Oh My Goodness! I have 100 followers! Yipeee!!!

Thanks to all of you who have chosen to follow me on my blog!  I can't believe I already have 100 followers!!  How cool is that??  I would love to get suggestions from you as to how I can improve on my blog.  My intent was to create something to keep the family together by giving suggestions on how to plan one night a week to spend with the family no matter how big or small the family is.  Also, keep the communication alive.  I have a tendency to keep things inside and the nights we have planned with our family has allowed me to open up a lot more.  In these tough times (even though they say the economy is getting better...yeah, right...what about the jobs???  Where are they??  Alright I'll get off my soapbox...) it is vital to keep the family together.

Okay we have a new game to love in our house!!! JENGA!!

Jenga is the best game! Thank you Hasbro for introducing it to our family!

My 4 year old, Phoebe, absolutely loves it! I gave it as a gift to a 7 year old and she went bonkers! My 2 1/2 year old, Owen loves it, not to play but to build things with (he is our little engineer, loves to see how things work!! I thought I'd add this cute pic of my little red headed cutie patooootie head!)

They say it is a game for 6 years and older, but, Phoebe plays with no problem, can set it up with no problem. Really, I think it is for all ages!

Basically the objective of the game is to take as many blocks out of the tower as you can each piece you successfully take out without knocking over the tower is put back on the top. Phoebe says if you knock over the tower though you have to yell "JENGA".

Here are the official rules:

The object of Jenga is to remove one block from the Jenga tower and then stack it on top. The last player to stack a block without making the tower fall wins the game.

Jenga consists of 54 hardwood blocks.

Why not introduce this game to your family game night? I'm sure glad we did!
