    Got four youngest niece's and nephews' gifts today and did really well for the budget. #Winning

    Now, to search for the youngest BIL. He'll be slightly difficult. Everybody else I know what I need to get.

    Yikes. I understand families all have their own traditions, but that just sounds more like prison than a family holiday together. :eek:

    The talk about holiday traditions got me to thinking.....the vixen's family is so cool. They love to get together - at the drop of a hat, for whatever reason - and just enjoy good food and beer and lots of conversation. I feel very fortunate that they adopted me seamlessly into their family and treat me like one of their own.

    This may be a better than normal Christmas. Wife has gotten irritated by her family so we may not have to spend 3 full days at her families various Christmas functions.

    Setting the tone great for the week. Spending more time trying to figure out when to burn 5 hours of vaca than doing actual work

    I give you props, my fellow Musketeer. You even capitalized it. Well done!

    I always remember John Hurt saying that sarcastically to Elizabeth Perkins later, after the meeting.

    "I don't get it, I don't get it!"

    I almost posted that one, but I'm not mocking stormy.

    Her reactions to grown men acting like children were awesome.

    @VeloClone - Were we at the same fundraiser dinner at a church last night?

    I know your daughter participates in the activity and somebody was wearing an Iowa State sweatshirt so I'm going with the fact that it was you.

    Apparently you're not supposed to say the word 'straight' in any context because it's offensive to people who are not straight, I don't know...

    At Christmas, everyone opens their gifts one at a time and has to show everyone what it is. There's like 16 people too so gift opening takes like 3 hours.

    Ours is everyone's gifts are handed out, and then paper flies for a few minutes and we're done.

    Went to the courthouse to renew moms car license. They asked me the plate number, I said no clue. Then she seriously asked me if I knew her name. I told her moms name. Then she asked if she was still at such and such address, I said the car is.
