Family Game Night

We get a lot of presents for Christmas. It's kind of crazy, really. We have some really generous Grandparents, and sometimes that can get a wee bit overwhelming.
This year, in an effort to use these wonderful gifts toward a family oriented goal-
-I asked for and gave games.
Our kids get very few gifts from us, the parents, so I have to be very careful what I choose. I was very pleased with the above gift. I wrapped each game and then put them in a treasure box (from Hobby Lobby) and wrapped that as well. They were happy with the games, and we've had a lot of game-play in the family room because of them.
One set of grandparents also bought the kids a Wii. Already we've had some giggly family time in front of Disney Just Dance.
And we're looking forward to trying out our Hasbro Family Game Night.
We got a few other games as well--

And this--to help us all get into the horses the oldest loves so well.

So, as you can see, we're all set for pretty much 365 family game nights in 2013. : )
What games do you play with your kids? 
How do you spend your family nights?

  1. Family game nights are so fun! This post is making me realize that we haven't had one in a while and need to make that happen. Currently, we're in the Memory, Candy Lane and Chutes and Ladders phase of life. :) I *try* to sit and have lots of "simple" imaginary play with them (so entertaining!), but all too often let other things get in the way of that. I love it when it happen though. :) Looks like you guys are set for quite awhile! :)
