Game Night and Movie

One of the things I love about being a Latter Day Saint, are the ward functions. We have a particularly lovely ward and our date was going to be attending the ward BBQ. However, things did not go as planned...again. As the time to leave drew closer, the weather got worse. I looked out our window to see this.

It was raining. Not just sprinkling either. I mean it was raining. It made me a little concerned for hubby too. He was not back from class yet and we do not have a car at the moment (it's in the shop). I opened the front door to see if I could see him emerging from the trees.

The picture doesn't do it justice. It was raining so hard! (Notice our empty car spot) When he did get home, he was completely soaked to the skin.

I really need to work on my photography skills. This picture doesn't do it justice either... Anyway, there went our plans for walking to the BBQ. Lets see, rain, wind, severe weather alerts for our area with the tornadoes heading our way and no car? I don't think so. Time for plan B. Game night at home! It turns out that staying at home was the best option for us anyway. Sweet B had had a low fever start the night before and had looked like this all day.

For a little girl who is all smiles, a face like this means she really isn't feeling well.

First, we pulled out the Uno cards. For those of you with kids, you know that playing any games at all, let alone cards can be difficult. That's why we gave the little one her own card so she could feel included. Within 2 seconds flat it was here.

Surprised? Me neither. I wish I could say it ended the evening looking like this.

But no. This was a before photo. The after photo wasn't possible. Its in too many pieces in the trash at the moment.

Next, we decided to move onto a board game. By the way, I won our 9 rounds 5-4. I totally rock at that game. We put the little one in bed for some much needed rest and pulled out monopoly.

We didn't last too long. Still fun though. I'm pretty sure I won that too.

And to end the evening, a movie. We decided on Alias Jesse James.

What can I say? We love Bob Hope! I would let you know how it was, but I fell asleep before it was over. What I did see I liked.
Even though our plans were foiled again, we still had a good date night. Whats better than playing with your spouse and watching a movie together while eating nutella by the spoonful? It was just us and I loved it! No babysitter, no money spent, no problem.
