Candy bar Christmas game

We had a fun Christmas party with a few friends and played a pretty fun game! So to play this game you need some candy bars wrapped in newspaper a few times and taped really good. A bag of shredded paper, dice, a hat, gloves, and a scarf. You will also need a really good vacuum cleaner. In a circle you put the bag with candy bars inside. Each person tries to roll doubles. First person to roll doubles puts on gloves, hat, and scarf and tries to find candy bar and starts to unwrap. Then if someone rolls a double the person trying to get to the candy bar drops everything and the next person puts on all the stuff and starts until someone else rolls a double. If you get the candy bar unwrapped you get to keep it. Oh man this was fun and messy too! I highly recommend it!! Stacey and Scott made the haul with two each, and I got one too! Although everyone thinks I cheated to get mine, but if you know me I never cheat!! Here's Kara's try at it. I got a picture of everyone but me and Adam... sorry Adam!
Pete's try... poor guy only got a couple tries, not very lucky in rolling doubles! :)
Justin got a few turns.
Scott's the king of rolling doubles, and works quite well with gloves on :)
I vote Hollie cutest in that hat! :)
I vote Stacey "scariest" in this hat!! ha ha J/K I do LOVE this face! You can tell she's having fun!
Here's where it gets messy!
Jack, Jack and Will having fun with the shreds of paper!

Stacey's loot!
Scott's prize's
Okay so we also did a white elephant game. I got my camera out a little late cause boy was it a funny one!!! Adam got ours slippers made of pads...
but I guess Justin wanted them more, and he ended up with them. I don't think any of us will forget these white elephant gifts. Hollie and Adam have quite the sense of humor however I'm not going to share that story, its one that will just have to stay with us :) Such a fun night, thanks friends for being so great!! We are so lucky to have such great friends out here to keep our minds off missing home and family! Love you all!

So fun to catch up on your blog! Sounds like such a fun party, we will definitely have to try that game! Looks like a real mess maker though. My kids totally missed going to the farm park this year and making their toy with the elves. That is such a fun christmas activity. Your boys are getting so big!

HAHAHAHA those slippers are awesome. I can't stop laughing. You certainly are a crazy bunch. I'm sorry we missed the Santa's Boot Camp. I'm still kicking myself for that one. I can't believe how many kids you had there.
