    Who here has some interesting tales of family for the holidays? This year was quiet for us (which was odd), so I dont have much to share. Not a whole lot came to visit this year. Thought I would live through you.

    Just that all my in-laws decided to take up smoking and thought it would be neat to chain smoke while we were there. We mistakenly made the decision earlier to stay there overnight and my 3 yr old could have asthma so we asked that everyone smoke somewhere else. As soon as I took the kids up to get them settled, they all came back to the kitchen and chain smoked until midnight so I got to smell that crap all night. Bunch of frickin morons, we will never do that again

    That and the bro-in-law found the crown royal and drank the whole bottle and managed to fall in the toilet, puke in his car and basically cause a riot before his wife finally had to take him home.

    Other then that, good stuff.

    Two years ago:

    In the same span of 15 minutes....

    We were at my in-laws...

    Our dog was outside, got spooked a jumped through the glass door into the house and ran into the living room leaving behind a cold opening and a pile of glass. While everyone was frantic and trying to clean up the mess, my sister in law wasnt watching her 1 year and she fell down the steps into the basement and was balling. After all of this calmed down we settled in for the night.

    The next day a squirrel got stuck in the fireplace and came down into the house and freaked everyone out.

    Best christmas ever.

    This year was lame.

    Let's see....my 83 year old great uncle told me the same story 4 times about how he won 1100 at the casino....of course the B double-E double R U N! Having my mom give me a present but forgetting to wrap it. My grandma giving the wrong people presents and us having to figure out who gets what.

    You mean this doesn't happen to everyone for every birthday and christmas? My mom 'looses' presents, so sometimes in July she'll find the calander she meant to give me for Christmas or any other gift she meant to give me years before. Years ago I used to go to her main hiding spots after we opened gifts to see if she forgot to pull something out for someone in the family. Happens ALL the time.

    ...and my wife wonders why I have no complaints about her family. My in-laws do some pretty goofy things (which gives me a laugh), but they're SANE compared to ya'll's in-laws...

    My in-laws are pretty sane. The only 'bad' thing about Christmas this year was that my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law were hounding us like little kids to open presents before we could even get our coats off. But we're used to that.

    Not Christmas, but Thanksgiving a couple years ago.

    We were hosting. My wife's family has a tradition of having a Thanksgiving supper. So, her brother shows up around 9 am. We weren't out of bed yet. We don't have kids so we don't need to worry about that yet. Anyway, he shows up without his wife or kid. Thought that was odd.

    He was watching TV part of the morning and then wanted to use the computed. I thought that was odd, but gave him the OK. Later on he wanted to check it again. By this time I knew something was up. Around 3 he used it for the third time. OK, who's he taliking to and why is it so important to check. I know what you're thinking and I was thinking the same thing.

    His wife and kid show up and we have supper. He hangs out for awhile and then decided that he wanted to go home. Again leaving his wife and child. That's when his wife tells us that he's having an affair. She tells us this with my wife, his mother and aunt right there. Nice. Happy holidays. I had it figured out as soon as he wanted to use the computer.

    She had put some sort of spy program on the computer at their house. She was able to follow where he had been on the internet. Then she was able to get onto his Yahoo account and read his emails. Ooops.

    She got home and confronted him with the emails that she had printed off from his account. She gave him the boot and he was looking for a place to stay. Guess where he went.

    He turned up at our place but we weren't there. We had to take my wife to the emergency room. He worked at the hospital and somehow figured out that we were there. Considering the circumstances of why we were there, we really didn't want to see him. His mom escorted him out of the room and told him, in no uncertain terms, that he was not staying at our house. We needed to be left alone. He ended up sleeping on the couch in his office at work.

    Needless to say, that was a terrible night. Worst Thanksgiving ever.

    3 Christmas's ago we were all sitting around getting ready to open gifts (2 sisters, 2 brother-in-laws, mom, wife, our two kids and 4 nephews and one niece). Just as the we started to pass out the gifts my 7-year-old niece decided to puke on all the gifts. It was GROSS. My brother-in-law went running out the front door and drove home because he hates getting sick. We slowly wiped down the presents but still needed to put on gloves to open some of them.

    I was told a week after Thanksgiving by my step-mom that she was divorcing my father. (This was a long time coming and frankly overdue)

    A week later I'm told we're going to have ONE more X-Mas together as a family.....so for 3 weeks I get to stew about after 29 years this is our last one.

    They had something big planned for my brothers' and I before the whole divorce thing. Rumor was amongst us boys it was alot of $.

    Basically the whold day went really well, it just sucked because my folks acted like nothing was going on, no word being mentioned of the divorce. The wierd thing was my dad packing up his vehicle with presents and getting ready to leave with the rest of us.

    Oh yea, it wasn't money, we all got new computers, which I really, really needed a new one. Fun, fun...

    I'll try to keep this story clean since this is a family friendly site and all.

    Last X-mas the wife and I were sitting at her parents place with her very wierd brother, her parents and our two little kids eating dinner before we opened presents. My brother-in-law is quite "unique" and within 2 minutes of meeting him, you'd see why he is 35 and has never really had a girlfriend. Well for this X-mas he somehow found himself a girlfriend but she didn't come to our X-mas that year for some reason. Anywho, as we were eating my mother-in-law was lecturing her son on how she doesn't want any little ones running around until he is officially married, yada yada.......my brother-in-law interupted her in mid-sentence and said, "don't worry ma, I always pull out and spew it all over her stomach", then he proceeded to imitate it by sticking his tongue out and making the farting sound with his mouth while he pretended he was spraying something................I have never lost my appetite so fast. The girlfriend left him before new-years-eve and my brother-in-law I think will be single forever

    Jamesfnb reminded me of something.

    My brother-in-law and his wife seemed to have earned alot of $ this past year or came into some, I don't know...they have a new RV and new speed boat, brand new car, etc...

    His wife comes to X-Mas wearing a tight, tight sweater with new breast' inside of it. Kinda funny because my in-laws are a very conservative family and she just seemed to put "them" right in our face...I really didn't mind, I just thought it was hilarious. Especially at the end of the night when she took her sweater off and was wearing a tight white t-shirt underneath. I thought I was the only one who noticed until the phone started ringing when we got home last night and other family members started calling and asking us about it.

    Landshark reminded me of something too........

    2 X-mas's ago my sister gave herself a present by having breast augmentation. She is a skinny minnie and all she really needed to do was put on some weight for once and she could probably naturally grow herself some but instead she had surgery. Well, she elected to have the surgery a week before xmas because it worked in her schedule the best, etc....we all though she wouldn't show up at xmas because she would be too sore. Well, actually no one was supposed to know about it but she told my other sister, who told me, and you know how it goes, yada yada. My sister ended up showing up for xmas with her husband and 3 kids so we were all happy. However, she obviously had her chest taped down and basically refused to hug anyone because she was so sore. When someone would hug her she would basically do one of those fake hugs where you don't really touch each other because one little bump to her chest and you could see by the look on her face she was in pain.

    One New Years Eve, My wife (girl-friend then) took her younger brother to a New Years party. He drank Zimas (no he is not gay) all night long, then switched over to Bush Light. He ended up Puking all over the floor. I was informed who ever brought him had to clean it up. So that is how I toasted in the New Year.:confused:
