The Legend Continues // Game Night

Starting in the lower left corner and going clockwise...
Joseph, John, Seth, myself, Bonnie (in my lap;), Hank, Kimball, David, Cody's knees, and Michelle.  Not pictured are Alex, Rachel, Laura, and the rest of Cody.

iPhone photos...gotta love 'em.  Especially when they're of game night.  Our game nights are legendary...just sayin' it because it's true.  We have way more fun than people should be allowed to have.  There's laughter, inside jokes, excellent conversations, and of course, games.  And very often, spontaneous adventures which  typically include glow sticks, golf clubs, bonfires, and sometimes late night trips to town to buy Pringles.  
Because we had to have Pringles.

This night included a phone call to Kellie, who was out of town at the time.  We put her on speaker.  Imagine, if you will, twelve people talking at once and trying to hear what Kellie is saying above that. 

Twelve player Apples to Apples is interesting to say the least. *grin*  David and Alex pretty much stole the show, making up stories using all of the names and objects listed on the cards.  Vastly entertaining.  If you don't leave with a stomach ache from laughing until you cry, you're doing it wrong.

Thanks to Joseph and Laura for chronicling our evening in pictures. :)  

Happy Trails!


  1. How cool is this?! Here in my town we also have game nights which normally do include Apples to Apples, Settlers of Catan, Dutch Blitz, etc.

    But the best thing is to be surrounded by people who love the Lord as much as you do. And knowing that all of you are on a journey through life to bring glory to God is just so... amazing. :)

  2. Aw, I love it! I missed being there so, so much - but getting to be there in spirit and talk to you all on the phone was definitely the next best thing. It made me feel special:)

    Imagine, if you will, trying to hear what twelve people who are all talking at once are saying... ah, but the Happy Birthday serenade was loud and clear. And random. And excellent.

    Can't wait for the next one!

  3. What fun! If only I lived closer... sigh.:)

  4. Gosh, game night at your house looks like the place to be! I have been hearing more and more about the game Apples to Apples and now you have peaked my interest. Question.. can old people play it with the same results??

    I am thinking of getting the game for when the family is here at Christmas!

  5. Looks like you all had a wonderful time! It is always fun to get together with friends! :)
    I would love to know how you and Kellie are friends.I just started following her blog and am ever so inspired by it!

  6. Your games nights sound pretty awesome! Every time you post something about it it makes me wish I could join in. And it sound like you have a great group of friends as well!

  7. We are awesome. And game nights are epic :).

  8. Sincerity - Hello there:) Sounds like your game nights are just as fantastic as ours are...well, almost;)
    Yes indeed, I am so so blessed to have such wonderful friends who share my faith!

    Kellie - Hehe, I can only imagine. That Happy Birthday was epic...and completely random. ;D

    Maria - I so wish that you lived closer so you could come!

    Winnie - I think so;) Apples to Apples is a very fun game and I'm sure you're family would love it:) You should go through the cards first though and set aside any inappropriate ones.

    Cassie - How Kellie and I are friends...well, that's quite a long story. I'm writing a blog post about it, just for you:)

    Sereina - It would be amazing if you could join in! I do have a great group of friends.

    Michelle - We are soooo awesome! :D
