Fun Game Night!

Last night was so fun!

I had not played Balderdash in a
very long time but remembered it
was a great game.

In the end there were ten players
around the table.

Mrs. Rabe, of Creekside Cottage,
was not intending to play
but got drafted to be our permanent
reader and score keeper.
This made eleven.

That worked out very well!

If laughter is the medicine you
need, this game and creative players
might be just the prescription for

And in case you get the word
"flews" it is not "hillbilly
speak" for is
the name for the lip flap on
certain breeds of dogs

Just thought you might need to
know that one!

This week a new friend was asking about
our church and how the socialization
works with the teenagers. I told her
that we do all of our activities as families.
She was intrigued.

I wish she could have been there to see the
mixing of the ages. Our table wasn't the
only one being loud and having a great time.
There was a group at the next table playing
Uno Attack. Both tables had young people
as well as parents and single adults playing
together. Not an unhappy or
sulky person in the mix.

Looking forward to our next Game Night sometime
over the winter. Hot Chocolate, tea, sweet and
salty snacks and good friends.
There will be much laughter,
good conversation and
many well intended challenges.

I wish all of you could join us!

Have a great weekend!

I use to love game night with my kids and friends. Now I play games on my computer at night while watching TV. Definitely not the same experience.

That sounds like so much fun! I've never played Balderdash. I'm going to have to find that game next I go to Target and see what it's all about. We do like to play Uno, Sorry(my favorite) and the Life.

It was an awesome night! So much fun!

Did you know that the initials P.H.M.S. stand for "Please hold me, sweetness!" hee hee

Those Uno Attack players were really having a loud and crazy time. Sarah had a blast!

Mrs. Rabe,

You are soooo bad!

It was a blast. I think it was the most fun Game Night Ever!

I guess we have Nigel to thank for this one.
