Annetta, Carol and Lydia~
Lydia and myself~
Deb and Nancy were the hostesses for the evening and did a fabulous job! The main theme of the night was "A Minute to Win It" and I must say, that all of these ladies are VERY competitive!
First thing on the agenda, however, was a lovely Christmas Fashion Show, featuring Miss Deb.
Isn't she darling?
Nancy gave a lovely description of all she was wearing and doing, how she celebrates her holiday, etc...
Later, we had to guess what she wore, or revealed and write them all down. There were two winners to this game and I'm so thankful I was one of them...because there was a lot of work to the rest of the evening (and a little humiliation?!). I received a lovely prize and then got to watch the others compete for the remaining prizes.
The first competitors did a little warming up before competing...
Karen and Ellen had to toss marshmallows into a wreath-lined bucket...
Notice the intense concentration!
Ellen was the winner of that game!
Then it was time to thread the spool on the candy cane...
And after that, a little tree decorating, sans hands!
More ornaments on the clothes and jewelry than on the tree!
Puzzle assembly with Nancy and Annetta...
And the grand finale...trying to open the incredibly, difficult, wrapped packages...while wearing big, bulky, ski mittens.
Lydia has obviously played this game before...she ROCKED this game and got most of the prizes. There was no mercy with this girl!!
You got to keep the package until someone rolled doubles with the dice.
I kid you not, when I say that I NEVER got both mittens on before someone rolled doubles. Not one time. Nada.
Deb and Nancy put on a lovely spread of yummy appetizers, desserts and beverages.
Such a fun and wonderful evening! I'm totally stealing all of these ideas for Christmas!!!
