We had such a fun New Years Eve this year! Rick & Mandy hosted a Honky Tonk Murder Mystery Party! We have done these with this group before and they are always so fun! We all really get into our characters and have a blast acting out the mystery! Mandy went all out with the country decorations to add to the fun!
The scene of the crime!
Love these two girls so much!
Carney Folk and Crystalline Daniels
A little photo booth fun!
Carney, Twyla, and Rowdy!
Mandy was the sheriff, I was a bar maid, Kim was a townie, and Mariah was the preacher's wife
Can you tell we had the best time?!
Rick was a country singer, Ernie was the tele-evangelist Reverend, Mark was a carnival worker, and D.J. was a biker
We fed the kids first, then put on a movie for them upstairs while we ate.
We had mac 'n cheese, ribs, chicken nuggets from Chic-fil-a, salad, and other country fixin's. It was delicious! After dinner we put the kids to bed and started the Murder Mystery.
My script and my delicious brownie sundae for dessert!
Mandy got things going, we all did our little intros, read our parts, showed our clues, and made our accusations!
Rick even did a little singing along the way...
I was pregnant with Bubba's baby- he was the murder victim and the owner of the bar that I worked in. But, alas, I was not the murderer!
It was the PREACHER! Ernie did it!
After the mystery was solved we rang in the New Year with a little Flip Cup!
Guys against the girls. We lost! Then we counted down at midnight, celebrated the New Year, and went to bed! We spent the night and hung out around the Leensvaarts house for awhile the next day. We got McDonalds and Starbucks for breakfast and the kids played with all of Jack's new Christmas and birthday toys. We love doing life with these people! So fun! Thanks for hosting Leensvaarts and thanks for such a fun night Krauths and VanEps'! We love you and look forward to spending a happy and healthy 2015 with you!!!
