Monster

Monster is our favorite family game and anybody can be it. This game ignites imaginations, expends energy, and wears us out. So funny to hear those breaths inhale sharply as heads slowly turn, gasping, Monster . . . come! I was watching a stupid, heavily edited horror flick on regular TV the other day during nap (yet another reason to nominate me Mother of the Year) and the boys joined me as they got up (reason #2). Yeah, sure, I thought, I really should turn this off, this can't be right. But somehow I couldn't rise from the couch. During every commercial, gleeful protests of More Monster, please! were heard. Anyway, this is the great part of having three three-year old boys. There's always enough to play a whopping game of monster. Clearly in these pictures (night pics in my house are hard, so excuse blurredness), Tsega is Igor with a hunchback and Sira and Bereket are some kind of wicked shirt monsters.

Weird and Ghastly!


Slimy and Oozing!


Fantastically Freaky!



Wild and Abhorrent!

Ummm, care to explain the shirts? Or is this just a 3 yo boy thing and I need to be prepared?

We play monster over here-one loud three year old girl and two crazy parents...fun and tiring to play.

I'm a huge crazy fan of your boys!! We are the family who saw their "referral pics" on the wall at social worker, Steffany's office! The boys are getting so big. Our Zoie is almost 2!! Come by and say hi at our new blog
