Is it in bad taste to reblog yourself? Ah well, too late. It’s Friday night and I just got back home and have to head out early. I was thinking that back when the blog started the family’s Dad Libs videos from YouTube only got a few views. Since we have a larger audience now I would assume most of you haven’t seen these. This is one from March of last year. Our Mad Libs version of The Star Spangled Banner. I hope you and your family have as much fun as we do when you are together! Micah likes to do some creative editing with these so enjoy!

Do you have “Game Night” at your house? No, I don’t mean Friday Night Football; I mean a night when you and your family, and/or friends gather around the dining room or coffee table and play games, board games, card games, drinking games… well, okay, maybe not with the family. At our house our favorite is probably Apples to Apples. We have expansion sets, the travel version, and even the new Green Apples version. I’m not going to link you to the board game geek site, because those bozos only gave it a 6.38 rating out of 10. That’s insane! It’s a smart and creative game, if not a competitive one.
Another smart and fun game we play is called Dad Libs, no not Mad Libs, but our own tailored version of the game. If you haven’t played Mad Libs before, check out some info on it by clicking here. Now what my sons and I do is one of us picks a story, a song, a poem, something online. Then he cuts and pastes it into a word or Google document and blanks out some of the words. Without giving away the source the leader of the game asks the rest of us for adjectives, nouns, verbs, etc. until the blanks are filled in.
Below is the example of what we came up with about a month ago. My youngest son did the recording and editing, and uploaded it to his unessentialusername channel on YouTube.
