Thanks-Christmas 2009 - Part II

A couple of things about Thanks-Christmas...yes, Karen was in the kitchen non-stop like Kim said in her comment...we were just teasing her anytime she left the kitchen for a few seconds.

Second, I'll post more about the t-shirts tomorrow....but, first, I had a few more pix to share regarding the FIRST ever Thanks-Christmas talent show!

Here are a few pix from the show and my comments about it!! :)

Ella started the night off by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance for us. Good job, Ella!!

Emma played us a couple of songs. And, Anna told us jokes....although for some reason I don't have a picture of Anna. I think I was laughing too hard to remember to take pictures! I'm sorry, Anna!!

I think Amelia's talent was eating that night. :)

Then came the mother-daughters performance of the Jo Dee Messina song "I'm Alright"! It's a favorite to sing in the car!

Colby was mesmerized. I'm pretty sure if she was a bit older, she'd have been waving a lighter back and forth during their performance.

The grand finale!

The sisters team of Kori, Kim, and Kendall lip synched the Chipmunk's Christmas you see Alvin, Simon, and Theodore???

Theodore couldn't keep it together.

Karen did her "Edith Ann" performance....I almost pee'd my was the one where she explains to her mom that she did NOT give the dog her peanut butter sandwich. Karen can do the nasally voice and everything just like Lily Tomlin.
There were a few other planned performances, but once the guys saw the fierce competition, they flaked out. Myself, I performed a little rap song that I wrote about my brothers-in-law. And, no, I won't post the versus on this blog....but, if you buy me a glass of wine sometime (or a couple!), I might be convinced to perform it for you!!! :)

Your family looks like a hoot!! The way you describe all of this makes me think of my dad's side of the family. When we get together we spend most of the time laughing until our sides and faces hurt. Your sister Kim looks like she is a very fun mom!

So what was you and Nicks talent?

What lens were you using on those pictures? I like how it kind of has that "fish eye" look!!!

That looks like so much fun! Every year when my sisters were younger, we would put on a Christmas play! My sister, Michelle and I did it up until we were in jr. high!!!! So fun!!! Glad to see other people's families do fun stuff like that! Thanks for sharing!!!

I am so impressed by the talent show and the costumes used for each performance! :) You GIRLS look like you had a blast (the guys seemed to be too chicken!). I'm trying to imagine what a talent show would have been like at our Thanksgiving.... and it's not pretty!! :)

I love all the pics as well and I'm so glad we're not afraid to make fools of ourselves in front of each other like the HURL members are! The girls and I are already planning our talent for next year, so Kelly you better be planning to have a talent show!
