All you really have to do is get family together

for entertainment.  I believe that several minute to minute happenings in my 3 days of Christmas could more than likely keep a movie audience enthralled for a year…Just the scenarios…not necessarily the events themselves.  I’m sure it is true in every family gathering…some stories or things that happen become the lore of many Christmas to come – passing down from generation to generation.  While I want to belly laugh my way thru some of these stories right now – I know that it would not be appropriate because what happens at Christmas needs to stay with Christmas…but a few stories may squeeze out to some of you privately.  I share/you share because after awhile you want to hear other family stories so you won’t fear your Christmas get-togethers with your family in the future. :0 you know what I’m talking about!

I really hope Candyland is still a popular children’s game.  I had a fleeting memory yesterday of the many hours my dad spent playing candyland with me when I was a kid and I want to play the game with Jaxon.

As I see the clean Christmas dishes sitting on the counter, I am trying to figure out what to do with them this year.  The boxes they came in 10 years ago are becoming tattered..still have good padding though??  I am so not the person who should be responsible for putting them away…I received very little of the attention-to-detail gene.

I don’t know what we are going to do today to entertain ourselves..the Christmas let down.  I hope you all felt a little love this holiday season to get you thru the next few months of winter!  That and be sure to run some of those family stories around in your brain to cement them so you don’t forget them…

Until next time….

  1. I used to cheat at Rummy too when playing my grandfather. I could always see his cards reflected in his glasses. Always knew what not to discard. He never knew.

    Cheating is just more fun than actually playing the game and depending on chance. It requires stealth and planning. It sharpens the mind. It’s less boring.


  2. I used to cheat at Candy Land. I would stack the cards. I could win in two or three moves. I enjoyed the look of shock on my opponent’s face. Adults would be amazed that I would do such a thing and other children would go about saying how lucky I was. No one knew what they were up against. It’s good that I’m reformed now.
