Games before bed...


Last fall on Sunday night we sort of got into this routine to playing Monopoly. Jaxon really loves to play and it is hard when Mason is so busy to really focus on the rules of the game....but he is REALLY good at it...(is there a professional Monopoly group that meets after school)? Kidding of course. We have the "Here and Now" edition which means that there is no thimble, or car..instead we have a Starbucks coffee cup, a razr phone, a jet plane....ect.

Also, you do not have Park Place and St. James...instead you buy places like Yankee Stadium and The Empire State building. We don't deal with dollars here...everything is thousands and hundred thousands. Man how the game has changed from when we were kids...what was wrong with our version?

I just thought I would share a little family tradition to get back into...TV off, no phone calls and a little quality time that is much needed.

I want to play! Sounds like fun. I am forever telling Andy to turn off the darn tv. It's not so bad in the summer but now football has started and that means all tv all the time. Urg.....

My kids love that game too, but we have the kids version. Very fun as well. Remember how long our games would last. Good Lord...Monopoly could go on for days if you let it. Thank God they have simplified the rules & we can enjoy a game in about an hour now. Nice post!
