do. Good Stitches {a Charity Bee}

I am beyond excited to be a member of this new quilting bee. More information is available on the flickr group, but the quilts made from this bee will be donated to Wrap Them in Love. I had been mulling over a similar idea and I stumbled upon Rachel of Stitched in Color who had also been mulling it over. Not so shockingly, she actually got something with great substance started. Thank you, Rachel, for including me in this wonderful, heart-warming bee. =]

Gaming Advice Needed

We are expecting company starting next weekend. Dirty's dad and his new girlfriend are staying with us for a week. I *love* having company and I love Dirty's dad so we are excited. We have some things planned--flea market hopping, a trip to the local art market, a day at the beach, etc. I am a little worried about the evenings. The four of us sitting around the TV all night is not too fun. Do you have any card games, board games or party games you suggest we play? I've heard Apples to Apples is fun, but I've never played it. Any reviews? Do you and your family and friends have a game night? What do you play?

I have always liked playing games. Growing up we played them all the time. Dirty...not so much. I think I could rope him into a couple if they are fun.
