Scooter "plays" Scrabble with my mother-in-law now. Mostly he picks out the tiles he wants and makes fun words, but they have a great time doing it.

We keep talking about setting up a game night for the family, and there are a couple of games on Scooter's holiday wish list (for a break from the Legos).

Have you seen that new Monopoly game--the one where you build skyscrapers as you play? I already have plans to get this for L., who would love it!

Bill just picked up a vintage copy of Mille Bornes for us to play with the kids last week!

I do envy all of the family game time you had growing up. I was an only child until I was 15, and my parents were never in the mood for long board games, so actually getting to play Monopoly was a rare treat.

I had two other siblings growing up, so that definitely helped, and we were often encouraged to play together, so we often had to, whether we always felt like it or not! I think that was what was so neat about my uncle--he was one of those grownups who always put down his work to play with the kids!
