Bedtime Stories

Recently my family rented the Adam Sandler movie Bedtime Stories. I love everything Adam Sandler and thought this would be a great family movie. As always I was right! This was one of the best movies I had seen in a while. If you have not seen it I would highly recommend it.














The best part of the movie is what has happened every night since we watched it. The whole family gathers together in my bed and we all take turns telling wild, crazy bedtime stories. It is so awesome. The kids imaginations simply amaze me.




We have been royalty in castles,





soldiers in the civil war,







pioneers in the Midwest,








cowboys in the wild west,



storm troopers









and have even fought off angry dinosaurs.



I have even taken the time to write down some of these stories in hopes of sharing them with my children when they are grown and maybe even my own grandchildren.

How sweet that you guys make up stories!

I haven't seen this movie but I love Adam Sandler, I love him so much I even invited him to my HS graduation and then later on to my wedding. Seriously. He didn't come though, wonder why.

I loved that movie. I miss the days when my son was young enough to crawl in bed with me.

Have a great 4th.

Happy VGNO!

What a wonderful family tradition you stumbled onto! After you get a nice collection, you should use a self-publishing site like lulu.com to create a book of your family's stories... Christmas gifts?

Happy VGNO!
