Once again…it’s that time of year! And in response to, or probably better said, not to be outdone by the neighbor’s very precious nativity, complete with a stable and a manger made, by hand, by Walter…Casa de Vinton will be staging our Annual “Live” Happy Family Trailer Park Nativity!
It is fitting, as usual to be staged right outside our single wide. And neither rain, nor cold, nor storms nor dark of night will keep us from dressing up and honoring the Holy Family the night of our precious Lord Jesus’ birth. It’s going to be a spectacular debacle for sure. Not one you will want to miss! Complete with search lights shining through the atmosphere to guide you in and midgets, dressed like elves, giving out snacks and selling tickets to the annual mud-wrestling.
In an effort to help out the sky choppers and the Willer Holler Po-Po our new Daughter-In-Law will be our coordinator/planner extraordinaire and will also be on hand to ‘sign’ for the hearing impaired. I’m not sure if any of the ‘signs’ she has taught me thus far will be needed for this event, but I’m ready for the occasion should a need arrive to insult the traffic flow.
Per usual, Jose’ and I will dress as Joseph and Mary, our Mother. Our trip to the Middle East has equipped us with even better costumes than last year! We’re gonna rock the trailer park as the Holy parents.
And since I couldn’t find a suitable plastic life sized realistic looking baby Jesus, we decided dress our lovely 2 year-old granddaughter, Sha-Nay-Nay again as the baby Jesus. Best of Luck! to us, to keep her stationary in that crib. It may take a few more tie-wraps than last year, but I’m locked and loaded with them.
Of course, our children, God love their little hearts, will once again play the Wise Men from Afar…this is because they STILL KNOW EVERYTHING!
Additionally, Chico, the dog, and Clyde, the cat, are cast as the lambs, complete with little lamb sweaters I made myself. They are so cute!
The other two grand-sons, Skeeter and Nacho, will be dueling drummer boys and/or air-guitar players depending on their kindergarten/toddler moods and whether or not they’ve had a nap today.
And finally, as per the usual, our Son-In-Law, will once again be cast as this year’s Ass!…
Merry Christmas to All! And to All a good night!
Gratitude and Blessings be yours,
Your very BEST friend in the whole entire world!
