Ornament Exchange Party

My sister and I decided to start our very own family ornament exchange party this year. It was our first and it was a BIG success! It was so fun getting our grandma, aunt, mom, Stephen's mom.. Ginger, my sisters husband's mom... Sue, all together for a little Christmas fun. We hope to do this every year.

We had FAMILY, FOOD, and FUN games. Apparently thats all you need to make sure this family has fun. We can't wait till next year. I have to give my sister big credit for opening her home and decorations and providing half the food. She worries about making it perfect.. and because of her it ALWAYS DOES!! :)

The reason we LOVE OUR MOM! :)

For our game... we played the "Wright Family Game". The host usually reads the story and the people playing the game get to pass a gift around the circle. You have to listen to the words of the story... every time you hear the word "right, you must pass it to your right. Every time you hear left, you must pass it to your left. At the end of the story...whoever it ends on... WINS the gift.

Have you ever been Letter Boxing? Do you know what it is??
Well.. I got the chance to participate in one this week on our PORT ARANSAS VACA! My sister-n-law has found a new love for this game and I jumped right in on the HUNT! :) well sort of!

LetterBoxing: You pretty much go to the website and look for locations where people have hidden some type of tupperware box with a stamp and notepad inside. You take your notebook and stamp to this location and follow the clues to find their box. Once you find their box you "stamp" your stamp inside their notepad and write your name inside and where you are from, and then take their stamp in the box and stamp it in YOUR NOTEPAD! After you did all these steps you put their notepad and their stamp back inside the Tupperware and RE-HIDE IT :) Pretty neat hu?

If you have never heard of letterboxing you can check out this website...

We traveled around to 3 different locations in Port Aransas looking for these STAMPS & notepads following all the clues but we were not having much luck until we came to our 3rd location.
We had to break a tree, remove tall grass, and try not to get bitten from a snake! :) While I'm standing in the background getting bit by ants! HA ha
It was CRAZY.. but I was so happy ANNIE finally found the box! She stamped and collected their stamp... then we all decided to leave all of our thumb prints inside their notepad letting them know it took ALL OF US to find their box! We laughed, complained, laughed some more, and sweated... but dag gummit... we FOUND THE BOX! HA
