This was strange to me....The older kids sat around Odin and watched him play for quite a while. Erin took pictures of Odin.

Dinner was great! Pat brought bison. Jeff cooked roast and steak on the grill.....Perfect. And wonderful side dishes.
Then Jean reallized she didn't have enough steak knives for everyone so Brendan had to go to several neighborhood homes to borrow some!
No more pictures of dinner because we were busy eating and conversing.

            
Time to sing!

            
Featuring Four Calling Birds and Owen and Jim singing Five Gold Rings

I ordered a stuffed, fluffy coffee cup and I thought it was coffee cup size. It wasn't....sigh. Much laughter and Odin liked it

         
A neighbor choose the winner of the Gingerbread House contest. She accidently choose Jean
when we all know Pat was the real winner with the depiction of my house and big garage

      

      
I brought prizes for games but we ran out of time so we had a drawing instead
