Our family is crazy.
It is not like you didn't suspect it before
so I am just confirming it here.
Our kids & their spouses exchange names at Christmas.
There is a rule about the gift giving.
You have to MAKE it yourself.
It cannot cost more than $25.00.
It must be something well....
the word unique comes to mind.
So-THIS PAST CHRISTMAS
My sweet daughter and momma-to-be,
Mimi got her brother's name.
Here she is with her crazy sister.
Mimi is on the right.
Anyway, you probably DON'T WANT Mimi
to get your name because she has a wicked
sense of humor.
This year she got her brother's name.
You know-the daddy to little CJK.
Mimi invented a game called
The Blue Man Game.
To play you must don a blue suit.
You must stand on the mat provided.
People stand 10 feet from you and throw
ping pong balls covered with velcro
at the bulls-eyes hoping to hit them.
Points are assigned for dodging balls,
catching balls and assorted other points.
So, Christmas morning at my daughter' house
you see here
Mama's Boy in the "starting position".
Notice the JAZZ HANDS.
Notice the two laughers on either side of him.
Laughers are optional.
When the BLUE MAN gets a set number of ponts
he can choose any member that threw balls
at him to replace him.
That person must then don the
BLUE MAN SUIT
and take his turn on the mat.
Guess who Mama's Boy picked?
It is MyHero!
Here SweetCheeks is 'splaining
the rules to Papa.
He does NOT get the jazz hands part.
Notice how nicely the
BLUE MAN suit
shows off his svelte figure.
Now, I might be blond
but I was
to not throw a single ball.
And here you thought I was
THE DUMB ONE
in the family!
