Put It On The Board

(I don't know what that means, but my brother and husband said it repeatedly.)

We had a great Thanksgiving. I hope you did, too. We had a small group, just my family: five boys and seven adults. I made Night Before Mashed Potatoes, and a cherry pie. BFJ made the turkey and stuffing! Everyone brought something, and so on.

The highlight of the evening was the board game,
Wise and Otherwise. We did not have enough game tokens for everyone to play so my sister-in-law drew herself on a pistachio shell. We present: Nutalie:

We've had this game for years, longer than kids, but haven't played in awhile. We had so much fun, one of the boys who's just learning to read joined in. We should play it more often; it reduces people to tears. Here's proof:

I'm thankful for my family, my home, my salvation, friends who knit, friends in general, little boys with dirty faces, and a husband who shares his quilt.

Looks like a great time!

I've not heard of that game, but we get the same reaction from "Apples to Apples"!

Nutalie is very unique, wouldn't you say? Looks like a blast! Your cherry pie is beautiful, Karen! And I'd love your recipe for Night Before Mashed Potatoes! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving! Cheers!

Sounds like a wonderful time! We love board games here so I am going to have to see if I can find that one! Our game of choice is usually Monopoly or Trivia Pursuit.
