My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

Wow, another month passed without picking up my camera once! We did continue to enjoy tons of games, though...

We finally added in the Giants Expansion to our Kingdomino game...

Our friends moved back up to our neck of the woods (yay!), so we were able to more easily meet up with them at our favorite park...

I'd given G this cool Exit game for our anniversary with the idea that it could be for a date night, but Gv wanted to play it so badly that we just turned it into a family date...

We got home from church and by the time we'd changed our clothes, Gv surprised us with donuts!


And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

I couldn't believe it, but I didn't take a single photo with my camera all month! I knew things were boring around here due to Covid, but geez, that's just crazy!

One thing we did do a lot of was play games. LOTS of games. And I actually do have photos of those, because I document all our game-playing with my phone to stick on Gv's SeeSaw portfolio that I set up (because games totally count as school!)

Here are a few of the games we've been playing the most lately:

Catan Dice - which is in the same "world" as the regular game, but also totally different, so they are both worth having.

Munchkin (although, be warned: your family will totally gang up on you!)

Trekking the Parks - this is probably our current favorite, seeing how we've played it at least once every single weekend for the past two months!

Carcassonne - We got the Big Box full of a bazillion expansions and we still have like five or six we haven't incorporated yet. I highly recommend the bazillion expansions, as they add SO MUCH more fun to the game!

Parks - I am still totally in love with this game. It's just so pretty and loads of fun and we've probably played it almost as much as the other one. 


Besides these, Gv usually asks to play Sleeping Queens or Kingdomino, Final Touch has been a fun new addition, Cat Crimes has turned out to be fun for all of us (one at a time), and we continue to enjoy lots of Dragonwood, Dutch Blitz, Mancala and Sushi Go. We also usually play at least one game from outside this list each weekend and those are always fun, too -- except for a recent game of Upwords that is about to join the "giveaway" pile because we all basically wanted to get the game over with immediately after we started playing it.

Edited to add that I don't think it'll be going in the giveaway pile after all, because I just noticed that my 1983 edition is worth a ton of money now! 😲

And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

Gv makes a Christmas craft or ornament for a gift each year and we always integrate a current photo into it somehow. Here's this year's photo:


Speaking of ornament/craft gifts, here she is working away at them in Santa's workshop:




We spent our anniversary hiking around the park where we got married. Here's a photo of us all together at the precise location where it all happened:



We've had this game on our wish list for what seems like forever and Grammy & Papa got it for her. I don't know which one of us is most excited over having it, though, and it is the most gorgeous and cool game ever! Grab one for yourself here!

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:


Our out-of-town friends stayed a bit into November, so we got a bonus day together to explore a new park! Gv & the boys built a palm bridge across a stream so they could explore the other side (don't worry, they put everything back how it was when they were done.)
   


Welcome to FL weather, where we don't get seasons, but only occasional doses of "non-summer." This is one example, where the day before saw temps in the high 80s, but some freak front came through (thanks Eta!) overnight that warranted this get-up just to let the dog out in the freezing morning chill.

And yes, this was a short-lived front, which meant we had the A/C blasting again the next day.



Amidst all the craziness that was life in this country on Election Day, we experienced a much calmer voting scenario over here, where we voted for which family game to play together that night.



Eta cancelled two days of school (everyone suddenly had to go virtual), but wasn't expected to impact our area too badly. It didn't, but still managed to knock down a couple sections of our fence, which Gv and G worked hard to repair.



After two days of nonstop cooking for our just-the-3-of-us Thanksgiving, I got to take a break while Gv made the desserts. She made pumpkin pie and my yummy Pecan Pie Bites, which all turned out delicious!

And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:


I about had a heart attack when I realized that Gv was up there on the roof with G and helping to sweep the leaves off, but she sure thought it was great fun!


We really enjoyed doing art lessons with Julie from Soul Sparklettes Art this month. Check out her Glitter Bombs for tons of fun projects!


G used his intrepid deal-finding skills to score us a free gift card for Amazon on Prime Day! We used it to make Christmas come early and got this super-fun game that had been on our wish list!



Our out-of-town friends didn't let Covid keep them away from their annual trip down and the kids didn't let masking-up keep them from having fun, either!

   
And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?
