BINGO {Christmas 2011}

Christmas came.
Christmas went.
Christmas kicked butt.

We’ve celebrated the season with round 1 (at Nana and Gan’s house Christmas Eve), round 2 (at our home Christmas morning) and the finale (at Sassy and Pop’s house Christmas night).  I’m pooped but not quite ready to take down the tree. Or the gingerbread men. Or the wreaths.
Okay, who am I kidding– I woke up and turned on the Christmas carols first thing, ate some leftover sausage and egg casserole {a traditional meal I refuse to let go of} and even have most of the gifts still sitting in their same place.  I want to hold on to Christmas just a little longer…

It is the most wonderful time of the year after all…

The presents have been unwrapped…

And the reindeer ate their gingerbread house…

Stockings depleted….

Toys have yet to be put away in their new homes…

Instead, we played Bingo on Christmas night. Yes, Bingo. We’re “that” family. Think Griswalds, but proud.

And for good reason too- the stakes were high at $1 per card.

Even Meme got into it… with her lucky glasses.

Our little friend Beau has decided to start a Bingo Club. We will play once a month, at $1/card, except for the last round which will be double or nothing to blackout the card.

Guess who won the first Bingo? She has asked that I take her to the Country Dollar store so she can buy 31 pieces of costume jewelry with her $31 winnings. That’s my girl- when it comes to accessorizing, more is more.

Speaking of, Mr. R gave me beautiful earrings on Christmas morning. Just in time for the peak {the “rut”} of hunting season. He is no fool, as a nice gift equals more time in the woods for him. Well played Big Daddy- it worked.

I’ve got to get back to my Christmas carols and more Merry, Merry.
