3 Ways to Prepare for a Perfect Movie Night

We've been doing Family Movie Night on Fridays for a while now.  That's pretty easy for us-- we have tons of kid-friendly movies in our collection (or we head to the library) and the kids take turns choosing who gets to pick what we watch.  But after the kids go to bed, my husband and ...
