We had a couple of Christmas parties, just our little family...
At one we played this silly little candy cane game. It was pretty fun and Rob and I did very well at it. I also have to remember what a success the "Draw that Song" game was. Like Pictionary, only drawing Christmas carols and then after they guessed the right song, we sang it. Everyone loved it!
William was rocking it this night (actually everyone looked pretty cool in those glasses)!
At dinner for our party. Everyone was awesome!
Grandma and Grandpa Rachiele gave us a super fun new game, Farmopoly. Just like Monopoly but everything to do with the farm.
I think everyone was pretty happy with the things they got. Well, for the most part. Haley was slightly disappointed that Santa gave Peter a teddy bear and she got a tiger (she had written a letter to Santa ((in school)) 3 days before Christmas that she wanted a teddy bear.) William seemed a little down that there was not more for him under the tree. And Caleb felt a little sad that he did not get any toys for Christmas.
But he did get some snazzy shoes, and Diedre liked her fabric gift bags she made (I am a dork).
Granny Gray's house had plenty of snow to play in. Haley was out there for all of 10 minutes.
But Caleb and others built a great snowman. Then everyone else had loads of fun playing the Jason Gray's new video game, singing together, eating together, laughing together and having fun. Even Peter said it was an awesome Christmas! Steve made delicious ranch to go with the rolls. Dacia made a terrific roast and gravy. My kids loved playing with baby Abby. Kids had great cousin time. It was awesome!
