Twister Fun

Beth and Kelli

The guys lasted a long time - except Lane

Saturday night was so much fun. We had friends over for dinner. Great food, great conversation, lots of laughter! Our friends were inspired by one of my previous blogs and decided that we should play twister. The men went first. They lasted a long time. I was impressed. I got lots of amusing pictures. The women went next. We didn't last nearly as long. The kids wanted to get in on the fun. Caleb had a definite advantage with his long legs and long arms. We ended the night by playing Catch Phrase. It's a fun game - especially when Kelli is playing. She really gets into it and is very animated. One of the things I am most thankful for during this holiday season is our wonderful friends. Love you guys! Looking forward to many more nights of living, loving and laughing together.

December Craziness

The last two weeks have been crazy busy! I love Christmas but I'm pretty much worn out already and it's only the middle of the month. We've had multiple Christmas parties, a winter band concert, a Christmas program at church, along with decorating our house, wrapping presents, etc... Thankfully, we've had most of our shopping done for a while now. I finally got around to taking pictures of the boys in their Santa hats (a yearly tradition). We usually do it the first part of December but we've been too busy. This week will be a little less busy but we've still got two basketball practices and Joshua and Jacob have their school Christmas parties on Friday.
Caleb will probably have some finals this week since it's their last week of school before Christmas break. He's excited because he gets to go spend some time in Missouri with his friend, Kyle, over the break. It's definitely a challenge to focus on the real reason for the season amidst all of the craziness but I'm sure going to try.Posted by Picasa

When are you too old for Twister?

I thought everyone might get a kick out of these pictures. They were actually taken the end of October but I just received them recently. The boys were playing Twister at their grandparents house. Kenneth got the crazy idea that he and I should play. Needless to say, the boys were greatly entertained (as were Kenneth's parents and his aunt - she took the pictures). The game didn't last very long. I finally gave up because I just couldn't hold my position any longer. I don't know if there is an age limit on the box but it's definitely harder to play Twister when your body no longer bends like it used to. Oh, the joys of getting older!
