This year we went to Dani's for TG because we were getting ready for a reception at our house. She did a great job setting the table for 12 people.
Grandma Guttery was the Head Chief and Danica and I filled in the gaps. Notice the ever popular texas sheet cake under glass to be adored while eating the main course.

Everyone needs a good game of Monopoly on TG.

Danica got to do a little skyping with her Fish family. They even played checkers online.
Another look at mine and Dani's attempts at Holiday crafts.
Instead of playing a mean game of cards, we opted for the more gentle tradition of decorating the Christmas tree.
Friday we spent the day Getting ready for Shawn and Aftons reception.
There were a few mishaps throughout the night. Some stray dog showed up for the festivities and Kayla snagged him and we tied him to the front tree to be claimed. We also blew a few circuits with all the lights and roasters plugged into one wall, the pool lights werent working, a scorpion almost got one of the kitchen workers and Bill ended up doing the parking. But all in all, it was a nice night and the food was AMAZING.
Saturday, Tessa took a spill while grass boarding. Lots of blood, but luckily nothing serious. The sweet driver of the quad made these cookies and a sorry note - it seriously wasnt her fault - just a random accident.
That night I lead the Childrens Choir for the Stake Christmas Concert. It was a little scary, but the concert was so beautiful. Breea and Sidney sang a duet and Kayla was part of this quartet.
During all this, Breea had her 15th b-day. Mason and Codey are two of her best buddies and stopped by to pick her up for a b-day pizza lunch that Mikie planned for her. I love her friends.
