When Sally spent the night a while back, we played some games-I love games, we have a lot of them but I’m pretty competitive (I know that is shocking to some of you!), and just a little impatient (even more shocking, I know).  Anyway, Sally said that one year she bought everyone in her family their own Scrabble dictionary and allowed them all to use the dictionary to learn and teach each other new words.  I thought it was a brilliant idea, until Kelly pointed out that it would take an excruciatingly long time for each kid to take their turn and he wisely knew I would “lose my mind” waiting.  So, he suggested, we do it as Sally suggested but leave it on the Dining room table (which is rarely used for dining) and you can take your turn whenever you have time to.  He’s so smart, isn’t he!

So, that’s what we did-some pretty cool words there!

Kelly/Tobin won by a lot and Marian beat me by 1 point (the competitive side of me must tell you that we helped her and Ezra find words).

She was happy to beat me though;)


kudos on the use of CRUX. I hate the C (don’t really know why). But I do love SCRABBLE. Enjoy each other on the holidays!
