What to do When Everyone is Around

It is no secret that Christmas is approaching very fast. Christmas is a time to spend with family and friends, not our phones. I've found that a lot of people today don't know how to spend time with one another. So I've come to give you some suggestions!

Instead of having people segregate to one area of the house here are some things you can do as a family that will get you laughing and spending time with one another as a family.

I love to gather my family around and watch home movies! There is nothing like gathering around the television commenting on how much everyone has changed . If you don't have home movies, pull out some old photos! Younger kids would love seeing their parents as youngsters.

My family and I also love to play board games! Some of our favorites are Uno, and Dominoes (also known as Mexican trains) Password, Catchphrase, and Yahtzee. This gets everyone together and engaged with one another.

If nothing else, turn off the TV, place all cell phones, tablets, and other electronic devices in a basket and hide them, and just converse with one another. It's rare these days.

These are only a few ideas that I wanted to share with you! This is also a great list to do for New Year's as well!

What do you do when your family is around for the holidays? Leave me a comment and let me know!
