One of the many fun Kesler traditions is sled racing. Each person gets three Ande's mints, one Hershey's kiss, two large paper clips, a santa, and as much tape as s/he wants. Then everyone builds Santa's sled (the kiss is the pack of toys, of course!). As if that wouldn't be enough, we then race them. The winner gets a gift card. Yeah, we are serious here!
Behold Heidi and Phil's (losing) sleds:
Here are all the sleds lined up ready for the races:
Morgann, Steve, and Meg (the dog who was an extremely good sport with Eden chasing her around saying - in an exceedingly high-pitch - "doggie, doggie, doggie!")
Other fun Kesler traditions included LOTS of yummy food, playing the chimes, and lots of laughing!
