And on his return, he proudly showed us his loot - a set of bingo! LOL... It was the kind that you needed to punch the round plastic number "tiles" (do tiles come in round shape too?) from the "mat" it came with. Rather crude. He worked on it for the rest of the day until he had his chance to emcee the game right at home, after our Christmas dinner.
And what do you know? We had FUN! The laughter echoing within the corners of our humble home was too precious! The kids were game even if it only meant winning pens, recycled gifts (haha!), small items, chips, nuts, chocolates and the occasional cash. And the twist to the game was a novelty too. The winner got to grab any gift he/she wanted. It was hilarious!
Who would have thought a game of bingo would be that fun??? We enjoyed it so much we had another session with our cousins, the Herreras, Cruzes and Villaruels. :) Yup, just a couple of days after.
I didn't know bingo could be this fun!
The bingo games were a blast AND the pizza and the barbecue, chorizo, puso and ice cream our cousins sponsored made the extended family bonding perfect!
