Merry Christmas Dharmenizens!

(And a Happy New Year!!! – promoted by buhdydharma )

Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk

At our Christmas party

We were drinkin’ champagne punch and homemade eggnog

Little sister brought her new boyfriend

He was a Mexican

We didn’t know what to think of him til he sang Feliz Navidad

Feliz Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him

The three from his first wife Lynn

And the two identical twins

From his second wife MaryNell

Of course he brought his new wife Kay

Who talks all about AA

Chain smokin’ while the stereo plays Noel, Noel,

The first Noel

Carve the turkey turn the ball game on

Mix margaritas when the eggnog’s gone

Send somebody to the Quik-Pak store

We need some ice and an extension cord

A can of bean dip and some Diet Rite

A box of tampons and Marlboro Lights

Hallelujah everybody say cheese

Merry Christmas from the family

Fran and Rita drove from Harlingen

I can’t remember how I’m kin to them

But when they tried to plug their motor home in

They blew our Christmas lights

Cousin David knew just what went wrong

So we all waited on our front lawn

He threw the breaker and the lights came on and we sang Silent Night

Oh Silent Night

Carve the turkey turn the ballgame on

Make Bloody Marys cause we all want one

Send somebody to the Stop ‘n Go

We need some celery and a can of fake snow

A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprite

A box of tampons and Salem Lights

Hallelujah everybody say cheese

Merry Christmas from the family

Feliz Navidad!

    and i ate lots  of great food, drank wine, laughed and laughed… and got beautiful pearl, pink gold and white gold earrings from my honey for my birthday… they are beautiful and they look great, have to say…

    and my nephew ryan wrote me a poem and when you read each letter down, it spelled “my aunt”

    and he thinks i’m awesome!!! now really, does it get better than that?

  2. One of my better ones as instead of  cooking a gigantic meal for all the family they came this weekend in separate batches.I got to enjoy the grandchildren and actually talk to my kids. Tonight were going to a fancy hotel for a romantic dinner. Everyone in my family got me art supplies without consultation. I am a artist who hasn’t painted for about 2yrs. so I think the universe and my family are telling me to get back to work. Hope all your Christmas’s are peaceful and full of the light we all need so much.

  5. “‘Ight”.  The word is correctly pronounced “‘ight.”  It does not have a silent “a” before the “‘”.  “‘Ight?”
