Winter Wonderland Party

I can't help but laugh when I see the title of this post, cause its spring! and its warm! and I'm writing about a winter wonderland...
But there is a good reason for this.  It was supposed to be a family Christmas party, but we were snowed out, so it turned into a Winter Wonderland family party.  We didn't plan on waiting until it was spring, but that's what schedules permitted, so that's what happened.  Anyhow, we had a great time, even though it was warm outside, but it certainly looked like a winter wonderland inside!
Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy!  My Aunt and Uncle came up from Virginia and my other Aunt and Uncle came down from Maine, so it was nice to see them all again ;)

 The beautiful snowy place settings ;)

 Mmm!  Goodies!  The dessert table is always my favorite place at a party.  

 Yes, that is a cake, NOT a candle!  The cake has a tealight in the top so it looks like a candle ;)
 Chit chat and food!

 Aren't these penguins just sooooo cute!!!??
 One of the games we played was a competition to see who could make the best snowman out of toilet paper in 5 minutes.  That was really fun and really funny!

 My cousin's wife was such a good sport...she left me stick black circles to her glasses for snowman eyes ;)
 The finished snowman for my team.  She kept coming unraveled ;D
Their snowman was melting too..hehe!
 The next game we played, we had to draw a snowman on a paper plate on top of our heads.  We were given certain instructions at a time, such as "draw three circles on top of eachother" and "draw two stick arms coming out of the middle circle".  Do you have any idea how hard it is to find the middle circle on top of your head???!!!  Needless to say, I do not take instructions for drawing on my head very well ;D
 My aunt in the black above won.  Her snowman actually looked like a snowman! 

 After the organized games, we split off into groups and played games.  We were attempting to play Taboo here with a buzzer that wouldn't turn off.  We ended up taking out the batteries and playing without it ;)
 Playing ping pong in the basement
And as always, more chit chat!  

It was so nice being able to see all of the family again!  God has so richly blessed me with a great, fun-loving family that I cherish with all my heart!

    2. Haha! Sorry! I meant to say ping pong. That's the Chinese in me coming out! ;) (Not!)
