Focus on Family: Family Game Night

Focus on Family
 by Kelly Caldwell


My family has always been a competitive group… It doesn’t matter the contest, Hungry, Hungry Hippos, Taboo, Texas Hold ‘em...We always play to win. 

Even now as adults we still break out the cards or a board game when we are together for an extended period of time. 

Over the holidays we were introduced to a new game called Mexican Dominoes and played for hours with our extended family… And while its not necessary, smack talk is prevalent in our house from the 5 year old all the way to the soon to be 60 year old. 

Yes we like to win, but as we have gotten older it’s just as important spending time together as a family.
The winter months lend themselves to more game night opportunities because its cold and you can’t be outside as much. 

So embrace your inner child and dig out some games… Or you can make up your own… (We even have a download to get you started) We promise it will be a night you won’t likely forget. 

Also please send us pictures of your family game nights this winter and we will post them on our website. You can email them to news@lakewedoweelife.com. 

We want to get back to basics in 2013 so there will be more family-centric articles in the issues to come. From planning a graduation party to having fun on Lake Wedowee, we plan to celebrate our family this year and we encourage you to do the same!
