Merrrryyyy Mikemas!

My brother-in-law came up with a clever new holiday, in honor of his new “BFF“, while he was visiting New York this year… Mikemas.

Mikemas consisted of extremely competitive tennis matches (team BFF, The Supremes, and Sista/Sista– The Supremes, which consisted of my mom & dad, obviously dominated us all), classic tunes and a failed attempt at karaoke to Tom Petty, Neil Diamond, Dion and The Steve Miller Band,  lots of deliciousness including bruschetta, caprese, garlic bread, baked ziti, and of course, red wine (you’d think we were Italian, but we obviously had to have a strictly Italian dinner in honor of Mikemas). 

To wrap up the holiday, we all played a very competetive game of Apples to Apples, which lasted well over 2 1/2 hours, and got in some much needed family time. 

Some lessons learned from Mikemas:  Pokemon is violent, Carey Grant is dainty, killer whales are magical, and Barney is legendary. 

I think we’ll make Mikemas an annual family tradition from now on…
