Family Bowl

A few years ago, we did away with the Christmas grab between the siblings and the cousins.  Which everybody was happy about.  In its place, my sister and I decided to take our kids bowling.  We did this for a couple of years and added people as we went along.  Last year, The Sis sent out an invite to the whole family.  This Sis with her Cutie Patootie daughter.................



She found a bowling alley that is all of six lanes and let's you bring in your own food.  There is a prize for high guy/girl bowler and I took home the sweet trophy I picked up off the curb for being the only chick to break a hunnerd.  Twice.  There was an assortment of door prizes............mustache of the week, a Virgin Mary bread press, juvenile delinquent mints and a grow your own mermaid to name a few.  There was a prize for 2012 Nuptials that these guys won..............


And the Hofmeister Ham Brother brought Me Scotty Snowman back to pass to the next family who is obligated to post pictures of his adventures throughout this year.


Like the previous year, a good time was had by all.  If you are stuck in the exchanging dollars gift route, I recommend A Bowlathon.  Besides counting the pins you knocked down, you'll be counting your blessings, and if there's no outstanding warrants, you can take a big, ol' group pic and post it wherever you want.

  2. That looks like more fun than a barrel of monkeys! Our clan may definitely borrow this idea next year at Thanksmas (we celebrate Thanksgiving & Christmas together)at my folks' in Clarksville, AR. Not much there, but there's got to be a bowling alley. Happy New Year to you, my friend!:)
