Christmas Day

Well we had a great Christmas Day. We woke up in the morning and opened the presents at mum's house. Then we had a brunch at Gareth's. We then went to the lake and went kyaking and swimming and had a lunch at the lake. The boys played cricket. Then we came back and went to Llewellyn's house and played games all night long. It was a good day with good food and good company.
Mum had a big dinner at her house on Christmas Eve and we played games as well.
My brother's are competitive the say the least and I've never played a game of pictionary like it. It was horrible.
We got the game for Mum and Pete for Christmas. So the next day I forced everyone to play again and this time PLAY NICE or else LOL. We had fun and it ended up being good and now everyone likes it. Mum and Pete also got dominoes and we played that as well. It's an instant hit and the family ask to play it almost every time. They love the mexican line. They asked if there could be two but we stopped it at just the one.
We hope everyone else had a great day as well. Thanks for all your cards and emails. It's great to hear from everyone.

Sounds like a really nice day, and cute pictures. Have you ever played Cranium? If you like Pictionary, you'd probably love Cranium, too.

It looks like you guys are having so much fun! Good luck with everything in NZ. Looking forward to your updates!

Sounds like you had a great time. Glad to hear that you still get to play games. We only played once when Janie and Eric came for dinner. Andrew played dominoes with us. Elisabeth didn't come this year as she was traveling with the CAL band for their bowl game in Texas which they won!

Yeah we've played cranium. You're right, it's a great game.
We play games almost every night. My family love it, they're always keen. I think that might be something Dru misses.

Instead of sledding, you Kayak on the lake, it sounds like so much fun~ Our family had an uber competitive game of sharades, I wonder if it was at all similar to your family's version of pictionary? We also had fun with games and such, Riley made an awesome omlet for breakfast at our own home and we joined the family later. I made Milly a gimi gown (spinning dress) and Rawl a town he could drive cars around and stuff, a precious day too, it was so fun to read about yours!
