Every year for the past 20 years or more we have had a Christmas party for our friends. It is always a very fun event with a certain theme. This year however had to be the craziest funniest party yet with our very weird theme,
"WHAT IN THE HECK IS THAT!"
|The men enjoyed a visit also.|
Everyone brought a treat or dish. We even had a dish that was "What in the heck is that?" It was Osso Buco . That was a first as we all got to taste this differnt food, OSSO BUCO!
After a short Devotion on "What in the Heck is it?" from the Bible, (Mana, the burning bush and the moving star) and a prayer, we enjoyed many delitious snacks and drinks.
One way to get everyone to look at the Christmas tree is make it into a game!
Then we had a game with many strange items passed around for each to guess "What in the heck is it?"
Lots of conversation and guessing going on.
|There were even strange foods to taste and guess "What in the heck is it?"|
One of our party guests named the 3 taste items,
"YUC #1, YUC #2, and YUC # 3.
It was so fun listening to some of the weird guesses.
Time to open the anonymous wrapped gifts. We were all very confused about the traveling "BEE" It just didnt appear that it could be in any of the packages. Then Cal opened his little pkg and low and behold, there was a note.
And Rich brought in the big box as you can see below. What in the heck is it?
|I love all those colorful ? ? ? ? ? on the box.|
The traveling BEE had been turned into a big yellow question mark. Needless to say this brought out some hearty laughter and chuckles. Funny thing is, Cal had been so careful in previous years to "NOT GET THE BEE".
The next few pictures are of some of the other "What in the heck is it" gifts.
|REALLY? A SUGAR BEET?|
Now that is a "REAL" YUC!
|A real corn husker from Nebraska.|
Such a fun party and great friends.
Our next party will have the theme,
AWAY IN A MANGER.
Jeff built a stable for our home made Nativity figures. He used scrap wood that he already had in the garage. It only took him a few hours. Now we can display the true message of Christmas in our yard. Our true, best gift was our Savior Jesus Christ came to us as a baby to save us from our sins that all who believe and are Baptized. What a joy it is to know our sins have all been paid for (in full) by our loving sinless Jesus. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS.
|Jeff and I had crab legs for Christmas. Our gifts were on the table, not under the tree.|
