2nd Annual tree hunt with the Bushman's Last year it was sooooo cold, this year Abby was prepared in all of her winter gear. She's so dang cute!
While we stand in line to get our tag we eat breakfast, drink cocoa, and play around a lot! (Anne Christensen, Bret B, Wyatt B, Allen M, Shauna S.)
One of the games they played this year was "lets see how hard we can flick each other". Poor Anne lost. Check out some of the welts on her neck. It's a good thing she's as tough as nails.
Wyatt's just so cute!
One of the things I love about going is that we always have a great time laughing, just hanging out. (Bret B. & Marissa S.)
Playing in line (Wyatt B, Anne C, Emily B, Allen M & Bret B)
After we got our tags, off we went on our tree hunt. The kids and Annette decided to ride in the back of the trailer. Looks like fun but it also looks cold. (Hayley B, Stephanie S, Abby B, Cutie S, Anne C, Wyatt B, Emily B, and Annette)
We found our tree and I cut it down.
On the way home, the people in our car zonked. (Abby B & Anne C)
We are so glad that the Bushman's have let us join them in this fun family tradition. They are such great friends.
Allen and I had a long Thanksgiving. It started at 4:30 a.m. with our 3rd annual Timp Tri Club bike in movie, where we biked to a two hour movie to burn some pre turkey calories. Then we ran up to my moms house for breakfast at 8:00 a.m. (Noreen, Jake, Allen, and Cameron)
Marri and I were dressed so similar we had to take a picture.
Then at noon we headed over to Alyse's house for lunch with the Bushmans. (Harold B. carving the turkey)
Allen M. & Emily B.
After lunch with the Bushmans we went straight over to the Macbeans (2:30 p.m.) for more turkey and then back over to Alyse's house for games. After games we went to a movie (Four Christmases) with Natalie R, Keena S, Shane M, Bret & Shauna B, Chad & Lindsey H. We didn't get home till almost midnight. It was a long, fun day!
A group of us to together and played games till 3:30 in the morning. We stared with a game called "Would You Rather.....?" It's hilarious! (Lindsey & Natalie)
Bret & Shauna
Chad's brother and sister-in-law
One of the challenges that Allen got was that he had to have a mustache and glasses drawn on his face and stay like that for the reminder of the game. (I was laughing so hard I couldn't draw the glasses straight)
The best one of the night was Bret's. He did an interpretive dance of a cat stalking and pouncing on it's pray. Chad was his pray.
Chad was put in a pose and had to hold it for two rounds.
After that game we headed down stairs for some guitar hero.
Allen and I were invited to the Stake Young Men/Young Women's (Laurel/Priest) activity. We went to Classic Skating. The boys in our ward a hoot! They came out in tight short shorts. They eventually went and put (semi) normal pants on after getting a laugh out of everyone.
Everyone had a great time! Allen and I even got out there and skated up a storm. It has been a LONG time since I've roller skated. WOW!
Lindsey turned a big 25 today. We (Chad, Lindsey, Bret, Shauna, Natalie, Allen & Noreen) went out to dinner at the Olive Garden and then back to the house for games. Noreen, Lindsey, Natalie We played a game called "Would you Rather". Lindsey had to hold a spoon in her mouth for two rounds. So Allen found the biggest spoon we had but then she just put the handle in her mouth. That will show him.
Allen was put in a pose that Natalie put him in for two turns. He had to stand on one leg, touching his nose with one hand and his backside with the other.
Lindsey had to belly dance for 30 seconds.
She tried to make Allen loose his points and his balance by dancing up to him. He was able to hold his composure.
Natalie's challenge was to lap water out of a bowl like a cat for 30 seconds.
She did such a good job.
I was fortunate enough to never receive a challenge, otherwise I'm sure there would be a picture of me doing something silly.
