Last Christmas Party of the Season!

On Saturday we got to go to Grandma and Grandpa Schvaneveldt's house for our final Christmas Party. As usual, the season ended on a high note! It is always fun to spend the day at Grandma's house. She makes the best food and has such yummy treats, and always thinks of the best presents!

We started off with some pizza, soup, and a bunch of different salads. If you couldn't find something you liked, you must just be too picky!

Then we opened presents. The kids each got a jean quilt made just for them by Grandma-Great. They even had their names stitched on them. My kids broke them out as soon as we got home. Hannah snuggled down in hers and said, "Oh, I just love this blanket. It smells like Grandma's house, and Grandma's house smells so good!"

All of the adults at the party got to pick out of a huge pile of goodies from Sam's Club. we ended up with a huge box of fruit snacks and 18 rolls of potty paper! She also made each family a bag of raisin cookies, some chews, and licorice caramel's! WOOHOO! Grandpa made us each a cool horseshoe drink holder. I must say that I have been coveting the one he has at his house for a while now, so I was pretty excited to have my own! Thanks Grandpa!

Mandy made a DVD of all the family for Grandma, and Jeremy got Grandpa's old saddle redone.

The kids all played Bingo and got a prize, then the adults played the candy bar game. David and I ended up with six candy bars between the two of us, so we didn't do too badly! After that it was just visiting and snacking! It was the perfect ending to all our Christmas festivities! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Sch, we sure had a good time!
