Every year John and I try to do something to surprise the kids.  They give us a wish list each year and we try our best to get those things.  And then we try to come up with a game with gifts to surprise them.  
This year we had a game where each couple had to pick a grocery item and tell us how many of them would add up closest to $30.00 without going over.   Missy and Andy won with $28.80.  Every other couple went over.   They all got the groceries that they were able to bid on and taped to one of the back of one of the items was a $30.00 gift card to one of their favorite restaurants.    They had a great time.

The kids had to sing a song for everyone and the girls all got a unstuffed Build-a-Bear and a gift card to take them back to stuff them.  Addi got a box full of his favorite snacks.    I think the girls were afraid they would have to take their bears back and give them back.   But all seemed really happy.   

We also got each of the big girls a craft to do over 2012.  Caitlin and Micah got scrapbooks and supplies.  Missy is making a game crate for the kids games.  Andrea, I wasn't sure and what she wanted so I gave her a new glue gun and gift card to Michaels.

  1. This was such a good idea! I went home and told my parents about the game and they thought it was such a cute idea! I am SO excited to use my scrapbook and become as crafty as you! I've already gone to Hobby Lobby and Michaels to gather some supplies for pages i'm going to add! THANKS!
