Christmas with the Lambs

Last weekend Scottie's family all made the long drive up to see us for our family Christmas party. Since I can't travel too far these days I really appreciated all the effort they put in to make it for the big celebration. Scottie and I hosted the party so we decided to make soup and bread bowls and head up to temple square and check out the lights.

Uncle Scottie and Josie Jos

The whole clan: Me, Scottie, Thomas and Brinlee, Josie, JoAnn, Tony, Cleo, Audrey Justin, & Jason (minus Brandon and Yin)

Afterwards we headed back to our house and enjoyed some festive fun of Minute to Win it games. We started out the fun filled night playing cookie face...

After cookie face, the first five cookie eaters advanced to the next round of reindeer games. In this game contestants had to blow up eight balloons and shove them into the legs of panty hose. After all eight balloons were in they had to place the antlers on their head and sing "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer". It was quite a comedy...





If you could master the reindeer games you automatically advanced to the next round to compete in "Hanky Panky". Contestants had to pull out all the tissues from the tissue box or order to be considered for the semi finals...

Those that mastered the art of Hanky Panky were admitted into the next round of Junk in the Trunk...

For the final round of minute to win it, the last two contestants had to pick up a candy cane with their mouth and place it on the string.

Then they had to run and pick a balloon to pop.

After they popped the balloon the goal was to find the one balloon that said Merry Christmas!! If they found a balloon that said...

Happy Hannakuah
Feliz Navidad
Happy Kwanza

Then you had to go pick up another candy cane and try again. It was pretty intense when we started with 20 balloons and it came down to the last two before Yin finally found the winning balloon. Boy was she excited to find that Merry Christams! Way to go! She was the proud winner of a $75 gift card.

My favorite picture of the night. Boy did she just love my belly!

Since Yin only came up to my belly she loved to put her mouth right up to the babe and talk to her. She was cracking me up!

Merry Christmas!
