Wonderful Weekend

Happy Monday all!

What a wonderful weekend. The weather was gorgeous here, hope you were lucky enough to have the same. Needless to say, because of the great weather, I did not get much scrapping done. One project for Emma's Paperie which I will be able to share later this week. I will tell you that I used some of the adorable Jenni Bowlin felt birds, cool jounaling tags from Making Memories and delicious ribbon from Melissa Frances. Oh, I had so much fun with this one. :)

We did have a busy weekend, soccer games, yardwork, and a car hop at church. That was fun. Our associate pastor dressed up like Elvis (tight white pants and all!) and even sang a few songs for us with his guitar. :) It is actually a fund raiser for the youth. They all dress up in poodle skirts and the boys in jeans and white Ts. They come to your car and take orders. Everybody brings lawn chairs and sit behind the cars while the kids go play. I was glad to see it was such a huge hit and everyone obviously had a great time.

We did have a chance to relax on Friday night and have game night with the girls. I love doing this. We ordered pizza and just played games until bedtime.





Some of our absolute favorites are Blokus and Zooreka. Zooreka is put out by the Cranium people and one of the girls' favorites. I really like Blokus. It is not only such a great game but it is really good for their logical reasoning skills. That is a picture of it on the bottom. The object is to try and get rid of all your pieces (which is nearly impossible).

Hope you had a great weekend too. Have a wonderful week!

Lisa your girls are beautiful!

We too believe in the importance of playing games as a family. Teaches them a lot of things especially that you find it important to spend time with them. Just last week my hubby and I sat down and played cards with our boys who are 17 and 19. It's hard to make the commitment when there is so much else to distract from being together but it's so worth it!

We are definitely a game family...even now, when it's just Stan and I, we play cribbage :)
Your event at church sounds like a blast!

I just saw blokus for the first time...it looks interesting! I can't wait till our kids are old enough for game night! That will be fun! Ethan is, but Levi would just want to mess everything up!

Ok, we need to get Zooreka. I love all of the Cranium games but don't have this one yet. Glad to see a good review of it. Board games rock! :)
