My family loves to play games.
Here's the game I'm bringing to Thanksgiving this year!
It's like Bingo, but with things that will make you laugh and wince at the same time. In case you can't read them (I know the lettering is small, but it's easier at the Milko site) some of the bingo spots are:
Help Dry Dishes
Go for a Walk
Test Grandpa's Patience
...and the list goes on.
I think it's hilarious! And it's all going to happen either way. Might as well get it all out there, right? I'll just let everyone print their own cards, and have at it.
I love it when my family gets together, but it's exhausting. It's not that we're all that crazy. (Present company excepted, of course) We're just a LOT of people. We like to do everything together, and we like to keep very busy.. All 35 of us.
This year, my brother who is the organizer extraordinaire, is having us all over to his house in the country, where he has has all kinds of things planned:
Our own Turkey Trot 5K
Family Turkey Bowl
trail runs and hikes
games (rock band, anyone?)
BYU game in high def
and of course a HUGE dinner. Probably more than one.
He even hooked up his old oven in his garage so he can cook 2 turkeys at a time.
(is my sister-in-law a saint? why yes, yes she is!)
See, the thing is, we're in denial about how big we are. It just doesn't really occur to anyone that if you take 35 people to the movie theater, we are probably not going to be able to sit together.And then we're all totally annoyed through the whole movie, which completely cracks me up.
My family is SO excited to go!
Anyway, I thought you might like to have the link and the idea for your own Thanksgiving this year!
You're Welcome, and uh, good luck!
