Family Game Night

my kids love to play games. yesterday we kinda had a family game night. first we played with dominoes. i set them up and they got to knock them down. then we just matched them and made designs. it wasn't a real game, but they like it. after that we played candy land four times. emmy won the first three times. i won the fourth time. andrew was really upset that he didn't get to win. then we played chutes and ladders once and andrew won. finally! then they just played with the dominoes again. it was fun, but sitting on the floor for too long really hurts my hips. i think four games is gonna have to be my limit from now on.

derek was playing some video game. don't ask me what it was, 'cause i don't pay attention to his video games unless they are about hobbits or star trek or star wars.

we do family game nights mostly around the holidays. the weathers isn't great and not much else to do... those games are also great for education too! counting spaces, learning colors, etc. another one my kids like is "Sorry". For some reason I thought Kienna would have to be like 6 or 7 to play. but we started when she was only 4 and she loved it!
