Party Caveman Style

Hooray! My fabulous friend lent me a card reader so I could finally pull these pictures off my camera (thanks Kathy, it worked!)



The night before I flew to visit family, my friend threw an awesome theme party. In fact, I purposefully scheduled my flight the next day so I would be sure not to miss it. I spent the night before making my costume but realized I was seriously underdressed as I drove up and saw the Ansons:
Heather (Party Hostess Extraordinaire) puts this huge party together every year. I don't know what past party themes have been, but I was oh so happy it was 'Caveman' this year so LeAnn could scheme Randy into this getup: (yeah, that's SUPER glued on!)


We split into teams and went through a series of challenges--here are the first groups learning they have to suck a chicken bone clean then try and toss it in a kiddie pool across the yard:

This is one of my favorite 'old' couples. I use the term loosely because they are too hilarious and fun to be deemed old. This picture captured one of my favorite moments of the night. I missed the instructions for this particular challenge because I was just inside the door taking care of Hayden. I watched these ladies struggle putting together this little dinosaur, and truly, it did look hard. But when it was all over (probably a good 20-30 minutes later) I heard someone say "Come on! It says for ages 4-6 on the box!"

That sure was a fun night!! Thanks for being willing to bring over some rolls!! (Maybe you could mail me some!!) I am doing ok. It is just so sad. My brother tried to cheer me up by saying that it was his time because he was "ready" he had done all the important things god wanted him to do: serve a mission, and get married in the Temple. I know that is true, but it still seems unfair. I can hardly breath as I am typing this just thinking of his poor wife of 1 month!! He really was a great kid and will be greatly missed. Hope you are having a great time, don't worry you aren't missing out on running group, we haven't gone since you left. My ankle is barley getting better and Jeanine is pregnant!! GINA

Let it be said that I didn't let Jeanine's secret out of the bag. And everyone thinks I share everything :) Heather

That looks like an absolute blast. I loved everyone's outfits. I want to go to a party like that...but I don't want to be the one to plan it!
