    Favorite Family Board Games

    We’ve acquired quite a collection of board games over the years. They make a great gift for a birthday or holiday and there’s always new ones coming out. Of course some are better than others and today I’m sharing the ones we reach for over and over again.

    Ben’s 11th Birthday!

    The boy who made me a mom turned 11 last week and we’ve spent the last several days celebrating him. We started Ben’s actual birthday with singing and a birthday donut before a 1/2 day of school. The boys’ school had a planned early out day so we headed to lunch at Fuzzy’s followed by a small family celebration that night at home.

    Jack’s 6th Birthday

    On Friday our sweet Jack turned six. I’ve talked about my anxiety with each passing birthday and this one was no different. I really tried to soak in all the little moments instead of feeling sad that time is going so quickly.

    Happy 4th Birthday, Jack!

    Sweet Jack. My last baby and you’re already turning four. For some reason, you turning four is a hard one for me. Your dad and I always say that if all our future children could have your temperament you would have twelve more siblings.
