challenge of doing both at the same round table, both adults with each kid) while Dad ate his dinner.
Then we all ate dessert together: homemade Pseudo-Banana-Cream-Pie. I made a Graham Cracker crust (except I used McVitie's Digestive Biscuits), sliced bananas over it, poured vanilla yogurt over those, and crumbled more digestive biscuits crumbs in a heart shape on top. Pretty good. Hard to serve, though.
Then, as we'd been listening to Pathétique by Beethoven, David and I were explaining to the kids how Billy Joel had made a cover of it, adding words (This Night, from the Movin' Out album), so we had to sing it to them over the Beethoven so they could see how it went. We alternated playing the Billy Joel and Beethoven versions, and ended up dancing in the living room to both (father-daughter and mother-son couples). We were being silly and trying fancy dance moves, with serious giggling ensuing.
As I sent the kids up to brush teeth, Emily remarked on what a wonderful evening it had been.
Fun fun fun!
Thank You, God, for precious times like these.

I googled "Digestive Biscuits" not the most appetizing name, lol! I'm thinking is someone sick or on a special diet, that they need digestive bisquits? lol Guess not, eh.
I'm glad you had a nice family night! God is good.
