We had our Home Team/Small Group Christmas Party this last Saturday. We had so much fun! We had a holiday feast with a Tur-Duc-Hen (A hen stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey), fresh green beans, home made rolls, twice-baked baked potatoes, and tons and tons of yummy appetizers before hand.
After dinner we all made Gingerbread Houses. It was so much fun!
Andy and Brittany made a traditional gingerbread house which turned out super cute.
I love the fence made out of bones! (I think they got a snoppy kit).
Justin and Kristen made a log cabin complete with a bay window in the back.
Look how cute their wreath on the door is!
See the bay window in the back? Very clever!
Jake and Kristi made a gingerbread house with iciles hanging from the roof and a garage.
If you look closely their is a pebble rock path made out of chocolate rocks. Awesome!
My sister Michelle, and Drew got very creative and made a boxing ring with fighting gingerbread men!
They even have spectators sitting around the ring eating buttered popcorn!
They made a sign that says 'John 3:16'! Spiritual boxing!
Steven and I made a log cabin with a basketball hoop and a tire-swing in the front yard. We were planning on having an A-Frame roof, but it just would not hold up so we opted for a flat roof instead. My sister took a picture of Steven and I next to our completed house but for some reason its not on our camera anymore. My camera was acting funny around that time and it must have deleted that picture. That makes me so mad! So we only have this one of us, making our gingerbread house. What a bummer!
Steven did such a good job on the basketball hoop! And the tire-swing is off to the left. Pretty cool if I could say so myself! And those were all his ideas!
Santa even visited our house! He is on the roof next to the chimney. (If you notice our tire-swing fell down at this point and would NOT stand back up).
It was such a fun night and it was sad to see our creations go in the trash afterwards but none of us wanted to take them all the way home. That is why we have pictures! Thanks Andy and Brittany for hosting it at your house! I can't wait for next years party (by then we'll have a little baby crawling around)!
