Happy New Year!!

Nina is obsessed with playing Uno, so our New Year's Eve and New Year's Day were basically one wild Uno party. I also got some seltzer and made the girls lots of bubbly juice to drink from champagne glasses, so it was good times all around.

We needed more players, though, so some of the toys ended up joining us for a few games. Guess who I lost to yesterday night?

It's demoralizing when I can't even beat a stuffed banana.

Our family games are a riot. Maggie doesn't lose well, let's just start with that. And she can't sit next to Nick, because if he plays a "tee-hee" card (skip, plus two, or reverse), she'll freak out and smash up the game. Same goes if she puts down a wild card and someone changes the color too quickly. We don't coddle her, though, she has to get used to the rules of the game and not getting her way, so that makes for an interesting time. However, she plays well more often than not, so it's usually a success. She just says, "Oh ginzos!" when she has to draw cards, and happily continues.

That's what I said when I lost to Carlos Banana. "Oh ginzos!!"
