Gag Gifts Galore

So we had a good time at Kevin’s family last night.

Kevin’s mom made brisket and we brought (bought) a honey-baked ham. *drool*

There were about twenty people there.

After we ate, we cleared out the tables to make room for the gag gift exchange game.

WARNING: We really get into this game. You might want to turn your speakers down.

Here we are, sitting around and waiting to begin. It’s that period of time when you all sort of sit around and stare at each other.



The smorgasbord of gag gifts to choose from.


My sister-in-law and her crazy family – never a dull moment with those peeps around.


My other sister-in-law has just picked her gift (I can’t remember what it was) and my niece’s husband (the dark-headed guy sitting on the love seat) breaks out into song after someone else asks where the “pooping moose” is this year.

That kid cracks me up.

And the story behind the pooping moose – it was a gag gift that first made it’s rounds in 2005.


We got it one year and it spent several years in our garage. Then it resurfaced, and my sister-in-law’s family got it; it spent some time in their garage and then resurfaced.

So this chocolate moose has been passed around for seven years and you can imagine how gross it’s getting. I’m not sure if we’ll continue the tradition next year or what, but I’m pretty sure we’re going to re-gift the gag gift that Jazz received this year – a bobble-head Yoda wearing a Santa hat. haha!

Another popular gag gift this year was the “Forever Lazy.” It’s basically a snuggie with feet and a button-down bottom. One of my nephews was the lucky winner of that one and had to model it for everyone.


We ended the night with another one of my nephews picking one of our gag gifts – a set of five presidential Pez containers.

It was a really fun night. Kevin’s family is always a lot of fun and I’m blessed to be part of such a great family.
