after we dyed eggs, all of the kids wanted to come spend the night at my house. kami came too and brought this super fun game called carcassonne. all though i was REALLY tired, she talked me into joining a game that she was playing with isabel. i LOVED it!! i think we all ended up staying awake until about 1am. (pretty late for a school night i'd say...but completly worth it. some times you just have to sleep in and & skip school for the greater good, like family activities) i'm a huge nerdy fan of board games, like risk and it totally reminded me of risk but easier and more mellow. i'm always trying to round up enough people to play a board game during the holidays and long weekends. usually with no luck. :( anyway, this game was a blast. merv was out of town that night but i told him he has to have kami teach him to play this weekend. (i'm still a little unsure of the rules...)thanks marnie for introducing carcassonne to kami!!
"mama, can i PLEEEEEEASE play too?" poor cody REALLY wanted to play. watching the enchanted movie with makaela & brinley wasn't cutting it for him. (he's not really into princesses... ) so he helped me instead and we let him pretend play with the extras pieces. i felt bad. i think next time i'll let him play for real, even if he doesn't understand all of the rules.
kami just ended up staying the night during for our sleepover. so she got some cuddle time in with the extra cuddley cody, during cartoons. he has always been such a sweet cozy bug. i have to take advantage of it while he's small cause i don't know if he will feel the same way in a few years. :(
