Well, last night we finally broke open one of the kids new games from Christmas. We all agreed to try Apples to Apples and had a REALLY good time. I bought this game on a whim from the advice of the great women on SHS and I think it's our new favorite. We laughed soooo hard that I had to go lay down after the game because my ribs hurt. I think we'll try our other new game tonight, Monopoly Here and Now. I'm not sure that it'll be as much fun but this was one of the few things that Jon actually asked for this Christmas. I can already see myself losing terribly.LOL I have two World Domination men in my household and really if Allison or I win tonight that will be the last time this game will be

We had a good day today. I actually got up early this morning (a first in a great and had everyone ready to go on time to church this morning. What an accomplishment.LOL Jon decided to join us at our new church and afterwards said that he really liked it. This pastor is really great to listen to. I seem to learn something new each time we go. I look forward to going each week. All of the church's studies and such start up again this week and I'm considering getting involved. I'm not sure if I should wait until after the baby gets here since I wouldn't be able to actually finish anything if I started going right now but I really like the idea of just jumping in and getting involved. It's been close to 3 years since we've had a church home and I really miss the fellowship. Isaac and Genevieve were really good at the service and even the few times that they acted up were no problem for this pastor.

After church, we went to lunch at Larry's Giant Subs and just happened to run into my parents.LOL We had a good time talking and eating. The littles are so funny. They were ready to run by the time we got to lunch and basically that's what they did. I'm glad that the place was empty. Isaac is just fascinated by the gumball machines and spent most of the time checking each one over and over

Well, our plans for New Year's Eve are quite We plan on putting the littles to bed on time. Then play the new Monopoly game. After that, perhaps trying to do our annual puzzle. Jon and I both got one of those new globe puzzles, looks pretty challenging. If we do the puzzle, it'll need to be completed before tomorrow, or it will be destroyed.LOL Then I'll kiss my dh whose last day off is tomorrow and go to

We got Apples to Apples also, but haven't tried it yet. Not sure if our 7yo will be able to play it, but we'll see.

Happy New Year!

I hope the church works out for you. It's unsettling when you don't feel at home in one, doesn't it?

I'm going to have to check out this game!

The more I hear about this game, the more I am convinced I need to get it!

The game was a lot of fun BUT the vocabulary is pretty big for those under 10 or so. I would go with the junior edition and maybe mix it with the older edition if I had youngers trying to play.


Yes, it's be hard not having the fellowship of a good church. I'm so thankful that we've been able to find one up here since we've moved. It looks like a close knit very active group of Christians.
