Hand and Foot

Hand and Foot is the favored card game whenever my family gets together so naturally when beth and I counted the hours and realized we had seven hours to kill at the airport, we bought 3 overpriced decks of cards, found a quiet patch of carpet behind a pillar and started shuffling.

Everyday I am shuffling shuffling… Is that song stuck in your head now? Good, it is stuck in my head too. Misery loves company.

Don’t know how to play hand and foot? I started writting out our family’s version of Hand and Foot but as it ends up writing out instructions is really hard. Really really hard. I didnt get past the dealing of the cards before i googled the rules of hand and foot. Here is the link I found. Our version is slightly different but the essence of the game is there. If you have a different version p!ease leave your instructions in the comments. Sometimes when we are feeling adventurous we like to mix it up a bit and tweek the rules. We are crazy like that.

We killed a good hour playing. It was as much fun and killing time in an airport can get with out the assistance of a well mixed bloody Mary.


Bonus Day

There was no school yesterday for the boys because… lets be honest, I don’t know. All I know is that the calendar says no school for the boys so I have two less backpacks to pack.

Elise did have school yesterday so after we dropped her off we headed home as the snow started to fall. The boys did some “snow plowing” and when they had successfully moved the snow from one area of the driveway to a slightly different area of the driveway they came in, grabbed their bucket of Legos and got to work.

Is their a better way to spend a day home from school?!
