Funny James

Last night, James did something incredible and actually offered to play a game with Allison and me. True, he tried to rescind his offer, but it was too late. So we settled down at the kitchen table to play Pictionary. How do you play Pictionary with three people, you ask? Well, everyone is on everyone's team. Trust me, it's the best way to play.

The Pictionary game that we own is one that I found at D.I. It has all the cards and the gameboard and even a timer-- but no game pieces. So, being the incredibly clever person that I am, I found a quick solution by grabbing the three kings from our nativity set to act as game pieces. During game play, James demonstrated significant prowess at drawing and eliciting guesses from Allison and myself, which quickly got him several blocks ahead of the two of us.

At one point he took his little king, turned it around to face our pieces and said in a taunting voice, "Ha, ha, I'm going to see the baby Jesus before you!"

There it is folks, the spirit of the season! :) Only 18 days to go!

*edit: James reminded me that I neglected to mention that he did in fact win. So, I guess technically, his king had the honor of seeing the baby Jesus first. A whole new way of looking at the nativity.
