game nights~

Winter games are on ... not the Olympics; but sitting around the dining room table ones... and they can become as intense as an Olympic game.  It seems once the weather changes over to fall ~ then winter; is time for the card and board games to surface in the evenings at our house.  Last night it was the Phase 10 game and Racko.  Both of them are fun card games.  I got my butt kicked in both! Plus, I was even the score keeper ... what's wrong with that picture ... I'm so honest.

Other games that we play a lot of through out the winter months will be Cribbage, Smear, Scatagories, Scrabble, Sorry, Yhatzee, Boggle, Gestures, Monopoly, Battleship, Sharp Shooters, Rummikub, Shut Box, Dominoes, Taboo, Tripoley, Balderdash, Hunting Trivia Pursuit and our newest Tribond. Yes, we play a lot of games.

What else is there to do when the weather gets cool? make babies ... I don't think so!
My baby makin' days are long gone ...
now I just teach my baby's babies how to play board and card games. lol
We have a cute little fawn that's been visiting ... he's more like a preteen ... he's already outgrown his spots.  I've been putting some corn and apples out in the corner of the yard for him and for the birds.

Here he is with a leaf on his ear.
I'm trying to get myself into the holiday mode early this year.  I hate shopping in the stores; but like cruising the internet for good deals.  Any suggestions?
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. Well now, isn't your fawn just as cute as a button...sure wish I could catch a shot like that...I need to feed closer to the house, but then there is the I feed at the edge of the woods...
    Love that your family will play more than least once in awhile we get a scrabble game in when Darcie is home, she and Andy are brutal at that game...
    Have a great week sister, dear

  2. I love family times of board games. I was so pleased when my grandson chooses to play board games over pc games when he comes to visit. I think Board games are real memory makers of joy.

    I love your fawn. He's so pretty. I wish I could get closer pictures of the ones that stroll through our yard.
    I got the best smile of the picture of him with a leaf on it's head. Sooo cool!

    Beautiful Blog theme. I love your new color/design theme, very jolly and does put one in the mood for the holiday season.

    I'm not much of a shopper...unless it's with our grandson. :) and then we let him choose what to buy. It's always fun.
    As for other folks, My only suggestion for gifts is if it's for a woman or a teenage girl, you can never go wrong with candles. ;)

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my guardian post. I love the Bible verse, it's wonderful and a comfort to me. I'm blessed to have you as my friend. (((hugs)))

    Wishing you a beautiful week!
