Day #7

Since we are sunch a big, happy unconventional family.. we have ALOT of members. 
So every year when the holidays come around the phone starts ringing. 

"Are you coming over this year?"
"Are we gonna see you this year?"
"Your Grandpa is in town, when are you coming to visit?"

Before we know it we have enough miles on our car to equal up to a cross-country visit! 
(& I know there are MANY of you who can relate.)

So, Even though we know we can't say what we WANT to say to dear ol' Mom & Dad...
"Can't you ALL come to our house this year??"

(I'm pretty sure I'd have a heart attack if I tried to fit everyone in our 
tiny little apartment.. Family dinners are trouble enough...
I think I'll wait till we get a bigger place for that one...)

So we drive to & from. Here & there. Up & down and all over town.

but THIS YEAR we are making changes.. when it comes to the family FRIENDS..
youknow.. the ones you have over for game night, and dinners, and birthdays...
The ones who might as WELL be family??

When it comes to THEM, we've sent out this Evite:

*To those who don't know, 
I am 90% of the time the host of EVERYTHING. 
It's a Love-Hate hobby*


We want to start a new tradition!

We have alot of friends, that we consider more than just friends.. you guys are family.

There for, we want to start a new tradition. Every year from here on out..
...A early Christmas-XmasParty day!

On Saturday, the weekend before Xmas weekend,
(this year = December 18th, 2010)
we are going to have a JUST family-friends holiday. :)
...Kinda like a Themed Game night.. with more food :)

So here is the deal:

Potluck= So bring something Yummy! Dinner & Dessert Style!
Drinks= Soda, Beer, Wine, Champagne (Normal Game Night Rules)
Dress Code = UGLY XMAS SWEATERS!!! (hit up Value village & Casual.. TRY to be COMFY.. Not a Dress & Heels.. (Katie) ;) haha


We know everyone is tight for money, and we figured THIS would be an easier way to do presents this year!

So IF you can, contact us however you can, and let us know what you plan on bringing, so I can maybe stifle off doubles, And make SURE to RSVP!!

Let me know if you are coming, and if you are bringing a guest by ATLEAST December 11th at the LATEST. I will be drawing names for Secret Santa and contacting you to let you know who you got on the 12th, So everyone will have a week to shop! :)

*Annaise WILL be in the bag! So Watch to be the lucky one to draw her name!*

At the end of the night we will take a big group photo in all our ugly sweaters. This will make a great thing to look at each year!

We look forward to seeing all of you there!
We ♥ you!
& Happy Holidays!

Dear Santa,

Day #5
*Our Wish Lists!*

When it comes to Ryan, He's pretty simple. Hot Wheels, & tools. For 8 years I have NEVER been able to go wrong.. as long I i am in either one or both of those two categories..

But his "UN-obtainable" for this year... the present he wishes desperately he could figure out how to get his grubby little hands on... THIS:

An Acura TL

Dont I wish!
He also shares a "un-obtainable" wish with Anthony:

New XBOX360 w/ Kinect
I can tell you right now, THAT one isn't happening ANY time soon... for EITHER of them.
Though I know Anthony would be just fine with Either (or both) of these:

Peach & Mint Shisha
& a new 4-pipe Hooka

BLEH. Atleast he does that bologna outside. :) 

Now Melissa has very simple, artsy tastes: 

New brushes, a new easel, 
Watercolors, & the PostSecret books...

While I Also have simple tastes like:
a cookie rack & 
peppermint stuff from Bath & Body Works

But we share a common interest 
in two very AWESOME things...

A Nintendo Wii      &     A Canon Rebel

I think its our turn right?
The boys got what they wanted LAST year.. 

yup.. our turn.. i think so! :)

You just GOTTA have the classics!

"If you can't learn to accept ANYTHING on faith, then you are doomed for a life dominated by doubt."


"The Whos young and old would sit down to a feast, and they'll feast, and they'll feast...
And they'll feast, feast, feast, feast. They'll eat their Who-Pudding and rare Who-Roast Beast. But that's something I just cannot stand in the least. Oh, no. I'M SPEAKING IN RHYME"


"Ho, ho, but no matter. Christmas was on its way. 
Lovely, glorious, beautiful Christmas, 
upon which the entire kid year revolved."

"You know, I think this Christmas thing is not as tricky as it seems! But why should they have all the fun? It should belong to anyone! Not anyone, in fact, but me! Why, I could make a Christmas tree! And there's not a reason I can find, I couldn't have a Christmastime! I bet I could improve it, too! And that's exactly what I'll do!"

It's my FAVORITE time of the week!
It's time for:

For those of you who are new:

Just like cartoons early Saturday morning ...
When you would get up early on PURPOSE to wrap yourself in a blankie, big bowl of cereal in your lap and watch silly shows till you couldn't laugh anymore??
Everyone likes to laugh. I haven't met many people who don't. We all love to laugh, or smile, giggle to ourselves, or laugh out loud so randomly that the people around us wonder if they need to call for help...
(That last one is my FAVORITE pass-time)

Well I know that I do. I also know I LOVE to make others laugh, therefor..  
"Silly Saturdays!"

Sit back, drink some coffee, chow some cereal, and remember what its like to just laugh. there is nothing else that matters in the world...

Share them with your friends. Keep them to yourself. You can even join in and share what YOU'VE got!
All I ask, is that you smile, relax, and Laugh!

Don't forget to leave you thoughts, questions, requests and <3 in the comments below!!


Just some morning jokes:

One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift.  The next year, I didn't buy her a gift.
When she asked me why, I replied, "Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started.....

My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed.  I turned to her and said, "Do you want to have sex?"  "No," she answered.  I then said,
"Is that your final answer?"  She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, "Yes.."  So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."
And that's when the fight started.....

I took my wife to a restaurant.
The waiter, for some reasson, took my order first.  "I'll have the rump steak, rare, please."
He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"  "Nah, she can order for herself."
And that's when the fight started.....

My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her, "Do you know him?"  "Yes," she sighed, "He's my old boyfriend.  I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago,  and I hear he hasn't been sober since."
"My God!"  I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"
And that's when the fight started.....

When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed.  But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat, making beer.  Always something more important to me.  Finally, she thought of a clever way to make her point.
When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors.  I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.  I was only gone for a minute, and when I came out again, I handed her a toothbrush.  I said, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."

And that's when the fight started.....

My wife sat down next to me as i was flipping channels.
She asked, "What's on TV?"  I said, "Dust."
And that's when the fight started.....

Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage.  I hooked up the boat the the van, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour.  The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.
I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed.  I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible."
My loving wife of five years replied, "And, can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?"
And that's when the fight started.....

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.  She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds."
I bought her a bathroom scale.
And that's when the fight started.....

My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me, "I feel horrible;  I look old, fat and ugly.  I really need you to pay me a compliment."
I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."
And that's when the fight started...
