Canasta...spanish for basket.

Jayson and I play a lot of Canasta. When I say a lot, I really mean several games a night. We get in our p.j.'s, sit on our bed, and bring out the cards. It gets pretty tricky on the bed, so we often bring our full size mirror and it acts as our table. When I was pregnant with Mae, we would play rummie every night. Canasta is our new fav. These are the memories I'll cherish.

In case you were wondering, I win most of the time. But when Jayson wins, he wins by a lot.

Heidi...hey this is Shara's mom...and I was so glad to read this post. I need to follow your example...my grandparents played games every night for all the time I was aware of them.. until they were in their 90's and until Granny just got sick. I believe it is one of the hallmarks of their love and wonderful marriage and example to us. Thankyou for reminding me of this on Valentines Day. ( they went years on one game...dominos, rummicub, sequence, and also did play lots of card games! )

Heidi---I can't tell you how happy I am to have found another blogger in the neighborhood! One that I can actually BE FRIENDS WITH IN PERSON.
Scott and I were Canasta crazy a few years back but I've forgotten the rules. Want to have a canasta party soon?
