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.

Birthday Zonk

She really must have had an amazing birthday if she zonked so hard out on the couch.

I can’t remember what birth year it was exactly that she argued “but it’s my birthday day!” around bed time and we capitulated at her cuteness and let her stay up until midnight, but on this latest birthday she didn’t make it to midnight at all.

It’s the Christmas break though, so why not let her stay up a bit later, right?

No Way Home

So just a couple months since the physical release I’m celebrating here when we went to actually see No Way Home in the theatre.

Naturally we were still using masks as not everyone (Newbie) was vaccinated yet, but by going a few weeks after release during their Christmas break we made sure to minimize covid contact as much as possible.

I’m pretty sure the girls just didn’t want to bother smiling for the picture so they put their masks up instead.

It was a fantastic end to the three movie establishment arc of Holland’s Spiderman portrayal and I look forward to whatever comes next.

(As I’ve scheduled this the Love and Thunder trailer came out just this week and Multiverse of Madness was still unrated to give folks a hint as to when I actually scheduled this post.)

Settling in With Christmas (2011)

With everything opened, it was time for the kids to scatter and go make use of their new items.

Thunderer greatly appreciated her new playdoh, for example.

Superman was caught actually reading too!

And I don’t care that it’s a comic. It’s still reading. Deal with it.
