Happy Birthday Andi!!!!!

Chris was there!!!!!!!!!
I will make my disclaimer now-
Some of these pics are a little blurry.
The ones I am not posting are even worse.
Gee- and to think I was minutes away from being perfect.
I HAD to blog this pic.
I told Ty that when a person
makes faces at my camera they
risk having the face shown to the world.

Perusing the pictures Chris took
of Derek and Andi for their
engagement announcements.
Very pleased with the artistic quality.

It's a birthday celebration!
There must be candles to blow out.
Notice the salad on Derek's place?
We try to spoil him.

Derek's family came over for dinner and games.
My favorite game was one where every person writes the name of 5 people well known to the group on 5 slips of paper. The papers are put into a bowl. People sit in a circle, every other person is on the same team. The bowl starts with one person who pulls a slip out, reads it to themselves and then must describe to everyone else who this person is without disclosing the name. Once that team guesses the person correctly the player pulls out another slip and repeats until the predetermined time has expired. We did 30 seconds. Then the next person/team starts their round. When everyone has had a turn each team counts the points they have thus far- determined by the amount of correct guesses. The papers are put back in the bowl and round two proceeds as the first except this time the person reading the papers may only say one word. Round three proceeds as the second only this time there are no words, just actions.
It was very fun to meet some of Derek's family and spend an evening laughing and celebrating Andi.
