Fun and Games with Jenners - write a fake brag letter

I'm playing Game 11 over at Jenner's Life with Little One and more. Her challenge: Write and Over-The-Top Holiday letter. This was a lot of fun. As someone who actually writes one of these, I found this one to be more entertaining and am considering sending it instead of the one I usually send. LOL

Thanks for the fun, Jenners.

Season’s Greetings from Nome, Alaska.

We decided to take a spur of the moment trip to the amazing state of Alaska. Thankfully, Inez, our children’s’ live-in tutor was able to make some changes in her schedule and travel with us. This allowed hubby and me some well-deserved kid-free time to go deep see arctic fishing. Hubby was fortunate enough to catch yet an undiscovered fish. The deep sea arctic fishing board is entertaining naming the species for him.

The kiddos are doing great. Oldest will soon be 11 and can speak six languages fluently. She is currently involved in soccer, tia-kwo-do, softball, cheer leading and all-state figure skating. As you can imagine this keeps us hoping.

Middle turned 8 over the summer and mastered Chinese. She was invited to speak at an all girls' school in China about her American culture. It was a great time for all of us as we were able to take in the many sights China has to offer. She continues to grow artistically and currently has paintings on display in museums in New York, Paris and California. If you are interested in purchasing any of her pieces, you may contact her agent directly at 555-1212.

Youngest is and always will be our little spitfire. He is six years old and in the 4th grade. Because of his amazing intelligence we are uncertain if we will be able to continue to school him in the United States. We are looking into doctoral programs abroad.

Hubby is excitedly awaiting word from the Arctic Fishing Board about the name of his newly discovered fish species and continues his work with the Center for Disease Control. He is making great progress with his research involving cures for Diabetes, Cancer, ALS and Weiner dog dwarfism.

I have been busy working on my 200th novel, which has been selected as the Oprah book of the month for March 2010. Look for my wink and ear tug when we premiere the book on her show early that month.

Our family missions’ trips to Cambodia, India, Russia, Indonesia and Shrelanka were a great success and we hope to be able to travel even more in 2010.

May the blessings you receive next year be as abundant as the exaggerations contained in this letter!

So fun!! I double-dog dare you to send it out in lieu of the real letter!! After I wrote mine, I was so depressed at the state of my real life, that I started getting a little down. I love the line about the wink and nod on Oprah!

Great letter! I'd love to get one like that in the mail...then I'd ritually burn it, as my life is such a bore compared to yours!

"deep see" - for shame. {*grin*}

I'll go with Jenners - send it out with the real thing.

Good thing you got in for Oprah's march 2010 show since she is throwing in the towel!

Send it as the real letter without any explainations. I am sure you will hear from lots of old friends.
