Pre-Christmas Party

Heather's family has had an annual tradition of going on a sleigh ride at Jester Park.  This year it was scheduled for the Friday before Christmas but the rain/ice storm that came through on Thursday cancelled the sleigh ride.  We had planned on having everyone over after the sleigh ride for supper but we improvised and started the party earlier!
Heather and I came up with a few "Minute to Win It" games.  The first one was tossing marshmallows through a Christmas wreath into a cinnamon roll pan...Nathan set the record at 11 marshmallows!
The next game was eating cookies that hung from a string off the table but you can't use your hands!  Gracie and Nathan did a great job eating their cookies!
Next up was Aaron Paul and Addy...
They both had their own style but in the end they both got their cookies eaten!
Then the little kids, Trigg...
Toby and Camille, all were successful...
...with a little help from their hands!
Next competition...stacking cups one handed.
Toby played a little music to cheer the competitors on!
Nathan had intense concentration while stacking his cups!
Aaron Paul made a good sized tower!
Uncle Chad showed us all how it is done...stacking 32 cups in one minute!
Uncle Rob came in a close second stacking 30 cups
Grandma Great took her tun stacking cups too!
Nathan ended up winning in the "kiddo" division and taking home the mustache mason jar cup!
We had a lot of fun hosting supper and the "competition"...the games were a big hit, they may become apart of our pre-Christmas tradition!
