Feliz Navidad From Elastic Y Los Mini-Infideles!

My own personal S.Q.U.A.T Team getting in some valuable squatting practice time.

Bonga, Bonga, Bonga As We Do The Christmas Conga!

Traffic Jam Delays On The East Side Slide.

Here's A Picture From The Day The Mini-Infidels Set A World Record For Yule Log Eating.

I'm Ashamed To Admit It But Yes, It's True......My Kids Are Really Heavy Drinkers.

This Is A Little Pose I Like To Call "Keep Backing Up To Get The Perfect Shot Until You Step In A Pile Of Fresh Duck Doo-Doo." True Story. :(
So Then I Got A Call On Friday From The Bank Manager Saying That It Was Urgent And She Needed To Speak With Me Immediately.

I Freaked Out. Just A Little Bit.

And Then She Announced That My Sunbum Won Their Super Ginormous, Colossal, Gargantuan, Buttload-Of-Crap Stocking Giveaway! As You Can See Sunbum Was Very Excited. Upon Arriving Home She Promptly Separated And Wrapped Up Most Of The Toys Inside In Preparation Of A Re-Gifting Mission .

No Need For A DNA Test. This One's Definitely Mine.

And The Winning Streak Just Continues On At Our House. Yesterday I Found Out That I Had Won The Carrier Complaint Contest And That My Boss Would Be The Sucker Out Delivering My Route For Me This Morning In Freezing Temperatures! And No I Didn't Win The Complaint Contest Based On The Amount Of Complaining I Do. It Was A Reward For The Lowest Customer Complaint Ratio. We Won't Mention My Ninja-Like Skills In Cutting Phone Service So People Couldn't Call The Complaint Line.

From Each And Every SIngle One Of Us To Each And Every Single One Of You We Wish You A Very Merry Christmas!

Wow, those are great pics of the kiddies! You are fortunate to have such a nice family. Merry Christmas to you all!

Bee said...


You have your own rock band! We tried talking my mom into having one more could to make us 6 so we could sing Brady Bunch songs down escalators but she said something about morning sickness, diapers, potty training-excuses excuses! :o)

Carrot Jello said...

A Merry Christmas to you Mrs. Infidel.

I worked hard on my accent. I hope you appreciated it.

Bee said...

"one more could to make us 6"

"one more kid to make us 6"

i hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas!!

Nancy Face said...

I LOVED this! Every single one of those pictures are awesome, and I'm sure it was even worth stepping in duck doo-doo! ;)

Hooray for Sunbum, winning that stocking!

Yippee for you, winning the Carrier Complaint contest!

Lia said...

While brown antlers are perhaps more realistic, I like the red ones better.

Congrats on all the winnings. Do you want to pick some lotto numbers for me?

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I'm still working. Tis the life of the self-employed. No holidays for us....or insurance.....or Christmas bonuses.....or respect.

I'll be around to visit y'all soon. :)


b. said...

More evidence of what a great mom you are!!
Those pictures are adorable!!

So sorry about the duck poop.....dang!

Melissa said...

Love the pictures! But just out of curiosity... was there a particular reason that you capitalized Every Word In Each Sentence? I Was Just Wondering...
Happy New Year!

wynne said...


(yeah, it's late. What're you gonna do--call blogger complaint dept and complain about me?)

wynne said...

And what did Sunbum do with the stocking after she had emptied it? Did she try to put one of her siblings in it, for nefarious purposes known only to herself and Santa?

wynne said...

Or perhaps she is just going to wear it herself.

Or make a holiday craft out of it. Like...oh, holiday hairnets with glitter.

wynne said...

And I really enjoyed the pics of the mini-infidels.

And that big red door? That's your house, isn't it?

Lisa said...

Look at those cute infidel kiddies!

Hooray for the winners in the infidel household!!!

We were there we ate, we opened gifts, ate some more, and now we are home.

I saw your comment--we were in Katy. And made sure we ate at Pappasito's before we left. Yum!

And that weather was crazy! Crazy cold!

Sketchy said...

Yeah for the mini-infidels! Happy Holidays (as this is now the acceptable holiday phrasing now that Christmas has passed but not New Years).

Lauren said...

Those pictures of your kids are great! You have such cute children! I love the sausage one.

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

Duck Doo-Doo? What profanity!

I will tell my boys that your daughters are available for betrothal purposes. Your boys are pretty cute too but too much intermarrying might be kind of creepy, don't you think?

No Cool Story said...

Wooo hoo! Way to go Sunbum!

Wait, is that a gorilla?

JustRandi said...

Hey - Congrats on YOUR award! I think that's fantastic. Even if you had to commit a felony to get it.

omar said...

Congrats, Sunbum!

Child #4 doesn't look happy in that slide photo :)

Tori :) said...

Merry Belated Christmas my friend!!

Your kiddos are beautiful!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Wynne- No, we don't actually live in a barn. Though we do act like animals.
Sunbum made her own fishnet stockings out of the bag and a mini-skirt out of the giant label. I'm so freakin proud of her!

Melissa- Because we are winners, you see. And when you're in the Winner's Circle you can do whatever you want...Including Capitalizing The First Letter Of Every Word. :)

TORI!!!! TEXAS TORI!!!!-Gracias!

Omar- Yeah, but with one threat of the reindeer sausage grinder, she perked right up.

justrandi- We all gotta do what we gotta do sometimes.

NCS- It's a King Kong.....NOT your ordinary everyday run-of-the-mill gorilla.

millie- As long as you're not eyeing Papi as a possible future husband number 2, we're cool. One lady at church did just that. And told me about it. I now placed her at the top of my enemy list.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Bee- We're more like the Partridge Family onle we don't have a rockin psychedelic bus....one day, I hope too, though. Come on, Get Happy!

Thanks for all the comments and well wishes!

on.the.run said...

Cute pictures - we took pictures in front of those red doors too... you have good taste!

carronin said...

Merry belated Christmas to you and your good-looking kids. I love the buttload of crap stocking, too funny!
