Game Night

Once a month we are going to try to have a game night- this was our second month- sounds so wholesome huh? It has been a lot of fun- my friend Lisa and her daughter have come both times- and it has been great to see them again- this month we had a bit of a younger crowd but it was so fun to connect with the teens too. They wanted to play Twister and I did not have one- so we made one up on the floor- and then finally they went to Wal-mart to buy one. We played Pictionary, and Yahtzee, and some game like Where's Waldo- we laughed a lot and had fun. Jen's parents came and even had a good time. I was however the only adult that played Twister! You gotta live a little.

I am certain you all think we are crazy- but we have to be to have 5 kids right? Jen puts up with me and I appreciate that- I do love her so to go along with me and my ideas!

I am going to just keep inviting different people each month and see what happends- I am hoping that people we don't see very often will finally decide to come. I just bought Cranium, Taboo, and Apples to Apples- anyone have any other group game suggestions?

Emilee and Bryce- on the losing team in Pictionary!
