Happy (belated) Holidays

Our holiday traditions usually include a ripping game or two of The Settlers of Catan; somewhat of a mix between Risk and Monopoly. The picture shows one of the Seafarers expansion variants. In this particular scenario, players explore uncharted territories with ships; a cool twist where gambling with resources doesn't always pay off. We were introduced to the game a few years ago and immediately bought it. We've since introduced it to a few couples that have themselves immediately bought the game. A great time!

I wish for you and your loved ones to find peace and abundance this holiday season and into the new year!

Discussion of the Week

My five year old son: "Dad, where do babies come from?"

(Dad, recognizing the significance of "a moment")

Dad: "Well, a mommy and a daddy love each other, and one day they loved each other so much that they made a baby."

(Dad thinking he nailed that one!)

son: "Yeah, but where do they come from?"

Dad: "Well, they come from Love."

(quit asking questions kid)

son: "Noo! But which body parts?!"

(hmmmmmmmm, give me a second here)

Dad: "Well, a mommy gets a baby in her belly then the baby is born through her vagina."

End of discussion. I figured that buys me at least another year or two.
