'hood love

i will admit that i love our ward. it is a giant leap from our last ward.
last ward:
"oh are you two new in the ward?"
"no, actually we've been here for about 6 months, but thanks bishop"

we feel like we have made some great friends here in peeg, to celebrate we threw ourselves a raucous holiday fete.

to warm up we played a rousing game of "holiday sausages"-- basically each team asks a question to the other, and the answer always has to be "holiday sausages." it got pretty dirrrty pretty fast. i guess the point is not to laugh. can you guess who won?


next game, which is a lot harder than it looks is to blow up 10 balloons stuff them into nylons and then put on your head promptly singing rudolph the red-nosed reindeer in its entirety.



after a number of games that i was way too into to take pictures-- we opened gifts.
  • i got a fanny pack, russ got some white "breast cancer awareness" sweatbands.

  • the law's got two fish and batteries.

  • the johansson's got a calendar with inappropriate pictures of mr. law and a flour sifter.

  • the atkinson's got glove dryers, and maxi pad slippers.

  • the mccleod's got a white gerbil. ga-ross!

everest modeling the pad slippers.

alas, i don't/shouldn't bake, so we brought delicious sugar cookies with peppermint frosting. thanks smart cookie!
