FESTIVUS for the rest of us......

Happy Sunday everyone. First I want to say WOW!!! 102 followers! I would of never thought even a few would want to read what I have to say let alone 102! Welcome all, at some point I will do another giveaway, I will give this some serious thought....I have come to love blogging, reading everyone else's blogs, making great prim friends, great eye candy pictures of everyone's homes and most important all the kinds words when mom passed away.....

OK, enough of that, onto some fun stuff... I thought I would share a few pictures from our "FESTIVUS" party last night... Hubby started this one last year for something fun and different to do after the Holidays are over..... So for anyone not familiar, you can google it... it really started from a Seinfeld episode were George's dad talks about boycotting Christmas started festivus, celebrated on the 23rd.... we wait until now....

So we get a few friends and BFN's, won't say what that is in blogland, but it's our neighbor's! LOL
First we gather for a few cocktails, some dinner, then we start off with the "AIRING OF GRIEVANCES" Last year was the first year hubby did this, no body really knew anything about it...This year the everyone had their grievances prepared... Here is Dave with his list, wrote in crayon.... Then he goes onto the fact he's old and forgot what he was going to say, all the pages were blank! LOL.... I should of take pictures of what BFN's Jeff and Nadine did, she had a card for each of us, with their "GRIEVANCE'S" against... starting with" WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOU PEOPLE!" OMG, so funny! Many good laughs where had by all. Amazing what we all come up with in good fun...... Around the table stating grievances......The 2ND part, "FEATS OF STRENGTH" Last year hubby came up with a few "goofy"games and even goofier prizes for the winners. This year we thought about it a bit and came up with a few keepers..... First "RING AROUND THE NOSEY" I found this one, hubby wasn't to sure about it until you start to see adults play a game for 4-5 year olds.... WELL... just look! enough said......

Just think of the comments from adults that have had a few cocktails by now, put that elephant nose on and have to get 3 rings to stay on the nose.... TOO FUNNY! This should of been on video.... Hubby tries to come up with new games from last year, though this will repeat!


Sorry about the dots in the pictures, don't know why i am getting them....



Laughing??????

Alex, our oldest, we should be so proud, he was the champion of this game.....



OK, this is a repeat game from last year, only one, we will play it every year, husband against wife "ROCK EM SOCK EM ROBOTS!!!!" My brother and SIL playing, Michelle wins... Claims she has a lot of pent up frustration from 4 kids having the flu for 8 days from Christmas until after New Years. Their 2 1/2 year twins had it 5xs between them alone! YIKES!!! I would of tossed the game and just started punching everyone! LOL

King John and Mrs. Cindy... Hubby and John call each other " king" I don't know why, probably because we won't....


Then mini bags game .... this was fun... My brother play in a league, I have never really played... no picture of this, but hubby and I came from behind and beat him!!!!!! Here they are playing against neighbor's Dave and Denise.....

So good time was had by all, many, many needed laughs.....Back wasn't too bad, today REST!! Hubby watching football, I will probably craft. OLM
