With holiday season coming up, Pink and Rick worked on some tips to make sure your family time is a happy time. Also, I wanted to post pictures from Labor Day because I promised my Aunt Maris!
Here are some of Pink and Rick’s top tips for a good family celebration.
Tip 1: Don’t let crazy weather ruin your holiday
Check out creepy Hurricane Isaac!
Tip 2: Take a family picture
While we were waiting on Isaac to go away we took this family picture of the dogs. From left to right, Harley, Pink, Rick, and Hannah. We had to hold a treat under the camera to get them to act right. Maybe you could use this trick for the kids in your family?!
Tip 3: Find an activity everyone likes
After the storm Mr. We’ve Had Them Since They Were Tiny threw a duck toy for the dogs. Maybe your family likes to play games, talk, or… eat (like mine), but find something everyone likes to do…or likes to chew on!
Tip 4: Find some good entertainment
We went to the Razorback game! Maybe this holiday season you can go bowling, to a movie, or watch some old home movies?
Tip 5: Remember to laugh…at each other
Rick got stuck in the garage because the floors were so slick. We laughed at his pain, isn’t that what families are supposed to do?
Tip 6: Indulge your crazy relatives
This is my brother with his ridiculous potato gun. I don’t know how to defend this creation. Except, he’s in college to be an engineer, and he’s never hurt anyone. Just himself occasionally. And, he’s really smart and probably going to make triple what I do when he graduates.
Step 7: Help clean up
Pink and Rick smelled bad. Really bad. Like mud and sweat rolled around in some garbage. So we took them to the river behind my parent’s house and my uncle helped soap them up. We put them in the river to rinse!
Tip 8: Have some fun!
Here’s Rick, the happiest puppy I know!
My beautiful and fun cousin Karissa!
Can you say water dogs?
We all joined!
Another family picture!
Tip 9: Ignore relatives with an attitude.
Notice who’s not in the group picture above?!?! Yep, it’s Pink. He wouldn’t come out of the water. So when your relative won’t get up from the TV, just ignore them. And take a picture of them being stubborn… so you can laugh at them later.
Tip 10: Don’t be afraid to break a few laws
Let’s get crazy this holiday season! I’m officially endorsing trespassing!
Tip 11: Make up a crazy dance
This is my COMPLETELY SOBER dad doing the “kneesles” dance. That’s a combination of knees and measles. I promised him I wouldn’t post these pictures… but I lied. There’s a song that goes with this dance. I think it was… “I’ve got the kneesles, I’ve got the kneeseles, I’m infected and I need a vaccination!”
I think the crazy police are going kidnap me in my sleep…just for writing that.
Here’s Mr. We’ve Had Them Since They Were Tiny watching the dance!
Tip 12: Show some love
My brother and Pink. This picture makes me laugh out loud while I’m alone. Pink’s body is hilarious. How does it curve like that?!?! Is he made of jello?
My brother and Rick. This picture didn’t go so well. But, it’s equally hilarious.
Tip13: Hit balls–not your family members
If all else fails, go to the driving range/batting cages. This way you can take out your aggression. And not go to jail!
So that’s it. Pink and Rick wored really hard putting together that list. Well, they worked hard eating a bowl of food a minute ago.
Do you have any tips for having a fun family holiday?
