I love traditions. We definitely love our Friday nights- pizza, popcorn, and movie! I started a list a while back of our movies- back when we were watching through the alphabet. Now we each have a week to pick a movie. The kids so look forward to picking. I like netflix's different queues so the kids can pick from our Friday night movie night queue. And I love our air popper for the popcorn- good purchase! Here's some of what we've watched:
