thank you gen, 
for requesting
'the top ten crazy things that happen at the happ house'
xmas style.

1. can we just start with the fact that 
on average
we housed 15-21 people for a week. 
yea.

2. uncle george's crazy morning wakeup calls/departure countdowns.
on speaker phone.
once every 27 seconds.

3. walmart tag.
manager didn't like that so much.

4. mac party at the kitchen table.
i think we had at least 10 laptops?

5. ten years and only one broken arm. 
that deserves an applause.

6. the plan to steal the presents,
hide them in the bed of uncle's truck,
and convince isaac that santa forgot our house.

7. action sports movie. 
versions one. two. three. four?

8. the number of daily trips to the grocery store.

9. the bloody decapitated snowman
that colin made in the front yard.

Huh - 10 years and only 1 broken arm, not bad. That makes 4th of July worse? 15 Years with one split skull and rope burns on one neck (all in the Ray family I might add)

And that despite 'events' in fog and at twilight.

Does eating a pre-licked smore count as calamity if you didn't end up in the emergency room? It does for me (yep, Ray family again)

WOW 15-21 people? I have 2 (however one of them is so needy that she should count as 4 at least) and 1 more on the way on top of my daughter and boyfriend and thought that was bad. I bow down to you.
