If You’re going to play family games, be prepared for the consequences…

I might blog every day this week – there have been so many great things this Christmas weekend.

Tonight, however, I shall share with you our funny faux-pas courtesy of




(for those of you who haven’t played the game the gist is the judge places a word on the table and everyone else choose a word from their hand that best fits – the judge decides which one wins)



card accidentally played by our daughter:


(hopefully there was no secret meaning there)



The card I couldn’t resist playing that none of the kids understood:

My Lovelife

(my hubby laughed insanely – trying to decide how I should take that one – ha ha)



it came down to two choices:

Barbed Wire



Barbed Wire won

and finally, the icing on the cake, so to say…

the word was, well, I don’t even remember actually. The card that won was The Mississippi River and I guffawed and Paul was saying something about Nauvoo being along the Mississippi River to which Em says:

“What’s Nauvoo?”

Dot, full of big sisterly wisdom and love replies,

“That place in Star Wars, Du-uh!”

To which Dad and I reply,

“Uh, Honey, that was Naboo….”

    Kids do say the darndest things! Apples to Apples is one of our kids favorites, although we really like the Apples to Apples Jr we borrowed from my sister, it had a few more words my 8 yr old could understand. I was trying to find it for Christmas and found the Disney one instead and that’s been a BIG hit since it has pictures, even my non-reader feels like he knows what cards he’s playing. Thanks for sharing your funny story 🙂 Hope you’ve enjoyed the rest of your week with the family!

    We have that game. It’s a great activity to occupy the “extended family” after the meal is done. Of course, I might just be saying that because I won the last time we played. 🙂
