Family Night

We had Family night last night. We met up for dinner and then went to see Ghost Rider. The movie was fine, but the dinner was much, much better. I swear my family are some of the funniest people ever!

My parents were telling us this story about how they went to bed the other night. My dad, who usually falls asleep in about three seconds was laying there wide awake. A few minutes goes by, his mind racing, and he says to my mom “are you awake?". My mom jumps a little and says, "oh no, I had just drifted off to sleep". Dad says back “My mind is racing, I am just not tired at all!". So mom (totally being my mom and always being up for talking) starts telling him about her plan for the flower beds. She is just talking away when she hears my dad say "Shhhh...It’s time to sleep now". Mom, a little taken aback says, "so, did you just wake me up to tell me it was time to sleep?!?!" Dad just says "Shhhhhhhhh..." Then he starts snoring!!! Mom, of course is now wide awake thinking about her flower beds. She actually laid there for half an hour then got up to take a Tylenol PM! My parents just crack me up.

The entire night was filled with stories and laughing. There was even a little political debating going on (never should have told my parents about my liberal side). We then headed to the movie, which in my opinion was a little over done. Mom and Boo had issues with the ghosts and what not, but I would not ever call it scary. It wasn't anything I want to own...or really ever see again, but the movie doesn't really matter. We had a wonderful night hanging out with the entire family. Perfect!
