Mexican Fiesta Christmas Party!!!

We had a Christmas party with some of our friends. We decided to have a Mexican Fiesta party! We had so much good food! Enchiladas, Taco's, Bean Dip, Salsa, and then Courtney even made fried ice cream for dessert!

The boys digging in!

Courtney making the amazing fried ice cream! Seriously as good as it is at restaurants!

The boys watching the Jazz game, Sean, Jason, Shawn, Tom and Brad

Jeff and Chris on the other side of the room

The wifey's! Megan, me, Danielle, Sasha and Courtney

It was so amazing. After we stuffed ourselves with food then we played a game called Cursed. Jason and Sasha brought the game and its one of the best games ever!! Basically all you do is make a fool of yourself..... When its your turn you pick a card and it will have a curse on it and then you give that curse to someone and they have that curse for the rest of the game. For example, I had the hiccups the whole time. So everytime I talked I had to hiccup. Danielle's arms started at the wrist so her wrists were connected to her chest (whish I had a picture of that). Megan had to sign everything she was doing, Courtney had to yell like a drill sargeant whenever she talked....oh it was soooo funny!! Sometimes we'd have 3 to 6 curses at a time! Anyways, its was fun and I can't wait to play that game again!

Annual Gingerbread House!

Every year since I can remember, my family has decorated a gingerbread house. My mom makes the house from scratch so it looks and tastes amazing. In the beginning when this tradition started, my mom used to have control of what went on the house and what it looked like. Now that we are all grown up and have our own kids (well some of us) the grandkids end up decorating most of it. One word to explain gingerbread night-- CHAOS!!! Little tiny hands grabbing m&m's and sticking them on the roof....frosting getting everywhere....slobber getting everywhere because they are eating candy at the same time as they are sticking it on the mom still trying to control it somewhat so that the slobbery candy doesn't end up on the house. My one nephew kept eating candy and then spitting it out because he decided he didn't like it....YUMMMY!!! Nothing like slobbery, half chewed cinnamon bears being put into my hand!

This is my mom helping the grandkids while I stand there with my mouth full of candy....I'm so useles....

Jeffy helping with the roof while the Mr. eats least he is useless too!

We discovered while we were young that the main focus of the house should be to get as much candy on there as possible because then when we break it in January, there will be twice as much candy on there to eat and it will taste so much better (yes, we actually eat a month old gingerbread house with candy on it.....look forward to it every year)! With that being said, it pretty much explains/describes the look of the house this year (and most previous years).

Harding Beebee's....

Thats right. You heard it right. We had a baby! Okay okay, not really a baby but I went to and put in pictures of Shawn and I and it showed us what our babies would look like! I honestly was hoping that they would turn out uglier (for comedic affect) but they didn't turn out too shabby. Okay, they are still a little weird looking, especially the little girls five-head, but I thought it would be worse!

Here is beebee girl with a five-head!

Here comes beebee boy--now don't be scared when you see the roundess of the might bring back memories of a basketball?

I figured if Shawn and I were having kids then Harley might as well right? So I hooked him up with some hot mama and SURPRISE it's HUMAN!!!!! And a construction worker???

at least their daughter is somewhat cute!
