Dinner, Celebration and Games!

Sunday we all got together for our weekly family dinner. The twins are turning 9 this week so we celebrated their birthday as well. Kristen out did herself making Emily’s favorite – stuffed shells. After dinner we watched the twins open a huge pile of gifts and shared cake & ice cream.

Lately we have been playing games in the evening. Thirty One is a card game Ivan learned at Nana Mary’s house and he taught us how to play. It really is a quick fun game. Some people play with quarters, but we use pennies. The kids enjoy it went they beat the grown ups!
