family movie night

every friday we do family movie night. we started this about a year ago in the hopes of cultivating a fun family day for our kids to look back on in fondness. we have dreams of one day making our home a safe and fun place for our teenage kids and their friends to hang out on friday nights that they actually think is cool. 

i know, i said it was a dream. a girl can try....

we always have popcorn and hot cocoa. several weeks ago i decided to start making my own popcorn. THIS week i got brave and attempted kettle corn. 

i look up a recipe and then strayed from it. mistake no.1. here is the recipe:

1/4 cup oil (i decided to channel Paula Deen and used butter)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup corn kernels
1 tsp. coarse salt

it turned out more like carmel corn, which isn't bad but it wasn't what i was going for. i think i burnt the butter and it turned brown. next week i will follow the rules. 

i love snuggling up on the couch with my family. 

do you have any weekly traditions?
