My daughter and her husband came to visit us this week-end. Oh it was such a joy-filled time! The week-end was filled with games and laughter and fun foods. I never cease to be delighted in how well our children get along together. They were close friends as children and are great friends as teens and adults. Not that we haven’t had our seasons of fractious relationships. Some children were on the bossy side and others a bit cantankerous during stages of their lives. But our get togethers are always such fun.
We play online games (this week-end it was Family Feud on Facebook), board games (we played Once Upon a Time) and card games (Mao is one of their favorites). We make up stories, we play songs and sing, we take quizzes. There are no end to the ways we find to entertain ourselves. Again, I am so thankful to the Lord for the delightful children He has given to me and for the wonderful times our family has together.
What are some of the special things you do when your family gets together? Favorite games? Favorite foods and past times?
