While sponsored and hosted by Geek and Sundry, it is an inclusive celebration of the tabletop game. To reverse quote Buck Rogers, time to take out the cards and the backgammon boards. Happy celebrating, everyone!
For more, go to https://www.tabletopday.com/, but really, just break out the boards, cards, and dice, gather the family around, and play.
If you have ever had children, you know how this goes. Freya has been having severe teething since we got back from the in-laws at Christmas and since I’m the one without an income, I’m the one trying my best to deal with it. But that means something has to give, and that is the podcasts. I will try to get back to podcasting as soon as I can.
In the meantime, here’s a short list of new ideas I have had:
The Pad and the Phone – How to get interaction in the family in the age of the app.
Priority One – Making family a priority; goal setting, budgeting, and a change of focus in the 21st century.
The Return of the Tabletop Game? – Looking closely at a new start-up.
LP Sermon Series: God the Father – Who is God to us? What does God say? The Painful Truth
Until then, folks, thanks for sticking with me and God bless.
With a huge thanks to Pastor David Troutman of Northglenn Christian Church, I pass you a “to do” list for this Christmas season:
FINGER FOOD DINNER:
Pick a night this week. Go to the grocery store and have everyone pick out a finger food to share. Head home prepare your dishes and enjoy each others company!
CHRISTMAS MOVIE NIGHT:
Everyone put on your favorite PJ’s and slippers, make some hot cocoa or chai, pop some popcorn and watch a Christmas movie together.
DOLLAR TREE GIVING SPREE:
Head to the nearest dollar store and give everyone $1 for each family member (plus tax). You have ten minutes to find the perfect gift for each member. Go home and wrap the gifts for Christmas Eve or Christmas morning.
This one is simple… either look up a recipe or buy a kit. Spend the evening together decorating your edible house.
FAMILY GAME NIGHT:
Pull out some board games, a deck of cards or a puzzle.
CHRISTMAS CAMP OUT:
Combine any of the previously mentioned events with a living room camp out! Get out some blankets, make some forts and sleep on the floor.
The objective is to create memories. When we look back at the time we spend with our family we will rarely remember something someone gave us… what we remember is the time we spend with one another. GET CREATIVE and CREATE A LIFELONG MEMORY of CHRISTMAS 2016!
Amen, Pastor David. Merry Christmas, everyone!
