Good Apples, Bad Apples & Downright Funny Apples

Holidays in our family seem to always end up with some game playing. When I first joined the family it was usually Scrabble. We have moved on in the recent years. Lately, we've found ourselves playing Apples to Apples. I know some people LOVE this game. Me? I'm kind of lukewarm. I think it's ok- not the worst game to play but not my first choice either.

However, some of the grandkids are getting old enough to join in and when you play with my nephews it's gets way more entertaining.

For example:

The word is selfish.

I put down Adolf Hitler
I don't know what anyone else put EXCEPT for Spencer (12).

Rosa Parks.....
"She wouldn't give up her seat" he says.

********

A while later the word is Playful.

I don't remember any responses except for Ryan (9, soon to be 10).

His card?

My body.....

Yes, My body.

When Ryan innocently asks "Why's that so funny?"
I tell him to ask Grandma who is laughing harder than anyone else.

Tonight and Tomorrow should bring about some more game playing. Can't wait!

That is so funny. We have been playing it a lot lately too. It's fun when the little kids join and don't understand why everyone else is laughing. Fun Times.

One time we were playing with my family and my sister who was 7 at the time put Helen Keller for the word VISIONARY, she had no clue who Helen Keller was. It was hilarious.

O.k to set the record straight I really did put that one in there one Purpose, I knew it would get a good laugh! We want to play it with Mikes little brothers, we figure we will get some moments like you had, the only difference is that they are 18!! lol.

I love the Rosa Parks comment. That is so funny!
I'm not the hugest fan of this game either. I will play if everyone else wants to, but it is definitely not my first choice either.
