The Murder Brought Us Together

The noise of Woody dancing on the hardwood is deafening.

The dogs need out. Again.

Dinner is in the oven, and yet the kids are raiding the fridge. It takes a vigilant watch to keep them hungry enough to eat with the family.

The dog hair is covering all of Micah's toys, and I just vacuumed three hours ago.

The phone rings amidst the chaos.

The laundry, the dinner cleanup, the homework. Teenage stupidity, tween attitude on steriods, signing a teacher's verbal warning slip. (Oy vey.)

Playing a board game with the dishwasher and Micah as background noise is a game in patience and endurance.

Seeing the kids all play together and laugh with each other rather than at each other is priceless. There's something to be said for family game night. After the end of a long day of trials of various sorts, who would have thought that figuring out who killed whom and with what would be the uniting factor?

Thank goodness you meant the game! I was a bit worried when I read the title of this post!

That's awesome that you can have a family game night, ours tend to turn into brawls. :-)
