Every Christmas when the girls came home
we would all (4) play SCRABBLE....MACKAY rules which meant that if anyone was stupid enough to leave the table it was open slather to cheat (very character building)

This year I WON... big time and cheating...but every time Alison tried to think I guzzled my bottle of water...a bit off putting........ for Ali who is 'sensitive'

Melissa and Alison tried revenge but outclassed... I had already won.
And I knew I won honest and true...
Melissa was unsure and used a calculator...but I still won!

Love and blessings dear dear friend for a wonderful 09.

Looks like a good time was had by all. Are you sure that was only water in those bottles?

Happy 2009 to you and the girls, let this year be one of growth and enlightenment

Is someone cheating by using an electronic dictionary there? Happy, better, blessed 2009, Therese.
