gobble your wobble

i seriously don't believe i'm posting again this long holiday weekend. i guess i think i would rather post a couple short entires than one ridiculous long re-cap on sunday.

that's just boring.


plus i plan on not being able to move all day
sunday after hitting the cleveland bars with angilio (with her parents!) and elle michelle.

in regard to the image on the right, my whole plan was to take a before, during and after picture of my plate. i only remembered to take the before pic, which was eerily similar to the after pic i.e they were both clean.

the dinner went off with out a hitch. all we needed was good family and friends to make the day perfect. even though my cousin jenna was a little bit too cautious towards me this year - such a brat : )

jenna thought it would be funny to set the fire extinguisher by me


after dinner came dessert but more importantly the first home alone viewing of the season. my sister and i are beyond obsessed with home alone, knowing each and every line my heart. my love for this movie deserves a post of its own (hint hint).

a two hour nap later it was time to draw names for the christmas eve gift exchange, which went extremely smooth. SIKE! it was completely ridiculous, we had no idea what we were doing and it was completely disorganized. i had no idea all of the variables that we had to consider. so and so already buys a gift for so and so, blah blah, blah, blah, blah.

after over an hour of laughing at our stupidity we finally picked our names, and we realize that my cousin grog really needs socks - preferably cashmere. and that i like things that are black and pretty. hmmm.

but at the end of the festivities, isn't it still all about the turkey?

my cute little cousin graceyn om nom nom noming a turkey leg.

she knows what it's all about people!

  1. I love that your dinner plate even has your name on it.

    Ok I LOVE Home Alone. It is one of my favorite xmas activities. And seriously how does it get funnier and funnier every time I watch it. That Kevin Mc Callister rules!!.

  2. What a fancy place setting. We ate with my moms bird staring at us from her shoulder. Classy!

    I'll watch home alone a couple times. But my fave...is a christmas story. C'mon, it totally beats out home alone. Who's with me?

  3. Ohhh Home Alone is fun, but A Christmas Story is my favorite and we've already had the first viewing of the season.

  5. My poor brother had the great misfortune of looking a lot like Macaulay in 1990, when that movie was all the rage. It was great to watch him disappoint numerous autograph seekers.

    Also, "sike" is used far too sparingly. Thank you for your help in that.

  8. It's precious that y'all had place settings. And it sounds like a fabulous day.

    We always watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on Thanksgiving. You gotta love family traditions!
