Make-up & Wrestling

Last weekend we had a little birthday party at our house for Brock. Most of the people left after awhile and that's when things got interesting. I'm not sure why, but it seems like guys will do just about anything when there aren't a lot of other guys around.
For example - I don't know how this happened, but Brock and Nate were both braiding hair. Brock had some experience, but Nate picked it up pretty quickly.

Nate was still pretty manly in his braiding. He didn't have much sympathy for anyone whining about a tender head.
After Brock left, things got even more funny when Nate agreed to put make-up on Jen. We tried to get him to let us put make-up on him, but it didn't work this time.
I think this shot is my favorite. No one should make fun of a woman making faces as she puts on her make-up! It's necessary, people!
Not a cigarette! Don't worry. It's just the mascara bottle.
Here's the almost finished product. We were actually really impressed with Nate's blush skills! It looked very natural, especially factoring in that he had to use lip color.
I think after all the girly stuff, the boys needed to wrestle. We wrestled Abraham first and then had a go with Nate. He was actually a wrestler in HS, I think. We didn't even come close to beating him. This shot is us thinking about our next moves.
Here's a shot of some of the action. I was trying as hard as I could, but I couldn't even budge him. I was surprised with how tough Kelly was too. I wouldn't want to wrestle her! It was a fun night.

Holy postings! I haven't checked your blog and wow, you've done some serious posting.

I have to say that your house is better furnished than ours. We're working on it but it sure takes a while. :)

I'm impressed with your garden. We still need to start one. Argh!

I swear you guys always seem to be having a fun time. Loved the picture of the guy making a face while putting make up on Jenny.
