Many families look forward to having a Family Fun Night on Fridays.  Is this something your family does?  Tell us about it!  What are your favorite Friday night activities?  How does your family have fun and create memories together?  Please share!

10 Ways to Nurture Laughter in Your Home

When I saw this post in my Inbox this morning, I knew I had to share it!  Not only does it perfectly express what I'm trying to encourage here in my weekly TGIF - Thank God It's {Family Fun} Friday Link Up, but it is written by one of my favorite authors, Sally Clarkson!!  Sally has encouraged my mother's heart innumerable times through her writing, and I have practically worn out her book, Seasons of a Mother's Heart, by re-reading it so much and highlighting it all over the place!  :)  

So, today I encourage you to click over and read "10 Ways to Nurture Laughter in your Home" by Sally Clarkson!  Then, come back here and share one way that you encourage fun and laughter in your home!!!

Your Turn to Share:

How does your family have fun and build memories?  What family traditions do you have?  How do you encourage a spirit of fun and laughter and joy in your home?

Please share your ideas in the comments section or link up your blog!  You can share any past or present blog post that shares ways to create memories, build family traditions, or have fun as a family!  Just be sure to link back to my blog or add my blog button to your post!

One thing I've done through the years is to sing silly songs with my kids. I remember making up little songs to sing to them when they were babies, and then I made up silly songs that we sang together as they got older. I remember that I used to set the oven timer for "5:00 Clean Up time" each day, and we would all rush around cleaning up the messes of the day. IF we finished before the timer rang, we would all sing and dance around and enjoy our "We beat the timer dance!" LOL! These days, my older kids love making up Very Silly Songs while cleaning up the kitchen in the evenings! They sing at the top of their lungs! One thing you should probably know is that only a few of us can carry a tune in our family!! That minor detail makes these songs all the more crazy and fun! :)
