4th Annual Christmas in September

Pin It Ignore the date shown at the end of the video...



So, the above video should have given you most of the nitty-gritty; however, I realize that there may be a few items I failed to mention, one you should have ignored, and I realize that some of you out there just might have an aversion to YouTube video explanations. In honor of those unnamed individuals I'll post a few quick notes here:

How do you get invited? Oh…it’s easier than you think. If you're reading this blog, you already are; if you live nearby, I’d love for you to come celebrate it with me - unless you're creepy, in that case, feel free to get lost on your way over.

When would it be? September 24th from 6:00 p.m. until around late-thirty; come and leave as you want. Ignore the date on the end of the video...Whoa, just wait a second here, Teachinfourth...why aren’t you celebrating it this weekend? After all, shouldn’t it be the closest weekend to the day of your birthing; isn’t it usually held on that same weekend?

Truth be told, yes.

However, this year there is to be a change...you see, my brother and sister-in-law are both coming into town, younger sisters, my dad and his wife, and maybe even another family member and/or friend or two...if I held Christmas in September back just a few weekends, I make it quite possible for all of them to attend.

Also, I have sets of AMAZING friends who can’t make it for one or other of the next two weekends so I opted to make it for the third so it is better for everyone.

Yeah, I’m pretty much a hero; just give me a cape and an another unlimited supply of super powers.

So, here’s how it’s going to work...

1. Send me an email and let me know if you need directions OR would like to RSVP by means otherwise than commenting (teachinfourth@yahoo.com). Be sure to put “Christmas in September” in the subject line.

2. Bring a present you wouldn’t mind getting for your birthday since we will be having a gift exchange where, if you bring a gift, you get to pick one from under the Christmas tree when you decide to go. Shouldn’t everyone get presents on the new holiday to commemorate my and Jesus’ birthdays?

Yeah, that’s what I thought, too.

3. Bring your favorite Christmas treat to share with everybody else. After all, what’s a celebration without artery-clogging, calorie-ridden deliciousness?

My thoughts exactly.

4. Be prepared for a fun evening where you may come and go, partaking of hot chocolate, rock out to Christmas tunes, and bask in the warm glow of projected holiday films in the ‘underground cinema.’

So, I’ll be seeing you in three weekends with - or without - the bells on.

There in spirit. Don't think my soccer/football/dance schedule will allow it. Maybe someday Hubs and I will come. We both like your blog. A lot!

Heidi said...

I love Christmas, but man, parties where the guys are all the same are the lamest! (haha)

I will be in SLC at the conference center that night. :)

Hope you have more than 4 Jasons and a floating present show up! ;)

I can't even tell you how sad I am that I can't be there. Stupid step-brother picked the wrong weekend to get married...

Linn said...

Once again, this blasted 3000 miles are a bit of a hindrance to me showing up. Happy Birthday to you and have a fabulous party!

Cherie said...

I always thought I threw the best parties till I met you!
How FUN!!

Kalei's Best Friend said...

I remember this video!. Wow, I envy the folks that will be able to join you... A cool house, host and lots of fun....

Shawna said...

Well since I am getting married that afternoon I think it is safe to say I will not be there.... unless its a brief cameo appearance to grab a piece of fudge and swap out a present.

Rachel said...

Drat. I'll be in Montana.......

Lindzena said...

This sounds like pure awesomeness - a fantastic idea, but I fear it is not within my current abilities. At least it is an excuse to listen to Christmas music a little bit early, eh?

Joan said...

Darn it! I'll be in Oklahoma that weekend. Who knew?

Kimberly said...

That was a really cool video! I hope you have a blast at your party!

Jason, as himself said...

If I still lived in Utah, I'd be there FOR SURE.

Mindy said...

Hoping to be there. :-)

Carolyn said...

Seriously, that is awesome! I love it.

M-Cat said...

Gerb said...

Did we tell you that we are coming? Because we are coming. See you Saturday!

Mr. Hughes said...

The Hughes Herd is planning to make an appearance at this amazing shin-dig. In fact, we might just move in and make ourselves at home for the night... :)

Yanet @ 3 Sun Kissed Boys said...

Maybe one day I'll make it. Happy Belated Birthday!!!
