Never a dull moment!!

That sick bug seriously just won't leave our house. Barrett was down for most of the day zonked out on the couch. That left his poor side kick completely LOST!! I promised Alexander a game of Blockus. Everything was going so well. . .Easy concept. . .your pieces have to "KISS" your pieces. See pieces "kiss!!"

.. . . Not "HUG!" Easy concept. . .See pieces "Hug!"

Everything was going so well. . . .fun. . and peaceful. . .until. . .we started "trapping." The pieces started getting a little close. The beast came out. . .
BEAST!!! Who knew being competitive started at age 3!!! Well it does! At least at our house!

"I go here!!" demanded the "Beast" "I trap Mom and Xander!"
"Well". . . I said. . "little Missy I like the way you think but you aren't huggin' or kissin' any of your pieces!!

"Fine. . .I go here!!"

"I said I trap you and Xander. . . " Said beast! "I GO HERE!!!"

"I said. . . I GO HERE!!"

Screaming way too loud. . ."HERE!!!"

"Ok I kiss!!" Alexander and I are thinking. . . .FINALLY!!

Pretty happy about her "kiss" until. . .

Alexander sees the perfect, "Trap!"

"Ahhhhhhh. . .. ."

"You can't trap ME!"

"You go. . ."

"HERE!"

The princess wins again!!!

I agree with Libbie, it looks way confusing! I wanted to actually buy it but hummm...maybe not! It was definitely worth breaking away from 24 to check it out! Those kiddos always bring a smile to my face. Love love love them!

That is the funniest...ever! Oh my.. Jacq is the best. Mylie and Jacq definitely are related. Those faces?! Oh my.. love them... love her... love the "play-by-play" action. Get your gang better so we can play!

Oh My, that all looks way too familiar from our house! We love cute pouty faces but mostly when they are gone :)

Love this game.

Love how you captured your little ones - you are going to have WAY too much ammunition when it comes to dating or even those wedding reception slide shows!!!
