Family Movie Night
I love watching a film with the children, together as a family. People have been doing since the television was introduced. families would gather together and watch whatever was airing on. it's a great way to bring the family together.
There is an element of excitement as we prepare our snacks for movie night, and choosing a movie. The boys always want Popcorn, it is an absolute must. We will snuggle up on the sofa, and enjoy the film together (even with the hundred and one questions Jacob and Summer will ask through the movie - but that is part of the fun). We don't have her around enough, but the boys love it when Nanny joins us for the evening she comes for dinner and joins us.
Gracewell a care home provider believe that their residents and families have individual needs for both their level of care and for the quality of life they deserve to have, and movie night is one of the many events Gracewell organize to contribute towards this. It is a regular event at one of their many care homes, where the families are invited and encouraged to come along too.
And to celebrate the movie night initiative Gracewell sent us a DVD (Pan), along with packs of sweets and popcorn, everything we need for a great movie night ourselves. We hadn't watched Pan yet, thus, everyone was super excited, especially Jacob as his favourite story is Peter Pan. We enjoyed the evening as a whole - it was how we love to do movie nights, but it also made me reaslise we need to do movie night more often.
For our next movie night we are already talking about what movie to watch - oh and of course they want 'Nanny' to join us and come around.
