Learning new things...

Dave just reminded me I had to blog that Luey learned a bunch of new games while we were away, and we are definitely in the "Age of Games" now with both the bigger boys... Luey now can play Snap, Fish and an Icelandic card game called "langavitlausa" (loosely translated that means "long nonesense"... For the last game you divide the pack of 52 playing cards between two players, then each play places a card face up on the table at the same time. The player with the higher value card then "takes" both the cards on the table... If the cards places on the table have the same value (say two eights or two Jacks), then a "battle" ensues, another card is placed face down over the first card (by each player) and then a new card is placed face up, and the player with the higher value card facing up "takes" all six cards...

The game continues until one player has "taken" the whole deck.

WARNING: this game CAN go on for ages...




Today, I had the pleasure of going over to Beck's for a day of scrapbooking... I "sort of" did four pages!!! By "sort of", I mean, a) they're not all finished yet, b) they're very, very simple (because, hey, this is only my second attempt EVER), c) they rely heavily on kits a paper I bought at the Reject Shop yesterday, LOL...

I REALLY enjoyed doing this, and it's definitely something I want to keep doing...
