MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE ADDICTS!!

Note: TinyCo is giving everyone a gift of 25 clams to everyone.  So be sure to login today to claim your free clams!

Silent Night…

What do you mean it’s silent round here? Where’d everybody go?

Holy Night…

The only thing Holy round here is Bunny’s Jeans.

All is Calm…

No it’s not!! People are wondering why their comments are just sitting in moderation!!

All is Bright…

Well I dunno bout the rest of you, but I know a few round here that ain’t so bright.  😉Merry Christmas Griffin House Card

In case you didn’t notice or don’t celebrate the Holiday, it just so happens to be Christmas here in the U.S. A. for the Addicts Team.

Bunny is hopped up on Chocolates (or so she claims) while Alissa is sneaking into the basement to break into the stash of Bunny Water while nobody is looking.

Short Story Long… We are pre-occupied today and hope YOU are too. I think all of us need a day to step away and just relax, unwind, and enjoy those around us. So you won’t see much going on here. Your comments will sit in moderation. Pretty much it is going to be a quiet day on the Addicts sites while we….BRACE YOURSELVES…take a day off. SHOCKING I KNOW!!!

No worries, we promise all won’t be lost in a day. We always have our eyes and ears open. Even if you do not see or hear from us, does not mean we aren’t watching out for you. We will return in full force tomorrow with any changes and info you have come to expect from us. SO ENJOY THE SILENCE! ( I know Alissa will be most grateful to not have to listen to Bunny’s chatter. Lol.)

And now on to some good old fashioned fun and AWWWWwwwwwwwwww moments. For those of you that do not know us Addicts very well….yet….here is a peak into a bit of our real lives with our favorite Christmas Moments.


A Bit o’ Bunny

I grew up in a location WAY up high in the mountain ranges so I have a LOT of snow, am used to a TON of snow, and miss it when there just isn’t any snow. Snow means slippery roads, sidewalks, and streets…not to mention snowball fights, forts, and just all out mischief. Many of times I am grateful this Bunny has some fluff. Helps when I fall down hard on my backside. Lol. My poor ears poke out, so gotta keep them nice and covered to avoid the frostbite. My wish is that we DON’T lose power on Christmas this year…again…like every other year before. It’s fun to hang out by Candlelight, but not that fun to try and cook a ham and cookies with them. Lol

Now, for my serious awww moment. I have lost many family members over the past few years. 19 in total. Not many of us left now (siblings, Mom, 1 Gramms), so holidays can be a bit rough. Out of all of them, I have been effected most by the loss of my Father. He always called me Christmas Day. It was his tradition with me. We had a falling out and didn’t talk much anymore, so this day was very precious to me. To get that call, hear his voice, and share our laughs (got my humor from him). He was also the one to pick out the fresh Christmas Tree for my family. So in losing him…well…I lost the love for Christmas. Bah Humbugged over it for many years. Didn’t want to even celebrate it. Stopped putting up decorations, making goodies, or even making an effort to do anything Christmas. This of course didn’t stop me from giving to others, just… kinda forgot about myself.

This all changed last year.  A very dear and kind friend close to my heart did the most amazing thing ever. Hearing the story of my heartaches, they wanted to help make last year a fresh start. Bring the Love & Joy back into Christmas for me. First, a real tree showed up. First one I have had in a long time. I was overjoyed. What a sweet thought. It was beautiful. Made me tear up. Next…the most amazing thing possible anyone could do for me… My Dad owned beautiful guitars. Acoustic and Electric. Played and sang very well. I had one of his until I left home at a young age. I was never able to get it back. Even after he was killed. It saddened me because I loved to play because of him, but gave up. Just was too hard. Short story Long…this kindhearted friend, after much research, purchased a guitar that resembled the one my Father had and sent it to me for Christmas. I couldn’t speak when it arrived on my doorstep. Tears of such a magnitude I can not even describe rolled down my eyes when I opened it and didn’t stop (yes, even this silly crazy Bunny cries for real). For someone to do something so kind, thoughtful, and generous…it takes my breath away. I won’t ever forget that Christmas. Thank You SBE!!

This year Alissa, my bossum buddy (yah, I just said that. Lol) well she won’t let me get away with being down at this time of year either. She calls to harass…err…check up on me all the time. Being that pain in the arse that I love and adore. It is so amusing how someone you meet online can become as close to you as any family member ever could. She does so much for me, sometimes by just doing nothing at all. She is like me in many ways, gives right from the heart. Wants to just give and give and give to others. All about everyone else. Nothing for yourself. I think it is why we blend so well together. 

This Holiday Season I challenge YOU to be selfless. Find someone to Pay It Forward To. Take no credit, just do it to do it. Touch someone’s heart in ways you would never imagine. Take it from someone who has been low, has had nothing, has gone without…the best gift you can EVER give…no matter the time of year…is one from the heart. One that speaks to another’s heart. All you have to do is listen and watch. Opportunities are all around you. To bring joy to another without expecting anything in return, it is the best gift ever! 🙂 

 Hoppy Holidays Everyone! 


Alissa the Amazing

Wow my favorite Christmas memory.  You know, honestly, I can’t say I have 1 particular favorite memory.  I guess you could say I’m extremely lucky. I’ve always had amazing Christmases.  From a young age I remember my parent’s house being decorated over the top with Christmas.  We had Christmas trees in every room…each with a different theme…Christmas dishes, decorations EVERYWHERE and the best Christmas lights outside.  (if you’re wondering where I get my love of Christmas from…this could be it! :)) And Christmas morning…well Christmas morning was (and still is) always magical!  

I’m extremely blessed to have such a close family.  We all celebrate Christmas together (even as we grow older).  We open presents together Christmas morning (we never started until everyone was awake and downstairs), have breakfast together and just enjoy being together for that 1 magical day (yes I know very Brady Bunch!)  And of course Christmas was never complete with out watching…the best movie ever…It’s A Wonderful Life.  A Christmas tradition I won’t dare let my mom forget about! 

Now that we’re all older, and my siblings have little ones the Christmas magic is still there.  It’s the most amazing thing to see my nieces and nephews light up Christmas morning (yes we all spend Christmas morning together) when they realize Santa came!  It’s like reliving my childhood all over again! 

So to say I have 1 ultimate Christmas memory is essentially impossible for me. Because each and every Christmas has provided me with so many great memories and “warm fuzzy feelings” that to pick one is like trying to pick a favorite child….you just can’t do it!  (although I totally know I’m my mom’s favorite!)  Like I said earlier…I guess I’m just lucky because for me every Christmas is magical!  

Of course I could talk about the Christmas with the Red Rider BB Gun 😉 


 

So from our hearts and homes to yours, may your Holidays be filled with happiness and joy!! Be warm, be safe, and be happy!!

BUNNY & ALISSA

Merry Christmas Snowy Forest All A Good Night

  1. Thanks to my sister, I got a $25 Google play card which I used to buy clams =) I bought both gene and Paul, cleveland, and the brain damaged horse! I am so excited! The only characters I have left to get (not just for the Christmas event) is Consuela and Buzz Killington, and I have the cinco de mayo outfit for consuela too! I am in the process of wrapping puppy Brian, and I’m collecting things for Angel Bruce. Also on a funny and ironic note,

  2. Hey Merry christmas to Alissa and Bunny. Im a little late but better late than never. Just wondering here but i got all the main prizes from the box that cost 1000 christmas cookies (sorry forgot the name) and it disappeared. I’m guessing it probably should (so that tinyco isnt giving away too many clams) but now i have unlocked santa and i got 100,000 free cookies. If i could use those cookies for that box i would be so happy. Basically my question is, is that box supposed to disappear after i got all the main prizes?

  4. Hello “Team Addict’s” I happen to be a tried and true Family Guy addict since way before the game was even a twinkle in the eyes of the great creators over at TinyCo. I was even one of the 1000’s of people who petitioned the FOX Network to bring it back after the wise ones over at Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network started playing old episodes in syndication. Anyway now more to the point of this email I own every episode on dvd and I also happen to have a degree in Computer science and Information Technology, I’m also disabled and was wondering if you folks have any job openings for a writer/ Web design / Maintenance person who has tons of free time and can work from home. Thanks for your consideration.

  7. it’s the very end of my christmas day as i read your stories. no shame in my saying that tears fell as i read bunny’s, and i easily recognized my wife’s family in alissa’s tale. what a great season this is, when for no reason other than good will, we share our spirits with each other. Thanks, i enjoyed that. after a day of gifting, eating and drinking, guitar playing and singing, and FG,TQFS, of course, this was a pleasant dessert.
    Merry Christmas you two

  8. Kind of disappointed that it appears I won’t be getting Jesus before the event ends, and Puppy Brian is pushing it a bit too. The procrastinators have been insanely stingy with his wrapping paper, and I’ve yet to get the Yeti defeated after his 3rd phase. Feels almost like you absolutely must buy at least 1 premium character to get through the highest levels with him…

  12. Wonderful to hear both of your Christmas experiences; I hope you both had equally magical experiences today.

    Although I fancy myself a Buddhist, my experience of Christmas has always been much like Alissa’s. It has always been full of holiday traditions near & dear to the hearts of those I love & myself as well. This year proved to be equally so.

    Best wishes to you both, all of the addicts family & our friends at Tinyco who lived up to their promise to put out an event update on Christmas Day & even provided us with an stocking full of festive gifts.

  13. I am not entirely sure this is the proper place to ask this but here goes. You guys seem to be able to get ahold of tinyco when us little people cant. I just finished Santa’s wish list, however; I did NOT get Santa as it stated. I did however get a whopping 100,000 (yes one hundred thousand) Christmas cookies and like 25 clams. Is that supposed to happen? I really don’t see why they would be that generous with those since they were not nearly as generous with the Halloween fright bottles. I do not want to be accused to abusing the game if it is a glitch. So I was hoping maybe you could get an answer from them. I have NEVER been able to get a response from them regarding any issue I have ever had.

  21. Merry christmas everyone! I am going to share my funny christmas moment of the year. Yesterday I brought a gift bag home from work that said ho ho ho all over it and my 5 year old saw it and started reading it. This is what he said, ” ho ho ho ho ho, man thats a lot of ho’s, theres ho’s all over this bag!” My husband and I started laughing and when he asked us what was funny I told him that ho also means something else and that he would find out when he’ older. Sinse I wouldnt tell him what the other meaning was, he came to the conclusion that it was something scary and said “well im glad there aren’t a bunch of real ho’s on that bag because that would be scary!” Maybe you had to be there but I laughed my a** off hearing a 5 year old go on about all those ho’s.

  38. Merry Christmas! That was a very nice surprise to wake up to. Between all the bonuses, I’m already back up to 180 clams after going down to nearly zero to get John. I think this is a good amount of premium currency to give out, so while freemium players can’t get everything (we really shouldn’t be able to get everything without spending money), it doesn’t feel like there’s a paywall separating us from the fun.

    I just hope 6 days will be enough to finish the last phase of the event. I’ve got about 7K christmas cookies and plenty of materials ready…
