Last night Allison and I took a quick run to the store to get dinner. I don’t know what it is about the holiday’s but this whole week we have not had a thing in the house and have either gone out to dinner or picked up something and brought it home. So, last night we decided to go to the store to pick up something to cook for dinner.
We were going to pick up something to make for tonight’s dessert for Christmas Eve with my parents and Tara, Erik and Shelby. We decided on Chocolate cake and we had all the ingredients for it at the house, a fact we realized again while we were at the store. So we picked up two Stuffies. Stuffies are stuffed clams or quahogs for those outside of New England. Then we hit Benny’s to clear out the rest of their stock of 4X6 frames. (The best prices around for 4X6 frames, under $2 each, sweet!) What with all the pictures we’ve been printing lately it is a good thing. Have a wedding you’ll have great pictures to give all your friends and family for a while.
After that we went by my Aunt Corrine’s to drop off a gift for Madison and Haley. A scrapbooking set of 880 pieces. They are big Disney fans and take many pictures while they are there so scrapbooking was just a logical step. A gift they could share together. Corrine invited us to stay for dinner so instead of the stuffies we had Chinese food from Quan’s with Jeff, Corrine, Madison Haley, Murph, Connie and Aunt Millie. Then we played guess the movie with Uncle Murph. He had his ibook and found a wav file site and as he played clips Jeff, Allison and I guessed the movie. I was given a handicap of having to wait 10 seconds before answering. I think I scared Allison because I heard a gun being cocked and guessed Ghostbusters before any dialogue was said. Yeah, I like movies that much. It is scary.
After dinner we played Farkle. Farkle is a game with dice. It is a fun game that our family plays when they get together, All you need is 6 dice and the rules and a piece of paper to keep score. I looked for Farkle official rules and here is what I came up with. There are many different rule sets.
Farkle is also called Zonk, Zilch, 5000, 10000, Wimpout!, and Hot Dice.
Rules for the San Diego Surfing AcademyI have yet to find the rules for the game that we play by. When I do I will post them. I also found that I can get the game for the Treo. Yeah I may be getting that. Gotta practice. Madison and Haley are tough competitors.
