Noah's best friend

Steve, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Steve taught us how to play "Shadows of Camelot." If you like Settlers of Catan and have an interest in King Arthur, you'll love this game. My favorite aspect of it is that the entire group who plays are cooperating to defeat the board. The idea is that the cards and the way the board is configured requires a group effort to go on quests and defeat them. So each time anyone triumphs, we all cheered because it was a group victory.

There is the possibility of a traitor which adds to the level of intrigue. Sort of like a player who "shoots the moon" in Hearts.

Game board is gorgeous and all miniatures are meticulously crafted.

We had such a good time!

Merry Christmas

Before all the excitement, we had shiny bows. Tomorrow (technically today, the 26th) will make 365 days of photo-shooting. Woo-hoo! I'm sure I'll keep posting photos here. But I may not post every day.

In the meantime, I hope your day was as relaxed and enjoyable as ours. And if you get the chance to see "Juno" (the movie), I recommend it!

Christmas Place Cards

Caitrin is really on a roll creating these. I love the card holders (from Pier One Imports).

Cincinnati Ice Rink

Cincinnati Ice Rink, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Yesterday's excursion to the downtown, outdoor rink. (Three of our kids are the ones holding hands in the center.) All the skating you want for a $2.00 fee and $2.00 rental. Grater's (famous Cincinnati ice cream) is outside the rink, conveniently enough. :)

Blue and orange

I took Caitrin to see the Nutcracker on Thursday and forgot about my photos. I have two others from the Aronoff Center that were inspired by jayfish's style of photograph. You can see them here and here.

Graham cracker gingerbread house

While I already posted photos of gingerbread, I liked this one that I snapped the other day best.
