During our Family Home Evening tonight we played Chutes and Ladders. This is a game where someone gets close to the winning square at the top of the board and then lands on a square with a slide and ends up back at the bottom of the board. To make matters worse, Eleanor likes to move all our characters around (it's a sesame street version), so we never know what square we are actually on. Matt was near the winning square for awhile, but then he slid close to the bottom, and then Emily was close, but she slid down a few times. Emily finally won and Matt and I let out a big, "YAY!!!" It was finally over.
My sister, Donna and her family are visiting for the week. Here we are at Governor's about to enjoy a delicious lunch. I had low expectations for this picture. I just wanted everyone facing the camera, smiles or no smiles, just face the camera. We are just so happy to be together, the smiles were already there :-)
We'll forgive Zach for his lack of cooperation...this time!
