Its that time of the year again!


Last night my family got together to watch our holiday classic, Scrooged. This is something we have done for as long as I can remember. The first time Nik watched it with us Dad made bingo cards with quotes from the movie, just to torture Nik I think. Well, this year my cousin Jesse is in SLC for school and joined us, so break out the bingo cards! Mom did it this year and even had prizes for all of us! It was a great time! I got bingo first and my prize bag had a dice game called Swap! It looks pretty cool!

I think the best part was knowing a quote was coming up and anticipating its delivery. Here are some of my favorites:

"I never liked a girl enough to give her 12 sharp knives"

"The bitch hit me with a toaster" (sorry if that offended anyone)

"All day long I listen to people give me excuses why they can't work. My legs hurt. My back aches. I'm only four."

Frank Cross: Grace, what in the hell is this?
Grace: Oh, it's a painting, one of my kids did. See, there's Santa Claus and there's Mrs. Claus. Frank Cross: Honey, how many fingers does Mrs. Santa Claus have here?
Grace: Eleven.
Frank Cross: Eleven. Right. [rips it down]
Frank Cross: It's crap. Lose it. I don't want it on the wall.

"I don't mind you shooting at me, Frank, but take it easy on the Bacardi "

"Now I have to kill.....all of you!"

That is just a small sampling of the awesome quotes this movie has to offer! I hope you take the opportunity to see this Christmas Classic!

Our family movie is So I Married An Axe Murderer. It was at the dollar theater when we were pregnant with number one. It was 2 hours for airconditioning for 2 dollars, the month of August, and Lisa ended up 2.5 weeks overdue. We ended up seeing it about 23 times.

I have never though about making a game of it like this though. Great idea!

HILARIOUS MOVIE! We always watch White Christmas with good old Bing Crosby :)

I'm glad you had fun. It just isn't Christmas until you hear, "Sometimes you have to slap them in the face to get their attention."

NO WAY! that is one of our classics too, right up there with anything muppety and christmasy.
I would be very interested in seeing how those bingo cards work- sounds like a great idea!

One of my favorites is

Frank Cross: The Jews taught me this great word. "Schmuck". I was a schmuck, and now I'm not a schmuck.
