Beware Of The Volcano! Family Fun Night #DipDipHooray

So, many of you don’t know that I am a new stay-at-home mom/grad student. I am still adjusting to not working, it’s only been two weeks. I do find a lot of perks of being at home, like spending time with my family, always having time for house work, always having time for blog work and school work.

Speaking of school work, the classes started this week and the workload is unreal! They do expect a lot from a grad student and I am rusty! It’s been over 4 years since I got my BA and I have not been to school since. I’m glad that I have all this time to work on my classes.

I really do like that I have all this time to spend with my husband. When I was working, we didn’t send the little man to day care. Instead, we worked completely separate hours so we never, ever saw each other. It’s been really good for our family for me to be home.

I also like to do family dinners now and family game and movie nights. To some, it may seem like a nothing new but we never had a family dinner unless it was a holiday. Like I said, we worked separate hours. So, a few days ago, I got us a new game to play on Wii. We all LOVE Wii, it’s just so much fun! I also made the boys a fun dinner…

The little man has been into dipping lately, especially dipping into ketchup. Yesterday, I saw him dip his goldfish crackers into ketchup. Silly boy! He usually gets french fries only as a special treat when we go to see daddy at work. I decided to buy some and treat him to some baked fries. This was a first time we tried the chicken nuggets…they were all gone in a flash!

  I made a Fries and Nuggets VOLCANO! Yes, a volcano and it came with a story! It…was..awesome!

There was a small, crispy island of OreIda that had the Mt. CrinkleCut on it (Hubby came up with the names) It was a peaceful and quiet home for the Nugget Dinasours, aka the Tysonsaurus. Where they lived their nice lives…

They were not aware that the Mt. CrinkleCut was actually a volcano! One day, they felt the rumble from below. They got scared and started running…

The Mt. CrinkleCut volcano started spewing hot, red lava! There went the island of OreIda!

After we had our fun with dinner, we went to play some Wii.

We just got a new Hasbro Family Game Night game to try. We got the first one, I’m thinking we will get the others too!  It had Battleship (my favorite), Sliders, Yahtzee, Connect Four and Boggle. Classic board games on Wii = fun!

    I’m also returned to grad school after many years (13 to be exact) and wrapping my brain around APA citations the first semester was nerve-wracking! Love the volcano and for some reason, now I want some french fries!

    As a grad student, I’m always floored when I read about others who can juggle all sorts of things and still manage to tackle those studies! Thanks for a very inspiring post about life’s gems for those of us who have our noses in the books far too often–there will definitely be some fun volcano nights between the pages this month!
