Due to the weather the party was moved to Mother & Daddy's house last minute...we had planned to have it out at Pinecroft to be able to have hayrides and fireworks - mother nature said no! We still had a wonderful party, though!
I love this family!!Emma got started early on the baking the day we arrived in East Texas and she & Teta set to work building a gingerbread farmhouse!
Turned out good!
And she used some of the new baking stuff she got from Santa & Teta!
While she did that - I made signs for our photo booth!
Then the day of the party, Dad started off the party by taking away everyone's cell phones! LOL It was really supposed to be just the kids, but then the adults lost theirs, too!
The kids played marble game & the saran wrap game, which is always a hit!
And then the adult game began - our theme this year was Man Cave Gifts (I think maybe a couple She Shed gifts were snuck in, too!! LOL)...and there was lots of stealing and conspiring going on!
The Texas that Damon made stole the show! I've since asked he make me my own!
Riki checking out Michael's gift to see if he wants to steal it!
Food and drinks were definitely plentiful!
And the guys put up heaters in the garage where we had extra tables set up and a photo booth, too!
Miss Kinzley loves her Emma - she won't even come to me when Emma is around!
And Eric was our big winner - winning the right to choose the theme for next year's game...though we all know it'll be Elizabeth that comes up with it! She's so creative I can't wait to hear what it will be!!!
My parents & siblings - I love you all to the moon and back!
For NYE we had a low key night! We got the kids a few fireworks to set off after dark, but by midnight it was just Geddo, Emma, & me that made it to say happy new year...and then I was dozing! LOL
The fog that came in and the smoke made some pretty cool & eerie pics, though!
And I think the fountains are my favorite!
Daddy lighting some while Aaron made a wall of sparklers!
And b/c it's fun to play in the laser lights...we did!
Happy New Year everyone!!
