hip hip hooray, you'll shoot your eye out!

If you've read my blog for a while, you know that my family tends to go all out regarding Christmas movies. The usual favorite of choice is "Christmas Vacation" and when we get together to watch it, it's quite the family event... if you want, you can read about our antics regarding that classic here, here, and here.

This year, however, we decided to make "A Christmas Story" movie night the event to attend.

Robyn Ralphie was there with his "official" Red Ryder carbine action two hundred shot Range Model  air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time...

Emily Black Bart was busy pushing up daisies...

Julianna Randy (Mommy's little piggy) brought mashed potatoes and meatloaf...

Poor Kim Flick was stuck to the flagpole... triple dog dared, of course...

And Larry the leg lamp was all aglow... after all, it IS a major award, you know!

And here's the fabulous electric sex cake a la Emily... *sigh* ... she makes her Momma proud...
Any wacky traditions in your family?
