|Grab a name tag. First write your name and then your Elf Name. Believe it or not we had two Clumsy Candy Canes! Must have been a lucky name because they both were new this year and they both won a game!|
|chug, chug, chug|
|Julie the Elf who is able to chug a bottle of coke the fastest!|
|One ginormous candy bar|
|Just a sample of the food.|
|I have a Lite Brite out each year. I had one as a kid but picked this one up at garage sale. The kids love it!|
|Nan and Mickey. I can't believe that Mickey is old enough to attend (and drive!) to our house on her own.|
|Christmas sweaters, Elf Costumes, Santa hats, and funny headbands are encouraged. N1 models her double santa head band while sampling some food. At first she refused to try anything but soon, I caught her snacking!|
|Alina is our Cotton- Headed Ninny Muggins...I mean the winner of the cotton ball eating contest!|
Cotton Ball Eating Game
In the doctor’s office, Buddy eats several cotton balls. We are not going to eat actual cotton balls but instead marshmallows!
Elf Serving Size Guessing Contest
Buddy: We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.
|Shannon must have an eye for the 4 Elf Food Groups!|
Snowflake Cutting Contest
Gimbel's Manager: This, is the North Pole.
Buddy: No it isn't.
Gimbel's Manager: Yes it is.
Buddy: No it isn't.
Gimbel's Manager: Yes it is!
Buddy: No it isn't! Where's the snow?
|The 4 girls who came the furtherest for the party (all 4 are being hosted through NHFC) were our guest judges this year. They awarded Linda the prize for best snowflake!|
Buddy’s Breakfast Contest
Emily: You like sugar, huh?
Buddy: Is there sugar in syrup?
Buddy: Then YES!
|N2 not actually participating in the game. Later she helped her self to some leftover noodles but added ketchup.|

|And Alina is in for another win! She is the Elf able to guess the flavors of "not free candy"|
|This year's addition: a cotton candy machine!|
|N2 and N1 enjoying cotton candy!|
|Hanging out with their new friends. There are 5 Eastern European kids who are currently being hosted or have been hosted and are not adopted at this party! How cool is that????|
