Scenes From Christmas, Part 2: Puzzles and Games

Puzzles and games are always a part of our holiday festivities, and have been for as long as I can remember. As a small child I remember overhearing the laughter that would echo from my Gangy’s kitchen table as the adults played games. As years passed, the kids would linger around that table, watching and learning, and eventually joining in on the fun. Playing games has generated some of my favorite holiday memories.puzzle

And it never fails that someone [usually my brother, ok always my brother] purposefully ends up with food on his face or teeth and laughter ensues. Then, sadly, more of us follow suit. [ Did I mention that we’re pretty punch drunk at this point?] bro And just so my family won’t hate me for posting embarrassing pictures of them on the web…game5 I might regret this later. Oh well. We had fun.
