Ugly Ornament Contest

The official ugly ornament contest.
Once again - Barb wins the contest, by giving Kathy the --- well --- Sperm shaped ornament.

Here you see the victory cheer.
Enjoy this years grouping. Linn gave out the strangly colored people ornaments. Barb found not only the sperm shaped snowman, but all so the porncicle. Fuzzy purple feathers all around.
Kathy brought home a troll man from Germany.
Unfortunetly the crowd called her disqualified - as he did not have a hook sticking out of his head to make him a true ornament.
Hope you enjoyed this years coverage of the Ugly Ornament Contest.

Merry Christmas

Brando got some Reindeer ears for Christmas.

Family photos in front of mom's tree.
We had a really great time.
Christmas eve was spent traveling lower southeaster Michigan.

We started at Mom's house and then moved on to Aunt Pat in Lincoln park where we see family once a year usually. Make sure we know who is alive.
Then we drove to Monroe to see all our friends that we made during all those 4-H years.
Kathy hosts the party and we all had a great time.
Between the ugly (or as this year under protest says- funniest) Ornament contest between Kathy, Mom and Linn and the jello shots and shrimp. We all had a great time. Ice on the driveway, but what did you expect.

Christmas day was spent with Tom's family. So MUCH FOOD. Started with crepes about noon, dinner was around 3 or so and TOO many presents to open.
We had a lovely time. Friday, we sat around and did nothing.
Ok, I lie - I hooked up the blue ray player and we watched Batman. WOW

Christmas is Tiring

They were right.
You do start to look like your owner...

Brando, the smooshed face dog.

Mom and I went to the show at Fox Theater.
It looks awesome for the holidays.  The whole theater is all decorated and they had little kids out front singing carols while people were waiting to get in to sit down for the show.
The show White Christmas was wonderful.  The outfits were amazing, the singing was awesome and David Ogden Stiers plays an officer in the army.  It was cool.  Worth every penny.  
I know he looks a bit funny but he would not sit up for me.
He looks all smooshed.  But he put up with the hat and everything.
Sorry, no good shot of Tom and I this year.
