31 DAYS: DAY 28, OUR FAVORITE GAMES MAKE ME SMILE

With no distractions like television, cell phones, computers, and the like, there is plenty of time to play games together.

Just a few of our favorites:  Phase 10, Skip Bo, Rummy Cube, Rummy (cards), Mexican Train Dominoes, Backgammon, and UNO.

Some of the most precious memories I have with Nate are of playing games around the dining room table.  He perfected his card shuffling right before the accident and was so proud.  And one night in June, he kept the best attitude when he never picked up a tile that allowed him to start his train.  He just sat quietly making an intricate pattern with his many dominos.  It was just like him to turn his misfortune into an art project.  He may even have enjoyed that more than winning or playing for that matter.

What a sweet memory you shared of Nate! We played "king monkey" game when the family was here the Thanksgiving before the accident and created lots of fun memories as well.
Thank you for sharing about our wonderful Grandchildren!
love, Deanna :-)
