Family Dinner

We had a nice family dinner last night, my sister-in-law, her fiancee, and my father-in-law down at our house. They cooked a nice meal, which we haven't had in some time. Kendall and Kyle went to piano while we got started, but they came back and we had a nice large scrabble game. Kendall helped me, working through words on my board. Kyle and Tia were together, with Delaney in and out a bit. Lonnie (my father-in-law) on his own, and Kris and Chrissy making a team.

We played one game while things were cooking, and I opened great with a 77 to start, using all my letters. That was the first time I think I've ever done that. We got through 3 rounds before dinner and everyone conceded the came to me :) It's not often that I win, with Lonnie and Tia usually competing hard and having great vocabularies. I'm usually 2nd or 3rd, and I've gotten used to it.

In the second game, I actually started the game with "MINT"  and even that required a blank space! I seemed to constantly have 4-5 vowels, and Kendall and I struggled for words, but somehow we were winning. We had 99 to start the last round at 10:30 and a 22 pt lead when I went to put Kendall to bed.

I wonder if I won....
