We all have strange relatives. We all have dysfunctional families at times. We don’t always get along. We ARE a family though and I love every single one of them. Here are some examples of families with two extremes. Some love each other too much and others just creep me out.

I won’t be unwrapping this one: (more…)

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the tree. Santa is fun, cookies are delicious but there’s something about that green pine that warms the heart. Like everything else though some people’s definition of the Christmas tree is a bit different. Take a look:

I will admit right here and right now that when it comes to some things I am lazy. (scared is another word I’d use) As I talked about a few days ago I am a Christmas junkie but my junkiness only goes so far. There’s something about plugging electrical cords into power strips which are plugged into outlets which are OUTSIDE! You know where moisture falls?

Anyone who knows me personally knows that I am a huge fan of the Christmas season. I’m the fool you’ve seen wearing Santa hats at the store. I can be heard singing random lyrics to random songs and I begin watching Christmas movies on Black Friday. I blame my parents for this crazy behavior. When I was a kid they created an atmosphere of joy and anticipation which would build slowly until Christmas Eve. It was impossible not to get caught up in it. We knew the festivities had begun because Mom would suddenly want to “Let’s go look at the lights!” go driving around. Christmas music would be played a lot around the house.
