I love to celebrate on New Year's Eve, but Kyler('s family) tends to go to bed early. So I took it upon myself to create a distraction to keep the Gray clan up, and it ended up being more fun than I, and hopefully everyone else, anticipated. Insert: The 2010 Couples Olympics!
The contenders: Kristoffer and Dana, Emily and Zach, Anique and Kamaron, Kyler and me, and Kelli and Austin. I'm not sure we could've had a more competitive group for our little competition. Kyler and I planned a medly of minute-to-win-it type games that lasted around a minute each (hence the name). And we also had plenty of traditional games. Because it was couples olympics, as Kyler would say, teams were only as strong as its weakest member.
The evening turned out to be great fun, and it kept everyone wide awake to ring in the new year, which was my ultimate goal. Now for a recap of the evening:
Toilet Paper Roll-Off
Timed Puzzle Assembly
Pedometer Race :)
Keep Balloons Up
All night we kept a score board, and at the end of the night the winners were announced. Kristoffer and Dana are the reigning champs. Prizes were distributed, and then we popped open the Sparkling Red Grape Juice, just in time to see the countdown to 2011!
|Everyone sporting the placement in the competition!|
|Just plain goofiness!|
|Happy New Year to family and friends!|
