4th Annual Boyack Family Christmas Partae...

Sleet, ice and snow could not deter the annual family Christmas party! This year it was held at Kim's and there were 25 of us. We decided a brunch at 10:00 a.m. would be perfect and the rest of the day would be involved with last-minute shopping, tubing in the snow and relaxing! Kim and Dan went shopping, the "boys" went tubing and we did the relaxing! Allie and Paige came over for a whopping game of "Sorry" and homemade bread that Allie helped make...she did a darn good job too.

We started the festivities with applesauce pancakes by Charlie, hash brown casserole w/ham by Kim, sausage by Kelli and Dad, fruit compote by Cathy, chocolate milk by Lindy and O.J. by Kellie. It was deelish! Then the boys humored us with a relay race to "don" Santa's beard (via cotton balls and vasoline). Didn't know it could go from innocent to out-and-out cheating, knocking down the opponents cotton ball bowl...really!! was like our Easter egg hunt all over again!) The little ones had 15 seconds to fill their stockings w/trinkets and candy...afterwards they had to give their treasure to the cousin to their left. (The look on their faces).

We had the Christmas Ball of crepe paper with 21 treasures hidden inside go around the room and then the famous WHITE ELEPHANT gift exchange! Tori read the story and we followed our clues to finally end up with our treasured possessions. I can honestly say...I have my gift ready for next year...thanks to Brie and Jay.

Until the next year...Merry Christmas Boyack Family!

Thanks Deb for putting together such a fabulous party! Brian finally got all of the vaseline off his face, but there is still some crusted in his hair. Yummy. It was good to see you guys, hopefully we will see you before next year's party!
