Going away party for Kylee and new game

My youngest sister Kylee left to move to North Carolina today so last night I had a going away party for her. We had lots of yummy food and played tons of fun games like on of my new favorites "Run Wild". I'm glad we could all get together one last time and have such a fun time before she left, wish Maren was there though. I love you Kylee and I'll miss you so much! Thanks for being the awesome, generous, kind, helpful sister that you are! Drive safe and come home soon. 
Nate and Angela gave us a fun new game for Christmas and we decided to play it.  It's one of the funnest games I've played or watched being played.You've got to try it!! Who's up for a game night? They renamed the game Dodgehead which is more fitting, the main game you play with it is throwing the balls at the head of the person wearing the velcro hat. We played a version that's in the instructions and then made up our own which was super fun!
I've found it on Amazon if you want to check it out.

Here are some pics of the kids playing the version the game came with. You blindfold the player and put the velcro hat on their head then you time them while their team shouts directions of where to go to find the balls the other team hid on the floor.

 Kendyl (who just got her tonsils out yesterday, she didn't play much at all)
 Cameron, he was the winner with 43 seconds.

We made up our own version where 2 of us are blindfolded and try to race to get the most amount of balls, this is the first race, it's between Carrie and Kylee! Maybe you had to be there to think these are funny, maybe not. I'm still laughing!!! Oh and before I'm disowned as a sister, let me remind all my sisters before you say you're disowning me that you knew I was recording for my blog. :D

Here is a movie I made from all of it, after this video are the individual videos if you want to watch them. Sorry they're so dark.

This next video is Tina and I racing each other. That is so hard to hear, there's so much noise going on. Notice my hair got stuck all over the Velcro? That hurt a little.

Kylee and Tina and a lot of that wasn't fair! Even though grandma was blocking Kylee's way with her leg at the end.
Tina and Kylee again, they had to have a rematch!
Carrie and I, and for the record I did not! Oh and I kept slapping her butt because I didn't think I had hit it the first time, I thought I was slapping her leg. Man, I'm not good at this, I can't hear anything. I lost every time! My hair doesn't want to stay out of the velcro either.
Kylee and Carrie, with "Rocky" playing in the background. Definitely some MORE cheating going on!

Carrie and Kylee rematch. Someone, I think my mom was yelling "over there, over there", mom they can't see!

Kylee and Carrie again, best out of 3. Kylee won! Kylee pretty much rocked! I was a little scared for my piano and piano bench though. Man they're all fast, I felt so slow, I'll have to practice with my kids before I play with them again. Then again I never cheated!
Kylee and I and I soooo had that one! Even though I suck I didn't want to stop playing this game but people had to leave so we wanted to play another game. It was a fun night!
Happy New Years Eve everyone!
