Fun and games

We have been Christmas crazy over at our house. I LOVE this time of year, everything is so exciting and full of magic.
We have been wrapping presents, drinking hot cocoa, making snow forts and having snowball fights. This year I have 2 kids in school so making treats for their friends and teachers has been major time consuming! Connor has 12 in his class and 25 for Ellie. I have made A LOT of these!!So we needed a break! Scott and I went out on a date night with our friends Scott and Cassie and came home to play games. I thought I would just put the kids to bed so we could have a quiet night... but did I mention that Scott and Cassie are some of my kids favorite people!!
And for some strange reason :) they like our crazy kids too. So we all played games together. This game is a long time tradition in the Mortenson family. My Dad has played it with all of my sisters and I and all of our friends. If you ever had my dad for seminary, you too may have played this game.
It's called the Flour Game and you have to make a tight mound of flour and put a piece of candy on top. We used whoppers this time. You each take a turn shaving off the flour with a knife without making the candy fall. If it does.......You have to get it with your mouth!!! No hands!





We love you Stevens!!! Thanks for being such good sports!

I totally love the marshmellow idea. I am looking for a Christmas handout, can I copy? What does it say?

I needed a pick-me-up tonight, and your blog did the trick! I love to read abut all the things you guys are doing. I'm sad I didn't get to hear Ellie sing with Scott, though. I'm a big fan.

Jaime you have such a cute family! You are a good mommy, I still can't believe number 4 is on the way! I always remember you telling me you wanted 4 children and i thought you were nuts, but after seeing you with your kiddos,you can do it! I'm so proud of my little Jaime! Merry Christmas! Love you
