Monopolizing Time

New Year’s day usually consists of sleeping in and then gaming.

This year was no exception as we enter 2022’s pictures.

Thunderer fell out pretty early and Superman wanted to play his new Metroid Dread game he got for Christmas. I can’t recall at this point but I think I had just recently fallen out due to all those hotels in the corner.

Little Miss, TJ, and Newbie were duking it out though.

While this may not have been how the game ended, she was quite proud of how much she was able to accumulate before being whittled down by only having one monopoly.

TJ, ultimately, was the winner of this round.


New Year’s 2021: The Food Hovering

Naturally with so much food out, everybody has gathered around to graze and enjoy what’s there and available.

In Little Miss’ hands on the right you can also see that we’re slowly getting ready for the next part of the tradition: board game night.


New Year’s 2021: The Food

That’s it. That’s the post. I can’t recall what year I started laying out finger foods for New Year’s, but it’s been a hit every year so that’s what I continue to do.

Cheeses, sausage, shrimp, crackers and chips, pepperoni, and lunch meat, I’m ready to serve the myriad tastes of the large family as we welcome the new year.
