It was a Griswald family Christmas!
Honestly, my family should just change our last name to Griswald. We have the strangest family get togethers ever.
I was extremely overjoyed that I got to spend Christmas Eve with my girls Ashley, Shannon and Liz. I was more than ecstatic to see every single one of them and spend the evening being crazy. Brian and Shannon graced us with Shannon's Christmas song, which I must say had me ready to pee my pants. My favorite line " Maeen, boop boops the horn..." I took a few pictures which I will put up when I return to the city. We were all feeling pretty good by the end of the night drinking wine, highballs, beer and whatever else came our way. There was the infamous 3-way shot between Ash, Shan and I of Seagram's and chinese whiskey. DO NOT DRINK CHINESE WHISKEY UNLESS INTENDING ON VOMITING VERY SHORTLY AFTERWARD. Needless to say poor Shannon spent the rest of the night saying "I think I'm gonna puke." But strangely enough she made it through the whole night without doing so. Oh yeah, Shannon and I did make a trip to Rick's house. I definitely was in no condition to drive but I did and we made it there and back safely. I was about ready to call it a night around 2...so I drove home, made a few drunken phone calls (sorry!!) and passed out.
Christmas day.... wow. My mom wakes me and my sister up around 9:00 because she was waiting for us to get up and open our presents since 7. I drug my still drunken butt downstairs to find my dad laying on top of my mom making out... my parents are too cute it makes me sick. So once everyone got downstairs we did the whole "A Christmas Story" present opening. "WOW, WOOOPIE a zeplin!!" My sister and I layed on the couch to watch a movie while mom and dad cooked dinner. Well when they called us to help, we began to realize that we were missing half of the ingredients to make the homemade stuffing and the caserole and some of the other things we were eating. Our dinner was rediculous with crazy conversations like usual and plenty of burping and laughing. After dinner I was playing with the dog and I was going to scare her by jumping out from the kitchen... wellllll I was still in my pj's and I had knitted socks on. Knitted socks on a tile floor, not a good combination. I started to jump but slipped and came crashing to the ground, all the weight landing on my knee. So after my sister finally stopped laughing at me and the pain went away enough for me to get up, I spent half the day on the couch with and ice pack on my knee. Well then we went to visit my aunt where two of her three kids and her husband were shooting each other with paint balls in the woods behind the house. Crazy. Then we came home and ventured up the street to Uncle Jim's house where there was more family and more craziness.
Aunt Lisa's joke: "What does toast wear to bed??!"
Somehow our family always ends up talking about poop when we are all with each other.
After Uncle Jim's me, my mom, dad, gram and sister came home to relax. My two girlies called and decided to stop over to see the fam and hang out for a while. Me, Chrissy, Ashley, Shannon, Brian and my daddy played Trivial Pursuit SNL Edition (one of my sisters presents from 'santa') Well wasn't that a treat. Shannon and Brian left and came back with Todd... and by then my dad was already wasted and my sister and Ashley were kicking my dad and I's asses. Todd was rockin at the game so him and Brian both became part of my dad and I's team... who still managed to lose. But not without my dad falling asleep at the table, slurring all his words, almost spilling his spitoon on the game peices and saying "Answer the question f*ckface!" to Todd. (a boy which he has never met until that moment in time!) My daddy is hysterical. He made everyone have a drink...beer, martinis, whatever worked, just something containing alcohol. Oh yeah, my dad also stunk us all out of the room at one point, but that's him. He was also mighty proud of Ashley's burps I might add. So by the time we were finished with the game he was ready to pass out and everyone was tired so I went to Brians again where me, Brian, Shannon and Todd played drinking games with wine followed closely by strip poker. (I do not remember how to play poker so you can only imagine what I looked like by the end of the game considering I lost every other hand) I retired around 3 last night.
Oh yeah, to add to all the craziness I woke up fine on Christmas morning but after I drank two glasses of orange juice I got a little nauseous and threw up shortly afterward. But then I felt better so it was all good. Needless to say my family is a blast and so are my friends and I wouldn't trade this Christmas for anything in the world. I am so glad that I got to spend it with the people I did and I thank every single one of them for making it so amazing!!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
