Our family LOVES games. Games after dinner, games when it’s too cold to go outside, games when it’s too hot to go outside, games at the shore, games while camping, and especially games during winter vacation. We usually go to Ohio to visit family this time of year, and games are a super-fun way for all ages to get involved with play. They make us take a break from whatever holiday madness is happening, and sit down and be present with each other. I hate that I have to remind myself to do this — ugh— but once I do remind myself, I NEVER regret it. Games are especially fun when the person you least likely expect (that would be my ridiculously kind mother-in-law) gets super into the competition, and DESTROYS us all with her sly manipulation and innocent demeanor. She’s going down, though, this year!
