Family Game Day~Mosaic Monday


Hanging out, waiting for cookies, playing some old-fashioned board games and some new-fashioned i-pod games, just enjoying the day...


As you can see, someone is really going to have to get back on top of the ladder...

Linking to Mosaic Monday at Mary's Little Red House.

  1. I loved board games as a kid.....and cookies, too! Looks like a delightful afternoon in your home.

    Hubby is improving and you were right; I am posting again after only a short break.

    Speaking of ladders, I've been on one cleaning cobwebs off of light fixtures this weekend!

    Have a good evening, Vee.

  2. Board games were fun growing up and I keep a stash of them for the young and old grands. Of course they have introduced grandma to Angry Birds too.

  5. I LOOOOVE family game day - we do game night - but haven't in way too long (discounting Thanksgiving when the cook and cleaner can't really stop to play much!)

    You sure have a sweet family, Vee!

    Ugh. I have one for ya: talk about having to get the ladder back out and "fix," I heard all sorts of commotion to find my husband rewiring the lights on the top part of the tree that went out.

    I am so blessed. He is so good to me- I could never EVER have reached that or easily have done that like his strength and super long arms could.

    Hugs and have a blessed Sunday, my friend!!

    PS I agree with Penny, it DOES look like a Norman Rockwell Christmas!

  6. Judith, if you can play Angry Birds with any semblance of patience and not become an angry bird yourself you get the award.

    I absolutely hate that silly game, I am the worst and have ZERO patience to play it. Bless your heart!! ~Michele

  10. Yes, your home is so very cozy and warm. And I forgot to mention about your header, I LOVE the smoke in the shape of the Letter V from the candle! That is amazing. And that you captured it!! What a photographer. xo

  11. Looks like you got a lot of your decorating done - good for you! I love board games and especially the old ones. Have yet to learn how to play I-pod ones - maybe someday when I have a grand or two they will teach me?? Christmas is such a wonderful time for games - we love to play Rook and Dominos.

  16. I am just finishing up making all the gift so yes it is time to decorate. More that just a poinsettia I think.

  17. IT looks warm and cheery in your house playing games at your table. And your tree is so pretty. Our angel is missing after last year, I think it totally collapse and had to go away. And of course we can't find anything like the old one, though a replica of yours would do!

    Have a great week!

  24. Games, cookies, lights, and I'll bet there was Christmas music playing softly in the background. What a fun way to spend an afternoon. How is Sam doing after his surgery?

  27. Hi Vee - I love these pics of the grands and John. We used to have board games with our kids and they were so fun. So much better than plopping down in front of the TV. These are great! Hope you have a great week...
