The last few days of.....


This last week of the year was quite busy and enjoyable for the Sauve family. One of the things on our plate was bird sitting our dear friend's 3 parrots.

Picasso, a painted Conure, was by far our favorite. He was just a darling and liked to sit and cuddle on Josiah and Dad's shoulders.

Then there is Apollo, a gorgeous, extremely vocal Sun Conure. He made us all laugh because he chuckled/talked to himself when he ate.

And last, but definitely not least, was Frodo. Frodo was extremely shy and timid, and HUGE!

On the last day of bird sitting, most of us went and we had a few games of ping pong out in the long room at the back of the house.

None of us children are very good, but Mumsie and Dad, well you should have seen them make that ball fly!

On Thursday evening we had a wonderful time of fellowship and fun with the Bryson family. We had plenty of game options, don't you think?

One of the most popular games recently has been Dutch Blitz! If you have never played this game, you are missing out on lots of frustration, oh, whoops, I mean FUN! =)

Some of us got into a rousing game of Pit, which is endless fun as long as you don't mind losing your voice;)

Meanwhile, some of the rest of the group tried to ignore the shouting at the Pit table, and played a quiet game of Pass the Pigs.

The very last game of the evening was one of my very favorites: Taboo!! Oh, and here is a hint for those who have never played - always have a sibling as one of your team mates. It is amazing how much easier it is to explain things in your "family" language.

It was a wonderful evening! We played games, ate food, discussed gardening, animal husbandry and movies, and at the very end, we had a short wonderful impromptu song time. One of the things we thank the LORD for this year are all the good Christian families which He has blessed us with as friends.
