HA hA Ha!!! Why oh why is my husband married to me....well, he may be asking that himself right now as he is mortifyingly reading this post...HEHEHEHE!!! I have to say, I have never laughed so out loud at 2:00am as I did making this white elephant picture!! We had a Christmas party last Saturday, and there was a gift exchange...and in my randomness...I thought i would find a naked statue, and plaster a face of brian on it...so funny!! But then, I got a better one....BODY BUILDER!!! Whooo hooo!! I was one loopy "drunk actin" giddy girl! I am surprised I didn't wake everyone. Well, I sent my finished product to Costco, and was so excited to pick it up, but when i got there...they told me there was a copyright on the picture!! AHHHH!!! So apparently the picture I got online had a copyright label on the bottom...(of all the things I photo-shopped...I couldn't cut that off??!!!) So anyways, they continued to pull the picture out and explain, in front of the great masses of people trying to pick up Christmas cards I am sure, why they cant let me have my copyrighted picture. I then had to beg and plead that it was for a white elephant party. Well, after much deliberation, a talk to a manager, and a sworn promise not to sell my husband...they cut the copyright off the bottom, and after a few laughs...I got my picture!!
I went home, and found a beautiful frame to put him in, and then wrapped an entire ball of yarn around it...I know, pain in the butt, what can I say??!!
Well, come to find out, my picture was the first gift to be opened, out of 18 gifts!! It was SOOOO bad!! Brian had asked me what we were bringing before-hand, so that he knew when our present was opened, and I just told him that it was some picture frame thing!! Well, it was....SORT OF!!! I wish I had brought my camera so that everyone could have seen his face...stunned, I think a little pleased, dismay, envy, shock, and maybe a bit smug....!! Well, the way you play, is that the next person can either pick an opened present, or a new one. Not all of the presents were gag gifts, so I am sure the poor girl who got the picture was a little concerned....NOPE!! Another wife in the room actually snatched the picture up!! She claimed that she wanted the frame...but who can deny a picture like that??!! LOL....just kidding! I think she did want the frame...right?? Just the frame...she just wanted the fra..........hmmmmmmm
I guess all in all, I must have done a good enough photo-shopping job, because one of the couples that we didn't know actually thought Brian may have been a body builder....he was very impressed. I laughed when we had to tell him it wasn't real!! Hopefully you all get a laugh too!!!! Sorry babe.....I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I COULD JUST DROOL!!!
