Thanksgiving, Games and Puzzles



Thanksgiving is upon us.  I love this holiday.  It's a time to just be together as a family, large or small.  I am hoping to have my parents come up from Utah (we're praying for good weather!).  We'll also be having J's mom and one of his brother's up for dinner that day.  I just love the warmth, the laughter, the food, and the togetherness of this week.  I also appreciate taking a moment to discover (or rediscover) the things we have to be grateful for!

I found this great Thanksgiving Game we will be using to start off this week of family time and gratitude.

It is also National Games and Puzzles week.  I've shared some of our favorite games here and here before.  Here are some new ones we love and will be spending some time on this week!

We played this one with some friends in Richland just before we moved.  I knew I had to get it, so it became J's Father's Day gift this year.  We're still not tired of it!

I think we found this at a yard sale, I can't remember.  It's a fun family game.  We like to use our own family pictures.  Great for stirring up  memories and making laughs!

J heard about this one from a friend at work.  It's a great mix between fun party game and strategy.  Great one for the whole family.

I know we all remember this one from childhood.  I have been waiting and waiting (not too patiently) for my kids to be old enough to play this game with me.  We have had some fun nights with this one! It's a classic!

Those are my game highlights for this season.

Enjoy your family time this week!  Travel safely if you are traveling.  Love that yummy food!  And be grateful for all the blessings you have been given!


Happy Thanksgiving!
