Karaoke Christmas

I took some Christmas pictures yesterday while we were all dressed up and looking fancy. I also took some pictures of the awesome goodies we made yesterday, gotta make some more today! So without further ado, here's the pictures:





And just to finish up, my last story is about karaoke. Wish I could put an exclamation on the end there, but to be honest it wasn't really "real" karaoke.
A family in my home Ward growing up that I babysat for years had a birthday party for their daughter and had a karaoke machine, and we sang karaoke together. Thats it. Did you know after typing karaoke four or five times it starts looking REALLY weird, karaoke, karaoke, karaoke. It starts reading like kara and okie put together. The best karaoke story I have is from my very first date with David. We went to this Chinese restaurant (the first time I'd ever been to a real Chinese restaurant actually), and you know first dates are a little awkward. Especially because it was pretty much a blind date for us, I'd really never talked to David before (I just knew his family, and waved to him when he was working at the mall). So we're eating and talking and its just kind of weird, and then all of a sudden we hear from another room karaoke singing. Except this isn't just ANY karaoke, its drunk Chinese men singing karaoke! "Weelcome to thee hotelle Caleeforneeya" Oh man, did that break the tension for us, we just started cracking up, and after that it was easy to talk and laugh and get to know eachother. And thats the best I could come up with, thank you, thank you very much!

16 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

You guys look so cute. I wanted to tell you how good you looked yesterday but we only stayed for sacrament. I seriously have been meaning to stop by and hang out but now Abigail has a really nasty cough. This time of year stinks it seems like we are always sick... Ahhhh.

By the way the story of the chinese men singing made me laugh so hard. I have got to see that.

Lassen Family said...

I'm sorry Abigail has a nasty cough! Sam does too, so you wouldn't be spreading anything over here if you want to hang out anyway! I hate the sicky stuff this time of year too!
Glad you liked the story, next time I see you I'll sing it out for ya! ;)

Loved the pictures, Sam's binki even matched...how cute! I love karaoke, except that I hate being the one to sing. I always think of the karaoke scene in "My best friends wedding" I bet the Chinese guys were better...WAY BETTER!!!

Lassen Family said...

Yes Megan thats the shirt! I wish I'd taken a picture of the whole thing and the nylons! Next time I wear it I will! :)
Dang it Kristie!! I was hoping you wouldn't be able to tell, it was bothering me but I didn't know if it was just because I knew I'd pasted it or it really did look bad! Shucks...
