Killing Time with the Fam

Here are some of the 'funner' things we've done as a family over the Christmas break. Some are traditions, some 'r not...
  • Take one of the FREE personality or intelligence tests at Testdex. Compare results.
  • Share a Christmas eve Breakfast. Turk on the TV comedy Scrubs calls this 'Brinner'.
  • Open one present on Christmas eve and the rest on Christmas morning.
  • Take a picture of the "present" that Shamus left for us under the Christmas tree.
  • Play speed Scrabble.
  • Play Amy Grant's Christmas album and see how long it takes for Shannon to complain.
  • Catch a movie.
  • Play Nerts.
  • Play Upwords.
  • Play Rummikub.
  • Read the Christmas Story, of course.
  • When the kids were little we'd build a fort out of a refrigerator box, build a mattress slide down the stairs, build a fort with blankets and couch cushions, play indoor tackle football with Dad, get bumped onto the couch cushions on the floor.
  • Cook and bake experimental goodies (usually they're Very Good!).
  • This year I'd like to deliver some of those experimental goodies to neighbors.
What do you do with your family at Christmas?

  1. Hi, I found your blog post through a search for "Nerts". It is cool to see others that know about the game. I hope you don't mind but I wanted to let you know about, the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information there. I hope you will check it out. Feel free to join and also let your friends and family know. Thanks
