Food, family, and fun. That's what we did this year for Thanksgiving.
After we thoroughly stuffed ourselves, it was time for a couple of activities. I have managed to earn a reputation for finding fun and easy games (well deserved or not, who knows) and so Kim asked me to bring a couple. First off was Open The Heavily Wrapped Gift Challenge. One person tries to open a wrapped gift wearing pot holders, and the person in front of them in line rolls two dice until they get doubles. Then they get to have a go at the present, and the next person rolls the dice.
Once we got into that box, there were two more to go.
After that was throwing as many marshmallows into a bucket as you could in one minute. The distance was adjusted for each. We started with the youngest (Annie and Maddie) and worked our way to oldest.
You can see we were listening to Christmas music on the tv.
The arrow points to a marshmallow stuck into the corner. I thought I should get a point for that one for style.
And that was it for the entertainment. We sat around and talked until it was time to go home.
