More White Elephant

Jordan has been wanting to host his own white elephant party for years so this year we finally decided to do one for his birthday party!  We took a lot of pictures for their gifts that you will see as you scroll down but I thought a lot of these were fun so I had to include them!
















Jordan put his face on a pillow case and included some sleep things.









Brady made his own "nerd" box with smarties, nerds, a calculator, bow tie and his very own framed nerd picture! He loves to embrace his nerdism and all their friends know it!

White Elephant

After a 4 year break, we finally hosted another one of our annual White Elephant Parties.  The picture above is the full shot of what we used in our gift....Sam didn't mind posing at Five Guys for that shot!

I think everyone had a lot of fun and there were some great gifts but of course I didn't take any pictures!  I actually texted my friends that took home our gifts that night so I could get a picture of something to post!  Our first gift is the pig collection!  The pig sings and dances to "I'm too sexy" and we incuded some bacon pop rocks, bacon toothpaste and bacon air freshener.

This next picture shows our friend scaring his kids with the duck dynasty costume he took home!

And this is our other gift...a really cool hamburger shirt and hat hamburger hat along with this amazing picture of Sam eating a burger!  At least we were nice enough to include an In 'n Out gift card!


There were some other cool gifts, too many to name, but I did snag this picture from a friend's instagram feed after the party!  Hopefully, we will keep up this tradition again now that we've finally done it down here, because we have such a good time!

Tucker's birthday

Tucker turned seven and we enjoyed the day as a family.  Well, Sam had to work but we made sure to open presents before Sam left and then he was able to meet us for lunch at TGI Fridays.   Tucker's main gift was Disney Infinity 2.0 Avengers.

Tucker picked Kolby and Eden to come to lunch with him!
After lunch, the kids met some friends at the school playground and had fun hanging out with them for a while. (Tucker's hands are showing off his new birthday shirt from the birthday box.


The boys were with me at the store the day before and decided that we should get Tucker his own little cake.  He loved it of course!




Tucker wanted homemade pizza for his birthday dinner, and Kolby was so nice to volunteer to make the pizzas.  He had recently learned to make them in his home ec. class at school so he was excited to use his new skills!
