Nothing like ringing in the new year with an amazing meal, wonderful friends, chilled champagne…. and minute to win it games. Yea, you heard that right. I was a little skeptical when I first heard that we would be playing Minute to Win It games (maybe cos I am biased against the show because Guy Fieri drives me bonkers?)… but it turned out to be hilarious and fun. Caroline brought over the list of games as well as all the props we’d need – and we competed boys vs. girls in games like Face the Cookie, Defying Gravity, Dizzy Mummy and Extreme Hanky Panky.
If the idea of emptying an entire Kleenex box with one hand sounds easy…. try it. Go ahead.
Also, my husband apparently has incredibly dexterous facial muscles as he absolutely dominated Kate in the cookie game. Who knew?
Besides the few rounds of hilarity (of which I think the boys won?), we had an incredibly yummy dinner made by Kate and Charlie.
And we rang in the new year with sparklers…
Cheers to 2012!
