Minute To Win It- Thanksgiving Style

This month while I was sick and good for nothing except lying around all day, I decided what we needed for Thanksgiving was an activity.  So while I was a blob on the couch, I looked up Minute To Win It party games online and decided on a few of the many out there for our gathering.  It turned out so fun.

We started with Breakfast Scramble.  This is a puzzle of the front of boxes of cereal.  Strangely, this is harder than it sounds.
 Then there was Face the Cookie.  Seriously, so funny.  You have to get the cookie from your forehead to your mouth without using hands.
 Next, we had Shake It.  This is where you have to shake 6 ping pong balls out of a kleenex box.
 Then, we had "This Blows" which requires you to blow 15 dixie cups off the bench with a balloon.
 Penny Hose had us try to reach pennies in each of the feet of a pair of panty hose without using your hands to help the other hand.
Smiley Faces had us use straws to move M&Ms onto a paper plate in the shape of a smiley face.  Two eyes, one for a nose, and five for the mouth.
 Lastly, there was Noodling Around.  This was using uncooked spaghetti noodles to scoop up penne.  6 for adults, 4 for the kids.  No hands allowed- for those of us 8 years old and up.
I had a lot of fun.  Judging from the laughs, I think our guests did too.  I think if we host Thanksgiving dinner in the future, we will do this again.

Once the games were done, I headed to the kitchen.  The turkey had been in the oven for a couple hours, and it was time to whip the rest of it up.  Everyone brought part of the dinner, but it still takes a while to put together.  This was quite a feast!  We drank a lot of Martinellis apple cider too.
 After we were good and stuffed, we needed a little break before digging into the pie.  We had lots, and lots, and lots of pie.
