Dan's dilly bread, in the making. It was some intensely STICKY dough! It turned out SO good, though!
All over his hands! Please DON'T touch me!
I have no idea what I'm chopping in this picture...maybe onions? At least I'm wearing a cute apron!
But sometimes (a lot of times), we just need a break to do something else. We often choose playing a game over anything else (although we got a huge collections of really old cartoons, like Popeye, Superman, Felix the cat, at the dollar store, and they are pretty fun to watch for a quick break). But, as far as games go, we have a bit of a dilemma. We don't have many 2 player games to play, just the two of us. We have Uno, but that isn't much fun with two people. We have Phase 10, but trust me, it gets old after a while. And for Daniel, it's too much of a game of chance, which is not his thing. Then, there's Canasta, which we really like...but when we play together, with only us and no one else, it makes our blood boil. So we decided that we probably shouldn't play that one...if only for the sake of our marriage. And that leaves us with...
(Dan doesn't look too happy in this photo! I think I'm beating him in this one. We got through phases...sometimes I go through, like, a week of whomping him, but then I know, in about a week or two, the tables will turn. They always do!)
So, Daniel and I play A LOT of skip-bo. And we really enjoy it! But the danger with us playing A LOT of skip-bo is that someday, we are going to get really tired of skip-bo...and then where would we be? And so, dear friends, if you have any suggestions of some really great 2 player games...

About a week ago, we carved pumpkins for Family Home Evening. We put on a chick flic (Dan's a really good sport) and carved the pumpkins we got at the pumpkin patch. The little one we didn't carve...he's really deformed. Maybe we should've made a quasimodo jack.
