By the way, we were venetian Gondoliers.
Every New Years, we have a family tradition of playing the New Years Olympics! We look forward to it all year long. We each choose a county, dress up, bring a food dish representing our country and bring a few fun "minute to win it type games" to play. Here and here are the previous years. Love New Years!!! This year was extra fun!

In true New Years Olympic tradition, we always start off the games with a rousing game of Around-the-World Ping Pong!
The classic Gummy Bear Toss, where you had to see how many bears your partner could catch in their mouth...Elise was shockingly good at this game!
For this game you had to see how many times you could drop the ping pong ball on the bottle and have it land on the top without falling. We were very serious about these games!!!
The Elephant March: You need to knock over all the cans the fastest.
Funniest Game: Bobble Head!! With a pedometer on your head you compete to get the highest number on your pedometer in one minute. Hilarious!
The stroke of midnight!
