family fun...

We received these two games for Christmas and have played them several times over the past few days.

Apples to Apples is our favorite- you have to match nouns to adverbs/verbs, but you have to get creative in the process. Sometimes you have to defend your choice, which gets noisy and funny. Hhmm...must be why it's a favorite, my kids LOVE to tell you what they think!

Pictureka is like I Spy, you have to find certain items in a certain amount of time, sometimes on your own, sometimes against other players. I'm not very good at this game, the kids can find things way faster than me. My eyes tend to just roam the boards.

We love to play games- does your family have a favorite?

memories of Christmas past...

I did my digital scrapbook pages for 2007...it's so fun to look back at the memories. I have Christmas scrapbooks going back to 1990, our first Christmas.

I thought I'd share...what memories are you creating this Christmas Eve?
