What's the funniest thing that happened at your celebration today?

Anything amusing?

At our house DD dug into the bottom of her stocking and found a squeezy santa ball that got tangled up and left there from last year! I thought there was something squishy down there, but at midnight when I filled the stockings I just ignored it. LOL!

    she goes downstairs to tell family that i am locked in my room
    daughter comes back up with no family adult member

  • My BFF was telling stories about our silly high school escapades to my DF and he was getting a kick out of it. She told of the time we drove through a college fraternity party at the local university. Cars weren't allowed there. We drove through the lawn. That was a big deal to 2 high school girls back then.

  • All the tape and boxes within boxes I used to wrap the kids' gifts. I even put gifts cards in shirt boxes. They were so annoyed, but were laughing at it too. My kids are tweens and teens, so I was trying to make it more fun.

  • Yeah, I can't top fiatpax for sure.

    Funniest thing for us is my kids each got an mp3 player, and when they have the earbuds in, they shout at us. I keep telling them they don't have to shout since we're not wearing earbuds, they insist they aren't shouting, I insist they are, they take earbuds out and (in a normal voice) continue to insist they aren't shouting. LOL My mom and I were dying because we argued with my oldest about this for like 5 minutes.

  • LOL Paxy!

    I am sick. Had no celebrations. Stayed home as not to infect dozens of relatives (Also thinking Kyle has Strep on top of mono, so I might have that!)

    But hubby came home and baked me brownies which was a great pick me up (can't taste them :( but the thought that counts).
    Mid chewing brownie, I had to sneeze. Had to make a spur of the moment choice- spray brownie everywhere, choke, or pee my pants.
    I Peed.
    Unlike Paxy, there was no vaporizer nearby. I was however sitting on Kyle's comforter. It's in the wash now.

  • LOL Paxi & PGA!!

    I can't decide which was funnier- if it was the "gift" our dog gave me this morning.... As she was trying to make it to the backdoor, she dropped a couple of "presents" on my kitchen floor. Then came in & unwrapped her own present, which to us is just stinking adorable. :)

    Then we had the usual family banter at my dad's house, with my 11 y/o being old enough to get in her zingers now. :p

  • Paxy wins, hands down. The funniest thing that happened at our house was that my daughter got a bunch of new Zhu Zhu hamsters, and somehow all of them managed to tag team the poor cat. The real live one. They finally sent him running off up the stairs in search of peace.
