Our friend, Shauna, made the most delicious tortilla soup last night. Not much of a soup fan, I've never tried it before, but I must say that I'm now a big fan! It was a simple tomato based soup to which you add avocado, cheese, and tortilla strips. I had two bowls which was okay since David and Erin didn't eat any. They are such picky eaters!
After dinner we played Wow Cranium. Cranium has been one of our favorite games for a few years and since they added the "Wow" we love it even more. We always play males vs. females, and more often than not the females win. In last nights game, the boys had to do a challenge called side show where one team member uses another team members body to act out silent clues like sherades. The hint was person, and the answer was barista. Seeing the two of them try to act that out was hilarious! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

I really like tortilla soup. :) And Cranium is one of my favorite games--it's one of the few where I get pretty competitive!

How are you feeling?

I love soup, it is one of my favorite things to eat and make.

I got the stuff to make the lemon berry cake tonight. I'll let you know how it turns out.

We love games. Backgammon, Cards, all kinds of games.

Right now we are loving the Wii, Mario Kart, fishing, carnival, tennis, boxing...

games are wonderful.

I grew up playing yahtzee and cards with my grandparents, falling asleep listening to their laughter and late night game play.

Games are the ancient stuff of life relaxed.

Love games AND tortilla soup! I haven't made in in quite a while though, and this makes me think I should! :)

I'm not much of a game player - bad chhildhood experiences (my brothers made everything a blood sport)but we have a silly little dice game that we play almost every night. It is so simple that Emily can play it.
