What a week! We survived it all, even with a power outage today at my parents’ place. We warmed ourselves with a roaring fire, hilariously named hard cider and board games by candle light.
It turned out to be a incredibly lovely and memorable day.
(I also got everyone to play Balderdash! Hooray!)

I hope your season has been filled with family, friends, food and all the things that make you happy!

Last night we got together for an early Hanukkah celebration with the husband’s family. It’s so fun having so many new traditions! Although, there was a little bit too much pre-dinner noshing, and we ended up too full and lazy to make latkes (oops!). This year, we decided to incorporate games into the mix and Scattergories made the first cut.

I am terrible at this game, but still absolutely love it. My all time favorite is Balderdash, another word game, where you get to make up word definitions and try to figure out which one is real. It can get very silly! I’m hoping to introduce it at the next family event, if I can ever tear my immediate family away from their dear, dear love of Apples to Apples (always fun, always a big hit).

What’s your favorite game to play with friends and loved ones?
