II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Old Fashioned Fun

We are officially declaring Monday evenings as "Game Night" in our house. We've been doing this UN-officially occasionally anyway, but I decided that we might as well make it a rule. It's special time for the kids to get our undivided attention and surprisingly, we enjoy it maybe even more than they do! One of our FAVORITE new games we've gotten is Cadoo. It is seriously the funnest game I've ever encountered that very young children AND adults can both enjoy equally. If you don't know what it is...well, it's kind of like a mumbo-jumbo of lots of other games. There are trivia questions, charades, drawing, go-find-the-article-in-30 seconds, make something out of clay, etc. For instance, the other day Grant got a card that said "You have 30 seconds to find 2 things in the house that have strings you can tie together." It's harder than you think!! One of Matt's cards said "Using clay, make a Big Toe". He has like 1 minute to make it and then we have to try to guess what it is. The trivia is fun stuff like "How many omlets could you make from an Ostrich egg?" and they're usually multiple choice. Anyway, if you have small children, I highly recommend you get this game!! Sorry I didn't take a picture of it. If you want to see what the box looks like, leave me a comment and I'll post a pic. Here are the ones we played last night though.
Last night though, we got out some games that the kids had gotten for Christmas this past year. The first one we did was Twister. Man! I had forgotten how fun and HARD that game is! Here are a few pics from our workout/giggle session. We found ourselves falling down equally as much from laughing as from losing our balance!
If you read my P90X blog, sorry you're reading about this twice and seeing the pics twice...but I just couldn't choose which blog to put this on!
