It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Family Fun Goal: Host an Elf Party

 We had a great turn out for our Elf Party this year. Lots of newcomers to participate in the games!

Dad's got involved in this one too! 
Michael didn't even place but my sister came close!

The Chewed gum. Nan chewed all of it within 20 minutes to make this for me. Only a 9 year old could do something like that! 

Winner It's Not Free Candy Contest: Delaney
This was the first time my family attended! My Aunt & Uncle and my Sister, Brother-in-law (all the way from Japan!) and Moo-Moo are catching up and watching the Elf movie here. 

My Mom and Grandmother came. Both were way more competitive than I expected. My mom won the Snowflake cutting contest!
Jo hitting the piñata. After this a few more kids hit it and then it was CRAZY!

I served coffee from Express O Your Love. This sign tells how buying this coffee support the orphan hosting and hopeful adoption of these two girls from Latvia. You can still buy some of this yummy coffee too:
