Family Pizza Night

Well, I think we've hit on a great family tradition! Tonight I decided to make our favorite homemade pizza. But instead of making one big one, I divided up the dough into four parts.

First, I let the kiddos make theirs. I set out the pizza stone and gave them each their pieces of dough and let them pat them out (with a little help).

Then I laid out the pizza sauce, pepperonies and cheese and let them top their pizzas.


They had so much fun and I don't think they've ever eaten their pizza any better! Vince and I each made our own, too, and it definitely hit the spot!

We all ate on the tv trays and watched It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! I love that one!!
We never eat dinner in front of the tv--we're very big on family dinners at the table. However, tonight seemed like a good time to make an exception and I'm glad we did.

Wow, homemade pizza and It's The Great Pumpkin? That is a fantastic combination. I think we just might have to do that this weekend too.

Hi Lora,
I knew from reading your lovely words I had to visit right away, and I am so glad I did! Thank you for your sweet comment. Oh, the best thing was to hear your receipt my p/card:)
What a beautiful place you have here...lovely indeed! Let me say that your site is one of those so lovely places I've been to since I started this journaling work.
As for pizza, I'm not different from your kiddos:) Most of the time I get my home-delivery pizza to home.
Hoping to be back to you upon I receive the p/cards -yet nothing arrived me:)
Give a warm hug for your cute kiddos -Oh I and your princess, we have the same eye color, cheers:)

Lora, thanks for the nice things you said about the postcard swap. It really was lots of fun for me and I'm glad that everyone else has enjoyed it too. You've received all the cards because 10 people participate subtract yourself and that leaves 9. I can't wait to read your post. I think you are the 1st to get them all. Your mail seems to be the fastest. This weekend I'm going to send out a email quizzing everyone about what they have and haven't received. I was really pleased at how diverse people's cards were. Thanks again for playing along. We'll do it again.

Ps the homemade pizza looks delious!

Yum! And family dinners in front of the tv can be fun, too! :)

Sounds fun and those pizzas look delicious!

Looks like fun! I love those TV specials, they remind me of when I was a kid. I especially love when the Grinch comes on at Christmas time, that is my all time favorite I think. But the Charlie Brown ones are great too!
