Do you have any traditions for Friday night?
My dh always goes to Shul (temple) and I light candles. When he comes home we make Kiddush have a home cooked fancy meal with a few courses and sing songs and relax. We go to bed early and we are very religious so we don't do "work" the whole night (and next day of course). It is really a peaceful beautiful calming time. It makes the stress of the week fade away and we can really focus on our family because there are no outside distractions. I really really love Shabbos.
Dh goes to shul. Now that Shabath starts earlier, David stays up until daddy comes back and he has dinner with us, at least for a while. He loves because he gets to have "grape water"
Now with a 3 year old and a 6 month old I'm keeping Shabath dinner to just us. Hopefully, once we're more relaxed we can start having guests over.
We have a similar evening to mom@20. Something special we do is my husband bentches/blesses each child after coming home from shul. It's the first thing he does before anything else. Even the baby gets ready, waits in line, lol. When I am expecting, he bentches the baby inside. When he bentches the kids, he puts his hands on their head and says the brocha.
My five year old brings her parsha project to show my husband. I love this part!!!
Hi! So nice to find other frum mommies on the board!
Now that Shabbos comes in later, I usually put the kids to bed before bentching licht. As soon as I finish, my husband goes to shul, then he comes back and we enjoy a simple (but Shabbosdik) dinner together. We're usually so tired by the time Shabbos rolls around that we have challah with chumus and guacamole, soup with kneidelach, and occasionally a bit of kugel. DH is a vegetarian, so he's happy with the simplified menu. After bentching, he stays up and learns for awhile - Mommy hits the sack!
We are frum Jews. My husband and daughter go to shul every single Friday night and Shabbos day. We always do the whole kiddush and meal Friday night and day.
I stay home with our son because he can't walk that far yet. On Succos I got to go to shul. Pushed my son in the stroller. It was nice.
I light candles, we bless DD together, and sit down for dinner. When our Shul has services here in the Valley (once a month), we walk together to Shul, pushing DD in her stroller and eat dinner when we return.

Second time's the charm: I fell for a Marine.
We light the candles every Friday night and have our sabbath dinner. We do go to shul when they have the tot shabbat services. My son has always fought me on going to shul mainly because their father isn't Jewish. But now that my husband goes with us even though he isn't Jewish it's not as much of a fight. He has beent hinking about converting lately. I really would love him to.
