Thank goodness my in-laws don’t do that stuff.  🙂

When my parents host, they have a bigish house so we can spread out.  In the summer its on the back patio so we can swim, play lawn games, or go inside.  Inside in the winter there are enough chairs, there are tv’s, food, etc.

It helps that we like each other and can all sit around and talk without anything to “do.”

@edgebee:  Drink?  lol

Sometimes we’ll play 2 player games with people cheering some on, and then we switch it up.

I used to bring books to my ex’s family’s incredibly dull/awkward get togethers…

…The only time a book ever saw the inside of that house…

My family and FMIL’s side are pretty boring, unfortunately. FFIL’s side, though, we play games (Settlers of Catan, Munchkin, Catchphrase, Spoons, etc.), though it really depends on whose house we’re at (if we’re up north, we go out on the lake, etc.).

Usually we just talk.  Mostly about the news, politics, movies we’ve seen.  That really sucks that it’s so boring!  I cannot imagine!
