If you have been in your Parry home for a while or just recently moved in, this time of year can get you thinking of creating some traditions with your family and building memories to cherish in your Parry home. Start now and create some family rituals that your family can look forward to for years to come. Here are some ideas you may want to start with.
Take a family photo in the same place every year, whether it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas. If you have kids, take their picture every year on the first day of school.
Have one night a week for movie night, game night or make whatever you want for dinner night.
Hold a family night slumber party in the family room. Kids love this. Build an indoor tent of blankets and sheets to sleep under and make popcorn or have root beer floats as a treat while watching a favorite movie.
If it’s a rainy Saturday, have an indoor picnic. Spread out a blanket or better yet, some beach towels to have your indoor feast. After your picnic, maybe you could play some games or pull out old family photos and tell stories of when the pictures were taken.
For every holiday have something special that your family will associate with it. For Thanksgiving, maybe it’s a favorite pie that you won’t make at any other time. For Christmas, have a special tree decorated with ornaments made only by the kids. On the Fourth of July, watch the fireworks from the same place with your family, and for birthdays, buy two dozen helium balloons with long ribbons hanging from the bottom of the balloon and let them loose in the family room to cascade from the ceiling and celebrate your family members special day.
If your kids are still young, you don’t want to miss out on building memories with them in your Parry home. As you know, time goes fast and if you don’t pay attention, before you know it the time to make memories will have passed you by. Take time with your family and enjoy your wonderful Parry home and the warmth of the memories that will fill its space. You will create a home that everyone wants to be a part of.
