Guess Who?

Hello! It's been forever since I've been on here. It has been a very busy month! Things are FINALLY starting to slow down. We went to Disney World and then to church camp. It took me about a week to recover from that and then before I knew it, another week has passed me by. I have so many pictures from the last month to post. So...instead of overloading you all at once I'm going to really try and post something everyday. The memory card on my camera is full, and it has NEVER been full!

Does your family play games? If not, you really should! It is such a bonding experience and really fun. Our family LOVES to play games. We try to have a family game night at least once a week. We play everything from Candy Land to Dominoes. Michael and I are both very competitive and we try to keep that in check when playing with Abby. (We love to play cards with our friends and I am known for throwing my cards at him because he makes me SOOO mad!) The other day when we were at Walmart I bought Abby "Guess Who?". Do you rememer that game? I loved it when I was a kid!

We got it home and put it together (boy, did that take a long time) and I taught Abby how to play it. We played several times througout the day and Abby couldn't wait to show Michael when he got home from work. When Michael did get home, Abby was so excited so show him her new game. She loves to talk and explain things. She started to tell him in detail how the game goes and how to play it. I figured Michael would say that he already knew how to play so I whispered in his ear to just let her explain the rules because she was so excited to tell him. After Michael and Abby played a couple of times I said "Isn't that game fun? Didn't you just love to play it when you were a kid?" And guess what? Michael said that he had never played "Guess Who?" I couldn't believe it. Well, Michael is now hooked on this game. You would think that he was 6 years old. In the directions it tells about how you can play while trying to guess 2 people. Each person gets 2 cards instead of one. We didn't think that would work very good, but when Michael and I tried it we had a lot of fun.

Last night after we put the girls to bed and finished the finale of Harper's Island ( I knew it was Henry, but I thought his motive was very weak! I was kinda disappointed) we were going to go to bed and Michael said "How about a game of Guess Who?" We played for 2 hours! I know...we are pitiful! But we had a lot of fun!

If you don't play games together as a family, you should try. It's a lot of fun! That's what a lof of kids are missing these days...special family time together. Besides playing games with just Abby...we (Michael and I) like to play cards, dominoes and other games like that, but I guess we can add "Guess Who?" to our list as well! :)

Talk to you tomorrow!
