I Used To Hate AC/DC

We had a wrap party last night, no not that kind of wrap party or this kind either. It was in preparation for a raucous game we tried at the Dempsey Christmas party last year. You use big balls (ha) of plastic-wrapped treats which someone unwraps while the person to their right rolls dice until they get doubles.

Go Susie go

The Irish Aunts oversee the proceedings with a wee bit of cheesecake

Danny had a wee bit of cheesecake too

We had more than just batteries and booze. There were five party balls for three different age groups. The elders (us) got two. What happened to party balls anyway? "No Party Balls" was actually written into my lease in the 90s.

Tis herself, Aunt Sara

Ta da. Cousin Nanci, our host

Cousin Rusty, our other host, on the hunt for fallen scraps of pizza

The best camera is the one you have and all I had was my little PNS

Stories were told, delicious food was consumed and balls were wrapped. That's me in the reflection, full of Starbursts and Tootsie Rolls

Finally, a good photo of our big balls by Nanci along with the insane hoop hats which I broke while trying to put together. Notice the tape. (That last Big Balls link is a cover sung by chipmunks.)

  1. I think we should have both balls going at the same time. I’ll have to ask the bosses what they think!

    1. Insanity. I'd like to play Big Balls while we're unwrapping. I see you're still up.

    1. It turned out to be a lot more fun than I imagined, Nancy. Yes, the wrap party was a blast and kind of nostalgic, like times in grandma's kitchen, the ultimate compliment. Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!

    1. Danny, our resident cat didn't bother to check out anything but the cheesecake. I'd love to see what you guys would have done with all those toys and Saran Wrap.

    1. Yeah, I filled up on candy. But there was cheesecake (the cat checked that out sneaky little demon), pizza, drinks and candy.

    1. They certainly are, Sharon. We lost my Aunt Ginny, the eldest Irish Aunt, close to this time last years. Her photo is on the bottom in the side bar. Cherish what you have when you have it because you could lose it at any time.

    1. I bet it is and I think you'd also have fun when we march in the St. Paddy's Day parade. Believe me I'd invite you in a heartbeat if you lived here—hell, consider this an invite no matter where you are this March.
