Minute to Win it!

While most of the Christmas decorating was completed on Friday, we decorated the tree early Saturday morning!

Then this evening we had 2 families over to play Minute to win it.  (or at least our best attempt at it).  We have a lot of fun.  For each challenge we had one person from each family participate.  If they finished the task in 60 seconds they all got one point and if they finished it first they got an extra point.  The first challenge was Rudolph the red nosed reindeer.  The participant had to wear rudolph antlers, put vaseline on their nose, and then using only their nose transfer pompoms from one plate to another.  The person who transferred the most won!
Owen enjoyed all the entertainment!
The next challenge was to unravel 2 rolls of crepe paper in one minute.
Then we had to balance 6 dice on a plastic knife while holding the plastic knife in your mouth. 
Then it was who could build the tallest tower in a minute.
Then it was drink 2 cans of soda to just the right amount left in the can so that the can will balance on its edge.
Next -- golf ball balancing -- we started out with balancing 3 golf balls on top of one another, but that proved to be too hard so we tried 3 sets of 2 balls. 
Then we rolled golf balls into hula hoops (the first one to get 3 balls into a hoop).  Too soft of a roll?  doesn't get over the edge of the hoop.  Too hard a roll?  rolls right out the back!
Then it was stacking 5 baby blocks on top of a plate on top of your head.  This one had a kids round and an adults round.
Then it was cup stacking -- who could build the highest pyramid. 
Then it was 16 piece cereal box puzzles.
And last of all with the score tied 10, 10, 9 we did the last challenge.  Solo cup, plate, 1 portion cup, plate, 2 portion cups, plate -- all the way to 7 portion cups with a plate. 
And Catherine won!!!! 
Then, we got regular white dimpled golf balls and after much persistance and patience-- Trent was able to get all three golf balls stacked!!!   It was a really fun evening!

Love the pictures! We might have to adopt some kids for the next Minute to Win it so I'm not competing against the tiny kids and barely winning:)
