Cabin Fever Non-TV Activities

We're trying not to watch so much TV around here. The kids and Mark had a little winter "break" (no school Friday or Monday), but it's been too cold to play outside. I was pretty proud of the kids; we cleaned house and played school on Friday - the TV didn't even go on all day! But by Sunday after church, we succumbed. Plus we had about 3 movie nights. Oh well, family time right??

We have a Cranium "Hullabaloo" game which is nifty because the children, although various ages, can all play together. (Okay, Wynne doesn't stand on the right game pads, but we forgive her for that.)

Last night I had a VBS planning meeting, and here's what I found when I came back:

Daddy has initiated a puzzle party in the basement. He bought a one THOUSAND piece puzzle for us to put together. ONE. THOUSAND. PIECES. It is Mickey Mouse and every single piece has an image from a Disney movie, vintage or otherwise. The goal is to put it together, glue it, and hang it in the playroom. I love their ambition!! (Did I mention there were 1000 pieces in this thing?)

So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.--2 Corinthians 5:9
