For Carter's birthday, the family I nanny for gave him lots of musical instruments. By far his favorite is the harmonica. He loves to play it and plays it often.
In our church, "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints," every Monday night is dedicated to Family Home Evening. Family Home Evening consists of a time you get together as a family and have a spiritual lesson, play games, and/ or have a treat together. It isn't always all three but it is usually a mixture of. We have found a lot of joy out of having "FHE" in our family. Sometimes they can be quite successful thanks to the new Nursery Manuals and other times they can go like this (or worse):

Matt puts Carter to bed every night that he is home. Right as he is laying him in his crib Matt usually says things like this,
"Carter you are so wonderful. You are my angel. I love you so much."
Last night Matt added to his repertoire, "Carter, you are my treasure."
To which Carter quickly turned and said, "No Daddy, treasure is for pirates."
