You have to dance...

So for New Years I decided to have our annual party again. This time I made a "rule". You had to choreograph a dance, dress the part, and perform at the party. I was very excited about this cause Nick and I were going to go "old school" (for us anyway). Well my parents were on board right away. They thought it would be fun. My older sister Lindsay was prepared to do it too. Then came my younger sister...she was not for it at all. I was trying to be tough and tell her she can't come if she didn't do a dance and she said "fine I guess I am not coming". She can dance really well too, so I thought that was odd. Turns out Danny, my brother in law was the one who didn't want to do it. So I was thinking, OK well one is not bad. Then Nick said "I think you need to drop this whole dance thing" He wanted to invite his boss and his wife and said that no one was going to dance in front of people they didn't know. Well they are like family to us, but not to my sisters...so I dropped it. I told my parents we're not doing it and I am not certain they heard me...LOL

They came early and called for us to come outside as they were pulling up. They circled the block to wait for us to come outside, and came back down blaring their music to some rap. My dad was driving and my mom in the passenger seat and then my grandma in the backseat.


Yes, that is braids in my moms hair. My Grandma braided her hair in like 20 braids. Honestly it looked like dreads from afar. I was cracking up.


My sweet innocent Grandma, being transformed into a rapper...it was the funniest thing I have ever seen.


My Dad, Mom, and Grandma throwing up "signs" They each have some chains. My dad's says "Mac Daddy", my mom's says "Mac Mama", and my grandma's says "Mac Granny". My dad has a Mercedes symbol cut out of the top of a coffee can *I think*. My mom has a cross with bling. My parents are seriously the best. They made my night. They even did a choreographed dance. I do have pics of that also, but I may save them for my vault. Nah, who am I kidding :)

OK just a sneak peak. Ignore the Tupperware containers to the left, I was slacking on Christmas decorations.

Mac Granny...she rocked the house. She moves like she is 30.

The girls got into the spirit of dancing too.

We had a great night, good food, perfect company and wonderful wine :) Happy New Year.

That sounds like the BEST party ever. I totally would have come. I wish my family would do stuff like that. Nope, they are absolute party poopers!

I didn't know you had a blog! Thanks for leaving a comment. Veda's test went well and now were waiting( 2 weeks!) for the results.
Your party sounds like SO much fun. I love that your family totally get in to it. The pic of your grandma dancing is the best!
