"catch phrase"

tonight, we met up with my side of the family because one of our cousins (angelene) from new mexico was in town for some leadership classes. she is in the air force and has received the honor and title as a big chief. (i forgot the exact abbreviation for it, but it's a big deal.) so we all ate dinner together, and then headed over to tita karmie's house for a game night. as soon as we walked through her door, the mabster went running straight to all of tita karmie's mardi gras flair. it was hilarious.she had mounds full of different bead necklaces, stuffed animals, and a huge bag of miniature moon pies (which the mabster inhaled 2 while there). the mabster seriously took a dive into all the beads, and then we proceeded to bury her in them. here's a quick pic of her in all the colorful glory...we all sat down in tita karmie's den as she started up the fire pit. we chatted it up with angelene, and let the kids play with all the beads. cousin carson started crawling last week, and he was a hoot to watch. i love that little man! we'd set out a pair of big shiny beads a couple of feet in front of him, and then he'd take off like a bat outta hell. so fast and SO stinkin' cute! lake season is going to be a blast watching all these kids play together.so the best part of the night was starting to unfold. we got into teams and started a game of "catch phrase." i can not tell you how funny this was to play, especially considering jay and i were on opposite teams. the man was cracking me up. i've never seen his eyeballs get so big as he anxiously tried to explain the phrase to his teammates without saying the words on the buzzer. it was hysterical! we played two rounds, but the last one was the best. we switched around teammates to where it was me, karla, and tre versus karmie, jay, and angelene. OH, we whooped them. i'd like to believe that it was because we know how to read each other even when the words won't come out right and the pressure is on. too much fun! we have now decided that a monthly game night is a MUST. nothing says "family fun" like a healthy dose of family competition. =P

That was FREAKING HILARIOUS last night!! I haven't laughed that hard in SO long, I almost started crying! Me, you, and Tre can dominate anyone! Jay was too funny, pointing to outside screaming "that thing out there!!! Come on!!" LOL, the tree? porch? lights? Family game night is a MUST now...
