We are standing beside our house. We enjoyed playing Annie Over when nieces and nephews came to visit. The old smokehouse is in the background.

Directions:
Directions:
Annie Over is played over a lower building (one you can throw a ball over and be able to run all the way around). You call out "Annie, Annie Over" and throw the ball over the building to the kids on the other side.

If they catch the ball they can sneak around the building and throw the ball at you or catch you and tag you. You have to keep an eye open for them coming and beat them to the other side of the building. If you make it then that is good for your side but if you are tagged then you must move to their side.

There can be an even number of kids on each side to start with. When there are three to four kids on a side they can split up and some go each way and then you don't know who has the ball. If the ball is not caught then they can wait a moment to try and fool you and then holler out "Annie, Annie Over" and throw the ball back. If the ball doesn't go over the building, the throwers can yell 'Pigtail!', and then try to throw it again.

The ball must be caught in order to run around the building after you. When the last kid on a team is tagged then that team wins.
