catch phrase

We just got back from a quick little visit out to the lake with the parentals which included some of Big Daddy's infamous ribs and lots of rounds of Catch Phrase.

Have y'all played this before? Please add this to your game collection if you don't. The game does not disappoint. Our family just loves it!

So we divide up mama & me against Big Daddy & boy each time. Mama and I have a winning streak to keep up and are getting good at being pretty creative in the sports & games category when we need too.

me: "Big city in Ohio"
mama: "Cleveland"
me: "Good! You shouldn't wear this color with black"
mama: "Brown...Cleveland Browns!!"

Now I'll hand it to the boys they do very well in all the categories except, their downfall, "Entertainment". Big Daddy hasn't picked up too many issues of US & People in his day, so we know where to stump them and get some laughs.

Big Daddy: "I don't even know how to pronounce this name!"

The answer: Beyonce.

****
boy: "You texted us saying you just saw this person in LA two weeks ago"
Big Daddy: "Who did I see?"
boy: "yeah, she's a singer"
This went on for a bit.

The answer: Christina Aguilera.

And this is how mama and I win at Catch Phrase.

Big Daddy has also been lovingly enrolled in Celebrity Names 101.

I could play it with my friend & she'd say "You know - that thing" & I'd get it...everyone would be like "How did you do that?"...
