That's why I like this time because it gives a more "Quality-Time" with the family, as it is said so beautifully today. No "roaming around" and wurschtelt until late in the evening outside, all of them are "in the parlor". Also common television evenings and such, my husband and I have reveled in childhood memories. It was a TV series we've seen.
