entertainment.

besides music of course... here are some things we do for entertainment in our frugal home.

game entertainment: besides the Wii which we usually play at night and on the weekends, we've found a few 'new' games that we love to play during the day while the little boys are napping.

The Ladybug Game.
VERY fun and cute.
I would HIGHLY recommended it to any pre-schooler :)
i believe i got it on sale at Target for $5 a few Christmasses ago, though it's not too costly even at full price :)


War.
who doesn't LOVE a game of war?
great for learning number/face card values.

TV entertainment.

Desperate Housewives
House
LOST
My Name is Earl
Kath & Kim
The Office
Grey's Anatomy
Friday Night Lights
(throw in a little American Idol and The Biggest Loser... if I have time to sit around)
mind you, we have regular old cable.
no tivo. no DVR recorder thing. no hi-def whatever... so our Thursday nights involve taping (yes, VHS taping) The Office while we watch Grey's. Then we watch The Office on Friday before Friday Night Lights comes on. (Unless I go to bed very early on Thursday, in which case we watch the rerun of Grey's on Saturday)

Movies entertainment: As in... "it was on TV, we got is as a Christmas gift, we rented it with gift cards, or we checked it out of the library" movies. We've been out of the movie loop for so so long. I do miss movies. We did start a little movie watching spree over the holidays, but we are back out of any movie routine at the moment. Here's a list of what we did watch...

The Chronicles of Narnia:The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
High School Musical
High School Musical 2
High School Musical 3
Tinkerbell
Batman Begins
The Dark Night
I now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry
Pineapple Express

ok... so what movie(s) do we need to put on our list of movies to see??
i really do have a list of 'movies to see' up in a kitchen cupboard :)
happy week to you all!!

For family entertainment...we love any of the Snow Buddies movies. We also have Fireproof if you and Dave ever need a "date night" movie!

I would agree about the Snow Buddies movies...my kids think they are hilarious! We are making our way through all the old Disney movies here....

Aren't board games great? I still think that is one of my favorite things to do with the kids (when the weather is forcing us inside.)

That game looks interesting. I'll have to check it out next time I'm near a Target. Have you played Hungry, Hungry Hippos? Joey absolutely loves that one.

Some of the movies I like to watch with the kids are Chicken Little, Charlotte's Web, and Cars.

We are the same way with movies. We are about 4 years behind. We use the library a lot and only go to 1 or 2 movies a year. We actually saw Slumdog Millionaire (R) last weekend and really enjoyed it.

We LOVE the ladybug game at the HennHouse. L.O.V.E. it.

Movies? Anything Pixar or Signing Time or Muppets. The three-year-old recently fell in love with Chip and Dale.
