Also Tad's nephews did their own rendition of Twas the Night Before Christmas. It was hilarious. Then Debbie and my dad broke out in song. If you didn't know my mom and dad both play the accordian (except I don't think you could get my mom to play). So they played a couple songs. Then the rest of us sang Christmas carols including the correct version of Joy to the World.

Friday we had a party at the Mitchell's. Lots of good food and great stories from Kim. Kim's an ER nurse so lots of interesting stories.
Saturday had the cloggers up for a party. Joey was in town so we got to see him for a little bit. I'm so excited that he is finally done with dental school this spring so maybe we'll see him more often. Here's a shot of some of the group.
The adults exchanged white elephant gifts. There were some real winners like some solar vinyl shorts. Here we are all ready to exchange gifts. Addy if you look carefully you can see the new haircut.
Someone brought some brownie things that were dipped in chocolate then candy cane crumbs on the outside. I need a recipe. I tried one because Blakely was going to town on them and they are SO GOOD. So if you brought them could you please share the recipe.

Here's Logan before we cut his hair again. His hair will only stay curly for a little bit. Here were some of our Christmas outtakes. I liked this one better than the one we sent out but Tad didn't like Logan's face. This is his "Whoa!" face.

It was really easy I just enlarged a diagram that I found online to use a template for the leaves and tree. Here is the link.

The best thing that happened over Thanksgiving is I got some new ski boots. I went to the Fuller Ski Swap and picked up some new boots. Tim and Kirsten are the best. So that means I'm all ready to go this winter. So, if anyone wants/needs to go skiing, I'm available. You just have to go to Park City because that is where my pass is at.

D kept asking the leaders, I know there is some kind of trick but can't figure it out. It was so funny.
Even though decorating was a lot of work and I had help from all of the other leaders. We could have never pulled off this activity without all our great volunteers. I even heard that a few of them enjoyed the evening. Below are just some of the volunteers.
Craig was in charge of the putting booth. He also was the one to throw the killer neighborhood tailgate party last Friday. He's helped out the YW before by coming up to girl's camp for the first time ever. He was fun to have at camp and try to eat all the weird things we'd cook up.
Ray, the Anti-Blogger was there to help and his game was just jumpin'.

Girl's Camp or Camping in General - We need to get booking our camp for next year. Name some good campgrounds that are not much more than an hour away but still are a lot of fun. We are also looking into the idea of maybe going near a lake so if there are good campgrounds by any lakes you know of also let me know.
Personal Progress Activities - Has anyone had some fun and/or good activities that got the YW to work on their personal progress goals?
Special Needs YW/YM Activity - In May I'm in charge of an YW/YM activity that is with the special needs mutual. There could be anywhere from 150-200 youth at this activity so things can get costly pretty quick and that large number also limits what we can do. Any suggestions?
Snow Suits - Anyone seen any snow suits for little boys that are size 2T? I'd prefer a one piecer but at this point I'd be happy to find anything. I’m starting to think it’s illegal to make a one piece boy’s snowsuit.
Amazing Race - Who is your least favorite team on AR? Mine is Terrence and Sarah. I can't stand him. You should ask Tad about him he gets so upset with him when he watches that show. Also I was sad to see the divorcees go because I loved seeing how bitter, stupid and immature they were.
Clogger Question - Does anyone know if/when Joey, Tyler G. and Shaun-boy are coming to town, if at all this Christmas?
Also I've quit Grey's Anatomy. I haven't liked any of the characters for awhile now and it's just the worst story lines I've ever seen. I watch a lot of trash tv but it was getting to be a little too much for me. I'd also get so mad that McDreamy was with Meredith because she seriously is no catch. It was a hard decision but after the first week of not watching I really wasn't missing anything at all. It’s now been 3 weeks Grey’s free.

I thought Rosalie could have been bitchier but maybe the second time I'll think she's fine. Wish Jacob had been on there more. Also there were some film things that I noticed they goofed on but I won't mention them because then you'll notice them and it will bug you too.
So after we went to the movie we came back to my house and had lunch. It was really good probably mostly because Brittany helped make one of the soups. Also if you haven't tried Costco's Double Chocolate Creme Pie do it. I'd never tried it and it's amazing. I also made these magnets for everyone that came.
As part of the whole celebration of Twilight coming out and that the studio gave the official clearance to release New Moon, I'll give away 2 sets of these magnets. You can sign up to win until Wednesday at 5:00. Just post a comment to this post and I'll draw a winner sometime over the Thanksgiving break.
