Friends are so great! This past Sunday night I got to hang out with
some of my coolest friends-and I even got to make a new friend in the
process. We had our annual CotK Christmas Challenge and our team was
"Jingle Bells". We did a picture scavenger hunt around Southfield and
our team didn’t do too bad-we came in 3rd place. We definitely had a
blast though. Here’s a recap:
Christy, Mark and Chris-sportin’ Michigan State gear (good thing Mark had his State hat with him…even though he goes to UMD)
Here we have Brad, Eddie, me, Andrea and Mark-with 12 reindeer When I first saw this picture I
though, "Wow, I’m really short!" Then I realized that I was crouching down for some reason. Perhaps I thought my head would be cut off if I didn’t.
Jason and Richie are "on Santa’s lap"…I’m not sure if actually got points for this one.
Richie, Andrea, Christy and Katie-all piled in (and ON) a buggy…otherwise known as a "shopping cart", outside of the Metro Detroit area
Mark, Jason, me and Brad-we’re standing in a puddle…really, we are. I’m not sure why I was making
that face-probably telling someone how to use my camera:)
This is everyone on our team except Andrea, who took the picture. If you look closely, Brad’s the baby Jesus, Chris is a sheep, Christy, Mark and I are wisemen, KT is Mary (or is Eddie, Mary?) I think Richie and Jason are shepherds.
Sometimes I wonder if Jesus just sits in Heaven and laughs at us, with the crazy things we do. 🙂 He’s up there sayin’, "Yep, that looks just like what happened! Hehehehehe, those are my silly kids."
Here we are at the after-party-me and my Khalil…those cheeks!
What an incredible and memorable night spent with some of my favorite people! Thanks for a great time!
****My disclaimer-I’m sorry the captions don’t line up with the pictures too well. I have had to reformat this thing over and over again for the past 20 minutes (aka-way too much time to spend on this:) Maybe God’s trying to teach me something about my desire for perfection?

Kim, I don’t think we call them “buggies” in Metro Detroit either. I grew up here… I think it was because the person writing the scavenger hunt list is Southern.
I definitely see your point, but I don’t know…I’ve heard a lot people around here call them buggies.
I call them buggies, but then again, I’m from the EASTSIDE!!! LOL
