The Family that Games Together

We have a lot of time on our hands right now. We are getting more snow as I write this, and we have no idea how much to expect. The news is saying anywhere from 10-20 more inches, so we aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Tony did manage to make it in to work today but he said the streets in the city were awful. He also got Landon out to the doctor’s office for his weekly allergy shot, but that has pretty much been the extent of “getting out”.

So, we’ve been playing LOTS of video games. Here are the one’s keeping us busy:


Bioshock 2 came out today and he just had to stop at the store to pick up his copy. He’s already spent an hour playing it…


The Sims 3. I’ve had it for awhile and Zoe and I played it for quite some time, but then it got put away for a bit…it’s back out and I’ve got the World Adventures expansion pack to go with it. I’ve spent countless hours playing this silly game!


Gears of War 2. She’s just recently realized that she can hook up with friends on the X-Box and talk to them while playing this game. She’s spending lots of time talking to friends and learning how to play the game at the same time…if she keeps it up, she and Tony are going to have some serious issues sharing the X-box!


Castle Crashers. He started playing this game quite awhile back, but in true Landon fashion he quit mid way through. Yesterday he found it again and has been fighting for time on the X-Box as well…I have to say that this game seems to be really geared to boys his age. I can’t think of any other video game out that has animals pooping and peeing all over the place. Little boys just love them some bathroom humor…

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
