It's the little things: Chutes and Ladders

I remember playing board games like crazy when I was growing up. I would spend the night at my best friend's house and we would play monopoly all weekend long. When I was a bit older than Aubrey, it was all about the game of Life, Mall Madness and Clue.  Around Allyson's age, I remember playing Pretty Pretty Princess, Trouble and Chutes and Ladders. It was so much fun.

It was about time to play these games with the kiddos and why not bake some cookies AND let's do it 45 minutes before bed.

The timing wasn't ideal but last night we had a lot of fun playing Chutes and Ladders.

Austin was most interested in spinning the spinner. He didn't care whether he was going up a ladder or down a chute to the beginning, as long as he could flick the spinner, the world was a-ok in Austin's eyes.

Allyson did an amazing job last night. She took waited for her turn patiently, she understood the game, and she was even a gracious loser.


Now Aubrey, oh this girl isn't competitive at all, NOT! Anytime someone was ahead of her it was sad face and "oh man, Ally is going to win". Sad face and pouty lips when she went down the chute. Going up ladder and passing up brother and sister, she was all smiles, and giggling. She got a lucky hand and went all the way up the big ladder and just a few spins later she landed on space 100 to win the game!! CLwinner!
