With four kids, we are always on the go. It seems like every night someone isn't able to be at the dinner table because they are at baseball, dance, scouts, or another after school program. Because life can be so busy, we have made it a priority in our family to have Pizza movie night every Saturday night.

I love this night because it is all about family, being together and enjoying each others company. This night is so important because it is when we can re-connect together and forget our busy life. My kids have told us again and again that they love this night, so this is a tradition we will continue as long as we can.

My favorite part of Pizza Movie night is that my husband makes the most amazing pizza! His pizza crust is homemade and helps make this night amazing.
