life : it's in the cards



scott's family loves to play crazy eights. mine goes along to be polite and because we have no other suggestions for fun ;). often, charlie wins with a lot of bravado. the object of the game is to get rid of all your cards. when someone plays a two the next player is supposed to pick up two cards, unless they have a two. well, charlie started it and it ended with him. he had to pick up 8 cards! it was historic and i have the photo to prove it. he won anyway. so close. thankfully, scott won a hand. he loves to win, too. hope you had a good weekend!

xo, cindy

ps last week, charlie also received a very sweet card from an equally sweet girl. thank you, j!

Growing up our families would get together and play cards often. I like how your family joins in. Yahoo... Charlie!
Do you think someday Charlie will do us the honors and be a guest on quaint handmade?

Have a golden day Cindy! xoxo

oh, card games can be so much fun. but if you are part of two very competitive families, it can be very intense... Hope Charlie is doing well (and you too).

Card games are so much fun, especially when the cards align :)

Very nice shot!

I'm not good at playing cards, though I think it's fun. The kids love to play a game called "boer lap". They play it whenever we go visit their grandparents. We should play games like that more often - so much better than watching TV...

it's nice to see so many of you play cards. we'd love to learn cribbage and even have the board!

we play crazy eights in my family as well. and, believe it or not, even though my siblings and i are all in our mid-40's to late 50's, we all still like to play old maid with our grandkids!!!
