Week 17: Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  

This year was not much different from past years. We traveled to visit family, stayed in a hotel, ate an exorbitant amount of food, and enjoyed the company of family. Since it was Oliver's first Thanksgiving, I wasn't sure how he would behave. He had opinions. He didn't like it. It was too loud.

Instilling a Thankful Heart

When I was a kid, Hook was one of my go-to movie choices to watch when I was up all night. (Jumanjiwas the other choice, but that has no merit to my thoughts today, besides letting you know I have awesome taste.) One of the scenes in it was of Captain Hook talking to Peter Banning’s kids, trying to get them to love him instead. As a child, it was just a scene. When I watched the movie as an adult with my own children, the scene hit me in a different way.

Chara Games Review

Commissioned {Chara Games}

We love playing games here, so I was excited to add Commissioned from Chara Games to our family game night selection. Commissioned is a historical and Biblical deck building game about the Acts of the Apostles; however, you do not need to be a Christian or know anything about Christianity or the Bible to play it! Players are early Christian apostles and work together to collect books of the New Testament, grow the people in the church, gain more faith, and overcome trials each round.
