Me and a few of my friends decided to throw together a last minute New Year's Eve party. It ended up being AWESOME. There was a pretty good turnout. It was fun to see some of my friends I haven't seen in awhile, and to see my friends I see a lot :)
We had Elk steak and Moose jerky - compliments of Jeremy G. and Ken. And a whole bunch of other snacks. Then we played a ton of games, but we had to split into two groups to play.
Ken also brought a word search that his cousin made for him ten years ago. He hasn't finished it and was hoping to get some help. The word search is huge- it is 1,000 words and I think, if I remember correctly, that there are 23, 760 letters, give or take a couple hundred. And they are smart words- I bet half of them I don't even know, they're like scientists and stuff. I am starting to think his cousin is a genius. I got a little overwhelmed, so I made a goal of finding one a year. I found one word in time for 2010, and I found another word I'm counting for 2011 haha.
At midnight we went outside- from my porch we could see fireworks going off all over the valley. It was cool. We tried to sled down a pathetic hill, but it didn't work, we just got really cold. Then we went inside and found a game all of us could play (one of my all time favorites) - SIGNS.
Everyone got super into it and we had a blast! I love that game. Chelsey, Megan and I play it all the time up at school, so we are pretty good at passing our signs back and forth really fast which makes the game really fun. Andee's husband, Tyson, giggled like a girl through the whole thing- haha it was the best.
I think we ended that game around 2 o'clock in the morning when some of the people started to leave. The rest of us sat around and talked for a couple more hours. For some strange, unknown reason, Chelsey, Megan and I had a sit up competition at 3:30 in the morning. CHelsey and I tied (I guess... But really, I won... haha). We both did 55 sit ups. Then we just leaned back at forty five degree angles. I think I won that one. And I think I won the planks too... haha who knows. It was too late to do anything like that. We're crazy. My abs finally started to get sore today.
