Well Hello There! Just popping in to check on your Christmas. I hope it was wonderful — ours was fabulous. MyDadLovesMeBestSister and CrazyBIL hosted this year and we had a ton of fun. Remember this little bundle who was the star of the show last year?
Well, he still managed to be the center of attention for much of this year. He’s a big baby and he was in the middle of everything. He kept us entertained during the down times.
Which were almost never. We ate, opened presents, ate, opened more presents, ate even more and played some really fun games. We downloaded a free one-hour trial version of family feud and projected it onto the wall. It was SO much fun — I’m definitely planning on buying it for next year. Our family splits up perfectly — MyDadLovesMeBestSister has 2 girls and a boy, and with SweetiePie, we have 2 boys and a girl. Perfect family teams of six each when we added MeMum and BigDaddy to the teams. I’m proud to say that the Thimbleanna family whomped up on the CrazyBIL family. As it should be.
After the one-hour trial (which was really longer than an hour) was up, we played Catch Phrase. For those of you who don’t know Catch Phrase, you have this little disk that you pass around a circle of people. As each person gets the disk, a word or phrase appears on the little disk, and it’s that person’s job to get their team members to guess the word by giving hints, but without actually saying the word or phrase. This time we played girls against boys — again, we have a perfect split of 6 on each team. We laughed hysterically at a lot of the word descriptions. The most memorable was when CuteNephew and TheFirstChild had us on the floor because CuteNephew couldn’t get his team to guess “Break the Ice” by describing a hammer and frozen lake. So he moved on to the dating version of the phrase and it went downhill from there. The guys were just funny in general — time always seemed to run out on TheSecondChild, no matter where he sat — and BigDaddy would get frustrated that his team wasn’t getting the word, so with no warning, he’d just calmly blurt out the word and pass the disk on. Anyway, the girls won! Again — as it should be LOL!
So, it’s all over for another year. I didn’t touch a computer for four days and it was heavenly, although, I’m having withdrawal symptoms now. Time to do some reading. Oh, and the Gingerbread Houses were lots of fun too and as soon as I quit being lazy, I’ll get to those pictures. But first there will be the little matter of a blogiversary. I’m off to figure it out!
