Welcome to family game night!

Our family game nights and family nights have been resurrected, and we are having so much fun! Last night we played Yahtzee and Frog Juice. Both are games loved by everyone in the family, and while Frog Juice says it is for 8 and up, we have found it’s great for 5+.

Most of the time playing games together is just wonderful. Except for the tantrums when people lose. Or the times when someone says “I’m losing, I’m going to quit!”. We just won’t talk about those times. ;)

We ended the evening with some cuddling and scripture-reading together and individually. Watching my girls read to themselves before they go to sleep brings tears to my eyes. I love it when they can’t wait to see what happens next!

I love Yahtzee. I prefer to play it on the computer (not that I EVER do anymore). The sound of the dice can get old.

I had two nephews and one niece last night, so our activity was dancing to Christmas music. The big kids gave the little kids piggyback rides. It was great fun.
