Had a great time at the silly family auction

The party was at 1. It was held in their beautifully decorated garage. There was a table a long the wall with food and then two rows of tables running down the length of the room and two smaller tables running the opposite way. It was so crowded that once you scooted into a seat it was nearly impossible to get back out. Dinner was served first then the tables were cleared off and the gifts were all set on one table. On a large pinup board on the wall was months of the year. Each person wrote the day and month of their birthday on a piece of paper and stuck it under the month spot on the board. The months were drawn out of a hat then they went down the days in order of whose came first that month. The person called went up and chose any present to unwrap and show everyone then placed it on the second table. Anyone after that whose birthday was called could chose to steal that present or pick a new one. If you opened a present and someone liked it and stole it on their turn then the original gift opener got to pick another present. When my sons turn came he was to nervous so his sister picked his. It was a nice fuzzy hunting theme blanket he was hoping someone would steal. It was stolen and when his bday got called a second time he got braver and went up to make a choice. He chose the largest box that everyone was very curious and coaxing people into opening it. It wound up being a log carved up with screws for teeth, marbles for eyes, crazy black straw witch looking hair and a cowboy hat. Complete with a spiky wooden goatee. This was a site to see trust me lol. My son walked away crying. I laughed so hard I couldn’t help it. My daughter whose very artsy loved it and is keeping this hideous thing in her room. The photo I added here is of the gifts I won.

I posted the photo on instragram and facebook so I didn't want to share the same photo here. I thought I would be able to private message a photo to those on here who wanted to see it but I noticed when I tried we can't send photos that way
