Tape Ball Christmas Party!

None of us had a clue what battle lines were to be drawn at this Christmas party…it all started out with good cheer and merriment!20110009

School was out, Christmas was just 2 days away and everyone was ready to let their hair down after the craziness of getting everything ready for the big day! 


Nothing like a glass of wine and a good visit between family friends!


Everyone brought a dish to share for dinner…the Chic-fil-a Nugget platter was inhaled by 5 teenage boys


but the girls didn’t mind…they got to party in their own room!


My friend’s house was beautifully decorated for Christmas…but what was that tacky red and green centerpiece on the kitchen table?


We were told that was our after dinner entertainment…


and the tape ball game rules were given to ALL of us…adults and kids alike.


Hmmm…most of the parents were skeptical…what’s the big deal??


What we didn’t know was that there were literally hundreds of little toys, prizes, candies, movies, money and more stuck together with clear wrapping tape inside the ball and we each had a few seconds to pull tape off and try to get out a prize before the next person grabbed it for their turn.


Little ones were excited…big kids were playing it cool…


until we discovered how much fun this was…and how badly we wanted our little prizes inside that ball!


Things started getting rough…brother against sister, husband against wife,


around and around the ball was passed, grabbed, tossed and drug to us so we could collect our lute!  What a blast!  Great idea for family reunions, birthday parties and lot’s more!  We were exhausted at the end and ready for Christmas to come!
