Its been about three years since Eric and I got together with my brother and sister-in-law to play some cards. Between work, crazy schedules, kids, ect. we could never seem to make it happen. But finally...Diana and I set a date for family game night. Our game of choice? Euchre. And in order to have two free hands to play, we lured Grandma and Grandpa over with some steaks :-) Though to be honest...I don't think they needed much convincing :-)
Here is how Grandma's multi-task...
I wish I could say it was that easy to keep the kids entertained, but Addie wanted some attention from Uncle "Ado" and Aunt "Di Di"too.
But once the kids were finally asleep, it was game time. Adam needed a little refresher course, so here is Professor Eric teaching him the ropes.
And here is Uncle Joe...happy as always to have his picture taken (Copyright 2010...that's for you Joe! :-) And since this is a family blog, I did smear out his hand gesture :-) I'll just tell the kids he was giving a thumbs up.
And like all family events, Howie wanted to join in too. Although, when he realized there was no food on the table...he folded.
Its amazing how long it takes to schedule a night like this, but I sure hope we can do it again soon! Thanks for a fun night gang! And thanks to my two peanuts for sleeping through the game so mommy and daddy could play :-)
