Million Minute Family Challenge & Halloween

I posted previously about us participating in the Million Minute Family Challenge. We set a goal of 1000 minutes. We have passed that, and are currently at just over 1500 minutes. We would have far more, but I have set certain requirements as to what qualifies. I won't count any games that we're playing for school. I also won't count any that aren't being played by at least 3 of us. Tomorrow should up the amount quite a bit. Since it's Halloween, we're taking the day off school and playing games all day. Not all of our games will count, like pumpkin darts & pumpkin bowling. However, we plan to play several board & card games. It should be a really fun day. I've been working on preparing for days now. We have some word searches for down time. We've got Halloween themed Mad Libs. We've got a good sized pumpkin for knife throwing (pumpkin darts), and two pie pumpkins for pumpkin bowling. I started working on the food today. We'll play Halloween Bingo, Halloween Scrabble, Halloween Scrabble Slam, and some non-Halloween themed games, too. We'll also watch at least one Halloween movie. It should be a fun day, and we're all looking forward to it.
