Ward Family Festivus
Before the festivities, Grandpa played in the garage and Jeff put the finishing touches on his homemade gift
The gifts under the tree....the fireplace with Santa's cookie plate....opening gifts
Opening more gifts
Yet more gifts. Jeff really liked his fish mail box!
The first Survivor Game involved opening boxes and putting a puzzle together in under four minutes.
Since Becky and Bill tried the hardest, they won the fake $25.00 Gift Certificate
The second Survivor Game consisted of spinning a wheel and eating horrible food.
For example, I ate a grasshopper, a pizza roll with peanut M & M's in it....yuck!
Becky had one filled with horseradish. Kathy shows her tongue because the eating was timed.
Terry shows his tongue. Kathy and Jeff had an eat off and Jeff won!
Daphne enjoyed her first Christmas!
We opened the homemade gifts. Terry read a very heart-felt poem from Jimmy
(it was ghost-written by Laura) and we all cracked up!
Back upstairs, we played a Murder Mystery Game. Jimmy was happy that Jeff was the murderer!
Terry and Simba played Roy Horn, Hannah showed us her mean face and Jeff napped with Hello Kitty
