Family Christmas Party 09

It is always a blast to get together with just my siblings, their spouses, and my parents, and have some good ole fun. This year it was at Trav and Kalees and we ate yummy mexican food. We didn't do any fun Christmas games which I really missed, but it was still fun to be with everyone. This was the first year that we weren't able to ALL be there. Jody and Chantel had a trip to Vegas already planned, and Melanie was doing a 10k run in Tucson. We missed them and hopefully everybody will be able to be there next year. I have been blessed with an amazing family!!!!

Here are my 4 favorite photos of the night...

Courtney with her Christmas Banana!!

My dad with his gag gift!

Tim opening this snuggie was the funniest thing of the night. He was SOOO mad. But Jami redeemed getting his gag gift by winning some Torreon Golf tickets!!

Jake and Courtney won the 'good' gift I brought to the party. The blocks of this quilt were my Grandma Porters that she had already cut out and had pinned together. I decided the Sunday before that I was FINALLY going to do something with those quilt blocks and put together this rag quilt. I think it turned out gorgeous...and it for sure had everybody fighting over it and was the hit of the night!!! After putting all the time and hard work into it, it was hard to let it go!!
