Apple Party

My Husband just got a job with Apple! and anyone who knows us knows what a big deal this is for our family!
 We just had to celebrate!

And what better theme then an APPLE THEME!

First I have to give a huge thanks to the Balls Family, not only did they feed us a wonderful dinner that night, but they also provided all the dishes for the Carmel Apple Bar. They are SO CUTE!
For the Candied Apple Bar, I bought a variety of apples, carmel and fudge, an a variety of toppings
Topping ideas…
  • Cranberries
  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Coconut (A MUST HAVE!!! so good!)
  • Nuts (I chose pecans)
  • Oreos (smashed)
  • Pretzels (smashed)
After enjoying the candied apples, we played GAME “Apples to Apples”
You can play it the standard way or our way. Every one gets a stack of GREEN  cards, face down, with out looking at them. Then you give a fill in the blank statement, such as “my cooking is______” every one chooses a card to flip over, it is funny because some are true and some are so far from the truth it’s funny! At our party some ones cooking was “deadly” and we all laughed cause she was the one who fed us dinner! (which was amazing, not deadly) 

If you need some ideas to get your creative juices flowing, you can download this list I came up with
Another awesome thing about playing this way, is there are no winners or losers, just lots of laughs!
This party was way easy and still lots of fun, so go buy some apples!

Uncle Yakabo's Far Away Birthday Party

Elder Yakabo went to Ghana, Africa, on his mission, back in August and is away for his 20th birthday. 
We wanted to do something special for his birthday. So we threw him a BIRTHDAY PARTY!

Here is the CAKE WE BAKED, and decorated it in honor of him turning 20.

We all got together and sang happy birthday to him, blew out his candles and ate the cake!

Then we made BIRTHDAY CARDS for him! 
We took pictures of the whole thing, printed the pictures, and sent them to him along with our cards 
and treats and a gift (a texas tie of course!) So now he'll have his Birthday Party in an Envelope!
I hope he feels all of our love for him when he gets the package!
