Crossy Road – My New Favorite Distraction

Sometimes you need a distraction, and my kids introduced me to a game that reminds me of my childhood days of trying to get Frogger across the road.

Crossy Road is a new app for iPhone or iPad that has one simple point…get your character across the road, river, and train tracks without getting hit.

Here’s a video of the gameplay:

It is super fun and addictive. While you’re crossing the road, you can pick up in-game coins along the way. These coins let you buy new characters when you collect 100. I usually let my kids do that part, because they seem to like it.

My current high score is 384. Try it out and see if you can top me!

My Kids are Thankful

We live in a society that likes to blast through Thanksgiving to make it to Christmas. I love Christmastime just as much as everyone else. This year, though, I decided to help my kids try to think about Thanksgiving a little bit by making a video with them.

Here’s the video we made.

They didn’t go as deep as I’d like them to go about what they’re thankful for, but I know they understand that they are blessed and should be grateful. I’m looking forward to more making videos like these in the future.

What do you do to teach your kids to be thankful? Let me know in the comments.

PAC-MAN Friends Free for iOS for a Limited Time

If you're like me, you played PAC-MAN a lot while you were growing up. I remember our family tournaments on the old Atari.

In fact, it's one of the few games I keep on my iPad, and one of the few I find myself playing on trips. I was just playing it on an airplane last weekend.

Well, they have recently come out with a game called “PAC-MAN Friends” for iOS, and it's the featured app of the week. It features all new gameplay with the classic characters.

For a limited time it's free, so head over to the App Store and download it today!
