Game nights are becoming more of a special event in the Higham house. We're learning to create time where we can play games and have fun together as a family. This past year we have been introduced to a number of games that we really enjoy play. But here is a game that is fun to play, super easy, and only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to play!
A couple of years ago, I (Jay) met a couple of youth workers (husband and wife) who also started their own gaming company. They have created several card and board games that are really fun to play! The name of their company is Wild East Game Company. Brian and Jill Bollinger are the husband and wife team behind these original and creative games. We have three of their games and really enjoy playing them.
Lightning Dice is one of our favorites. Super easy to play, you can sit down and play a round in about 15 minutes. The game itself is simple; match the face of the dice to the images on the card. The first person to reach the finish wins!
Tuesday night we played a couple rounds of Lightning Dice before the kids went to bed. It was a chance to get the kids off their devices, away from the TV, and have some before the end of the day. Lightning Dice is so easily played, we can all play it. No strategy needed. No concentration required. You just roll your die until you match the playing card.
Watch the Vlog of us playing Lightning Dice!
You can find more information about Lightning Dice, Wild East Game Company, and my friends Brian and Jill at their website, www.WildEastGames.com. You can order a copy of the game from their website.
We love a great t-shirt. Soft and comfortable, fun to wear, and if it has a great message, well then that's a bonus. These thoughts are what led Jay to create his first line of custom t-shirts. Jay wanted a shirt that communicated his faith and shared the hope that we find in knowing Jesus. But He didn't want a shirt front that was filled up with Bible verses. It's easy to see a shirt like that and just walk on by. Too many words.
So Jay thought of a handful of words that would lead to a conversation. A shirt with a word the leads to a question; a question that then leads to an opportunity. That's what In A Word is all about. One word that leads to a question, that leads to a conversation.
Each design comes in both a classic cut and a ladies cut.
Youth sizes will be available in May 2018!
These tees are available for purchase thanks to our new partnership with an excellent t-shirt printer. Each shirt is uniquely printed when you order, and shipped directly to you within about two weeks! We would be honored if you would order and wear one or more of our In A Word Tees. Wear them and have a conversation with someone!
Thank you so much for your support. We hope you enjoy our In A Word Tees!

As many of you may know, this spring, Asher and Breya took on the responsibility of two little bunnies. While we already have a bunny, we didn't have a hutch for these two little ones. Plus, it's been really cold, too cold to put these cuties outside. So they've been living in our garage waiting for a new home!.
The hutch was made with Advantek's GoneGreen lightweight insect-resistant and rot-resistant fir lumber. It arrived in prefabbed sections that were super easy to assemble. When it was complete, the dimensions measured 25" L x 48" W x 36" H.
Assembly was incredibly easy. Both Asher and Breya helped to build the hutch. Actually, Asher and Breya built the hutch. Jay helped them follow the instructions and as they worked with the drill.
It took about 20 minutes to build. We assembled the hutch right in our dinning room. Once we were finished, we carried the hutch to the garage and moved the bunnies into their new home. So far it looks like they love it. For the time being, the rabbits will stay in their new hutch, in the garage. We're still experiencing some very cold temperatures at night and our little bunnies are ready to move to the outdoors just yet. But soon enough it will be warm and we'll move them to the yard for the summer.
We documented the build with a special vlog that you can watch on our YouTube channel. Simply click on the graphic just below to watch the vlog.
The hutch? The Stilt House by Avantek. We ordered ours from Amazon.com. With our prime membership we received free shipping and it arrived in just two days. The cost? $129 and some change.
Thanks for reading and watching the vlog!

It's a special day in the Higham house!
Today, Toby is getting a haircut!
Toby is an amazing dog. He really is. His disposition of awesome. He's great with the kids, well behaved, smart, and still has enough energy to run around the yard like a puppy.
Toby is a Goldendoodle. His father was 100% poodle. Mom was a golden doodle mix. That leaves Toby with an interesting make up. One of the things we love about Toby is his hair. When it's short it's soft and fluffy. But when it grows out, it gets shaggy, curly and matted. When that happens, it's time to visit the groomer.
So off to the groomers we go for his regular cut.
We have found a great groomer in our area who does a really good job, especially working with the matted portions around his tail and hindquarters. She also does a great job clean his ear, clipping his nails and bathing. It's a regular trip to the spa.
The end result? Well, see it for yourself!
