Family Spa Night

We try to plan a family night once a month that is different and fun and this month it was spa night. It has been our favorite so far. We set up three stations: facial, pedicure and manicure.

For the facial station we set up a lawn chair (b/c we are classy like that) and set up a little table with homemade facemask, cucumbers, lotion, body spray, lip gloss and a pan with warm water. DSC02862

For the manicure station we set up nail polish, fingernail files, lotion, pan of warm water for soaking and body spray.DSC02864

For the pedicure station we set up the same as above except in the foot tub we put a body sponge and soap.


We started the night off by getting into our pj’s and sipping pink lemon-aide.

 DSC02867We read a cute little book that came with the spa kit called Spa-di-da. Chris and I took the girls through each station first so they could know what to do when it was our turn. At the beginning of each station we sprayed the girls with body spray to help them relax (Ellie’s idea). We played classical music in the background to help set the mood:)They were so cute and into the whole thing. After Ellie’s facial she said that her skinning was soft and glowing:) We acted like the girls were our clients and they did the same for us. DSC02869   DSC02876 DSC02877

For the facial mask we used 1/4 cup of oatmeal, 2 T of warm water and a dollop of yogurt. It didn’t smell that great but they didn’t seem to mind.DSC02871 DSC02868DSC02872

I love the times when we all really enjoy the moment we are in. No whining, no grumpies, no complaining and not thinking about what I should be cleaning or my to do list. Just appreciating being together!! This was one of those nights and I loved it!!
