Turtlenecks, Eggnog, and White Elephants!

This year, we combined our annual Turtleneck-Eggnog Party with the Lee's White Elephant Party. It proved to be a good combination and hopefully, we'll do it again next year.

We had a huge turnout and we're so glad everyone could make it. Everyone was a good sport for putting up with Anna-Lisa's crazy games that she practically forced people to play! The Skittle's Game turned out be a blast. Scott Barnes and Bobby can "suck it up pretty good!"

I decided to have a donut eating contest as well. I haven't done one of these in years so it was fun to have one at the party. Dustin Lee was the winner and he really did devour that donut incredibly fast!

Lisa came up with a really fun way to do the white elephant exchange. She had statements like, "If you were born in California, you can get a present." and many more like that. Anytime you qualified for a question, you had to get up to exchange your present. No one unwrapped anything until the very end. It was fun because everyone got to play more and it was fun to see what people were fighting over at the end! This years gift that people wanted turned out to be a bowling ball with it's carrying case. Pretty cool!

Thanks to everyone that came and brought a treat to share. I hope everyone got some eggnog. We'll see you all next year. If you want to see more pics of the party, check back later. When Pat wakes up he'll put them on the blog!

Anna, it was so good to see you when we were in Utah! Looks like a great party. I need your email address to add you. You can leave it on the blog and it won't show up, but I'll get it.

That looks like a blast! I love those types of parties and the invitation is SO creative. It was fun seeing you at the GNO. See you soon!
