Happy Weirdsgiving!

Since two of our closest college buds decided to temporarily relocate to Panama 2 years ago (has it really been that long?!?!), our old college group doesn't get to be complete that often anymore. But, we have them back in town for a little while so we decided to start a new annual tradition with our group. It's called Weirdsgiving. It will always be around Christmas/ New Years and everyone has to come up with an activity to contribute to the day. It started around 11 am and didn't end until 3 or 4 am (I didn't quite make it that long). We still weren't 100% complete because Kelly didn't make it (for some reason she didn't want to drive from Brenham after a long day being 8 months pregnant :) - missed you).
There were various weird activities, and lots of YUMMY food, and I didn't get pictures of all of them, but for example, we played a 2 on 2 basketball tournament in the dining room using Tyson's basketball goal. On our knees. Wearing pajama pants and/or home made knee pads so we wouldn't completely tear our knees up. It was fun, but everyone was complaining about their knees hurting afterwards. Guess we're getting old. I do have video of this but since my laptop doesn't like my video camera (still), it may be awhile before it makes it on here.


Anthony and Micah wrote and performed a song for us (about us) :)
We also played hours and hours of Rock Band II (not pictured)

I'm not going to try to explain the next couple of pictures. You just had to be there.



This one is not from Weirdsgiving but I had to include it, it was too cute. Tyson loves his Uncle Kykle. He rarely holds hands with people. (awwww....)

What an amazing group of people. I wish I were as smart, creative, good looking, innovative, and all around cool as those guys.
