It’s all in the cards

We’ve been having a grand time playing card games with Maisa this past week. She loves it.

Maisa has gotten a lot of practice playing cards at after-school, too, I’ve learned.

It’s a good way to pass the time on these cold winter nights at home — and while waiting for Daddy to pick her up from after-school.

Gift exchange

Jill got me several nice things for Christmas, including a Dodgers coffee mug and two shirts.

I got her a watch, a bathroom faucet and a desperately needed new can opener.

Next on our to-do list: a new water heater.

Maisa’s gifts were a big hit

Santa brought Maisa a markerboard/chalkboard easel, a fairy that flies and a Go Fish card game. Gramma and Grampa got her Hungry Hungry Hippos. Godfather Tom sent her a Rainbow Loom bracelet kit. We spent almost all of Christmas Day playing with those new toys and games. We had a blast.

Lots of laughs all around, especially when the flying fairy flew out of control and hit the unsuspecting Grampa B. in the belly.

For lunch we had free food at Wheelhouse Pizza just down the street. They gave away pizza as a form of customer/community appreciation. Great food!

+++++++

I spent part of the day watching the movie “The Town” while everyone else napped. It’s a story about a group of Boston bank robbers and their demise. Stars include Ben Affleck, Jon Hamm and Blake Lively.

It was an entertaining film, but I always feel a little depressed to know that there are real people and events similar to the ones in the film. It’s hard to believe people can be so violent and willing to throw away their lives, go to prison or end up dead.

Sing along

Maisa, Jill and I watched “The Sound of Music” this week after recording it on Sunday night.

I’d never seen the movie before. It was fun to watch it with a 6-year-old.

I didn’t realize how many famous songs are in that film. Wow.
