Old Fashioned Hillbilly Christmas 2016

 

Hello All,

 

The family is once again hanging around the old home place, though the sheriff ran us out last year. We tossed the No Trespassing and Condemned signs in the fireplace. It turned cold so the kids borrowed the neighbor’s firewood. The kids are always so cute. The sheriff posted guards on the town Christmas tree, but they fell asleep, so Uncle Bob and Grandpa took it home.

Cousin Al snuck out of jail and took the kids to see Santa, but Santa saw them first and ran away. The kids brought home eight reindeer, and venison roast sounds good for Christmas dinner. Can Santa pull the sleigh with seven reindeer? Six? Even less?

Uncle Bob passed out, so the kids turned him into a live snowman. When he comes to, he’s going to be too cold to do anything. (except he has lots of antifreeze) The cute kids found chickens and a goat in a neighbor’s backyard, so Cousin Cindy has milk and eggs to add to Uncle Bob’s bourbon to make her famous eggnog.

Grandma can’t read so she can’t use cookbooks. She baked a grasshopper pie without a recipe, and everyone is afraid to eat it, except the baby just dug into it. Now a couple elves are snooping around, asking about reindeer. Nosy elves. The baby just got sick on Cousin Al, somebody clean the stink up.

Uncle Joe is playing Christmas carols on a fiddle missing 2 strings. He sings offkey, out-of-tune, and off-pitch, making the hounds howl and the baby wail. Cousin Al couldn’t stand anymore, and the sheriff won’t answer the phone, so Cousin Al is hitchhiking back to the jail. Cousin Ralph wrapped the presents, but he forgot tags. We get to wrestle over who gets what, but Grandma is so mean we give her whatever presents she wants.

The kids tied the elves up and made Christmas ornaments out of them. Uncle Joe is still singing carols, Santa showed up and asked for his things back, the baby spit up all over me, and the reindeer ran away before we got any steaks. Grandpa found Uncle Bob’s bourbon stash. Now Grandpa’s on the roof, and Cousin Ralph can’t get him down. Did I mention that my head hurts from too much eggnog? Yes, just more Christmas fun just like last year.

 

Merry Christmas,

You know who
