Boob Tube Off!

One night last week, I decided that it was just time to turn our TV off. The constant background noise was finally getting on my nerves. So, to my happy surprise, the kids actually found a way to entertain themselves.




Julianne found a box of cards that I had purchased off ebay many, many years ago. She and Mason decided to make everybody and their brother a special card. LOTS of cards were made....with stickers and address labels and markers and tape. It was nice to see the kids having fun doing something other than watching TV.








Soon enough, Alena and Audrey joined in the fun. This went on for about an hour...which, with no TV, seemed like a lifetime. :)




And big sis, this is what she was doing...

I love this idea! I secretly wish it was mandatory once a week - like the tv just shut doesn't work one night! Looks like they had fun!

They look like they had a lot of fun. I can't wait for Hannah to get a little older so she and Lily can play together.

We really need a no tv night around here. Wonder if Disney Channel would disappear while it was off? LOL

aww how sweet! Mine don't really watch a lot of TV anymore, but we have had to shut down their computer lately b/c C recently became addicted to Club Penguin.

I love it! I actually prefer the tv off when I am home by myself. The house seems so much more peaceful!

Your kiddos are just adorable!
