Do not pass go! Do not Collect 200 Dollars!!


At church yesterday a friend of ours gave us a Harley Davidson Monopoly. So we decided that we would play it last night. We all know how long this particular game takes, and we all know how competitive I am, and Albert is just as bad. All of these things combined leads to us early to bedders being up playing monopoly until midnight last night. Neither of us wanted to give up and so decided that it was totally worth staying awake and only getting a small amount of sleep. Of course I know you are all dying to know who won, and don't worry I will tell you. The lead went back and forth the whole night with each of us mortgaging properties and then getting out of debt until about 11 o' clock when the slow death of Albert came to pass. :( Awwww.....At the very end he ended up with only a get out of jail free card to bargain with, that was quickly lost (to me of course) and the game was over at midnight, with all of the properties in my possession, and almost all of the money as well. Oh well too bad I guess if I had to win....Just kidding I loved it I never win board games Tim always beat me! So that was a fun memory that we got to make thank you to the Starnes!!! The first picture is of the board, where you can see all of my garages and showrooms, the second shows my side with everything lol, and the third of my pouty baby husband. Luckily he was a good sport and didn't throw a fit when he lost, he just promptly got out his guitar and started singing a song about how he lost. 
So yay for fun late nights and good memories!

I can't believe you stayed up till midnight. I have to be honest, I've never actually played the game of monopoly the way you're actually supposed to play it. As kids we just loved the concept of the money and throwing each other in jail. ..

Liz - I think it might be in our genes. I HATE to lose too. I either need to not try at all so I have an excuse for losing or I HAVE to win. I feel your pain.

You had better learn to let him win at board games because he won't be winning at anything else.

Awww, dad, such a tragic commentary! And I don't know, at all, what you are talking about! Hey, Shaver's, love seeing the referee kitty in the background. Love, mom
