Our Family is going Viral… Literally

Our Family is going Viral... Literally

Very bizarre waking up to 14 voicemails telling us our Xmas Jammies video was on GMA. Fox and Friends also just called. The problem – we are literally going viral. Kim picked got a stomach virus yesterday, and Lola just picked it up. Oh, and I really did just have a vasectomy, so we are a hot mess right now. I will say it is making us all feel better hearing all of the kind words, especially from so many old friends we haven’t heard from in ages. If Xmas jammies gets any more national play we’ll let you know.

  • Keith

    Just wanted to say I enjoyed your video. It was fun. Great humor and great looking family. Can’t wait till next year.

  • Peggy Harris

    Kiss them for me. I’m so sorry they’re sick. Tell them Grammy would make them chicken soup if she lived closer.

  • Koen Gommers

    Any more national play? It’s all over the place here in Europe! Get well soon, Merry XMas from The Netherlands.

  • Brittany W.

    I just love that you guys are a REAL normal family! There is never a good time to catch a stomach bug, but seriously, when you hit national headlines…. not sure that could be topped! (plus the vasectomy) This sounds like something that happens to our family!!! (not kidding either, we have a very similar story, except the making national headlines and becoming famous and all lol) Seriously hope everyone is feeling better!

Merry Christmas to you and your family as well..BTW not too many Christmas Jammies that I like, but would wear yours…lol

    I hope your family has recovered from their viral episode. In case they have not, accept this heart-warming holiday story and my best wishes for a happy and healthy Christmas. Sincerely, Kathryn Cunningham

    ’Twas the Stomach Flu Before Christmas

    Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

    Every creature was puking, yes, even a mouse.

    The stockings we’d hung by the chimney with care,

    We used now to wipe all the sweat from our hair.


    The children leaned over the sides of their beds,

    While hot dogs and sugar-plums gushed from their heads.
    
And mamma with her ‘kerchief, and I with my cap,
    
Had just wiped our mouths and were trying to nap.
    

When out in the street there arose such a clatter,

    I sprang from the bed and slipped right in the splatter.
    
I crawled to the window, head bruised from a gash,
    
Tore open the curtains and threw up with a splash.
    

My vomit upon all the new-fallen snow
    
Looked just like a painting by artist Van Gogh.
    
When, what to my feverish eyes should appear,
    
But an old fashioned sleigh and eight flying reindeer.


    And though I was feeling so dreadfully sick,
    
I knew through the nausea it must be St Nick.

    With twisting and loop de loops, nearer they came,
    
It made me all woozy- I retched, feeling lame!


    And then- oh, the pounding!- I heard on the roof

    The thumping and banging of each noisy hoof.

    As I drew in my head, vision spinning around,

    Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.
    He took one look around, and he called for his elf,
    
And he gagged when he smelled me, in spite of himself!

    A wink of his eye and the elves zoomed ahead,
    
They mopped up the mess and they made every bed.
    

They kissed all the kids, and when done with their work,

    Our stomachs stopped churning, the room ceased to jerk.
    
Our home smelled as sweet as a newly picked rose!

    St. Nick breathed a sigh, and uncovered his nose.


    He sprang to his sleigh, to his elves gave a whistle,
    
And away they all flew, they shot off like a missile.
    
But before he was gone, I called out with my might,
    
”Happy Christmas to all, now we’ll have a good-night!”

    Wow, Great Job, I love #XmasJammies. It must be great to have a family that interacts like that, as a 41 year old black man it made me cry. I can only dream and wonder what it would be like to be in a family like that. I pray for your success in your business ventures, and if you ever need a fill in even if it is a tiny, very small role, I’d love to be a part of the excitement, and I can Rap also. Your family rocks, is cool, all that and a bag of chips, etc, etc. All I want for Christmas is Christmas Jammies!

    The first few seconds of Xmas Jammies I thought “Oh dear oh dear oh dear”. Then three more seconds elapsed and I was hooked.

    This video was so awesome, in many respects. Anyone could tell you all had so much fun making it. And your children..WOW..they are so adorable.. Lola’s giggle after she sang her part, was the cutest giggle I have ever heard. Reminded me so much of my daughter when she was that age. Thank you for making mine, and many others day with your video. This is one video that truly is unforgettable.

  • Dori Mueller

    its going through Facebook like wildfire – so my question – where did you get the christmas jammies, you should market those… i’m assuming you guys ironed on the names, or were they customized somewhere must know!

  • Dori Mueller

    The family should totally sing it WITH Jimmy Fallon…

    Hello Penn, We loved your video. It was so Fab. Esp as we live in France, but I am originally from Raleigh NC! So fun to watch! As I watched it, I wondered if you would be up for a challenge to assist the Syrian Refugees in Lebanon. There are about 1 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon (country population 4 million), most of them children. They are living in temporary tents, not even considered permanent refugee camps by the Lebanese Government. These children are living without winter clothing or proper shoes, although there is snow on the ground, and it is one of the worst winters in the country. No proper sanitation, and no proper nutrition.I have 2 children who would love to make a difference- 16 and 12 years old. They are willing to do what ever they can to make a difference, along wih their school mates. My boys’ father is Lebanese, which makes this a cause close to their own hearts. A cool video such as the one you did would go far to raise money for these poor refugees. We have talent at my boys’ school- they could make a great contribution with singing and anything else needed. Any interest to assist in such a good cause? We would love your help!!! Best, Mary Ward

    A big ‘ol “HOWDY!” here from big ‘ol TEXAS!!!

    OMG! SOOOO GREAT! I am so a FAN! Like, a SUPER FAN! For REAL!!! I have watched your “viral” video over and over again and just can’t stop laughing! I’ve posted it on my FB and told everyone I can about it! I’ve had an ENORMOUS amount of tragedy as of late (and I know I am not the only one) but I so NEEDED to laugh too. And it wasn’t just any laugh my friends…it was one heck of a knee slapper that shook my entire house! Ah, so great.

    So, I wish each one of u a safe and happy holiday! I am so looking forward to everything else u come up with and good wishes and good luck in your new endeavors. Something tells me u aren’t gonna need any extra luck though. Keep on keepin’ on! And thank u to ur entire family for the endless laughs heard in unison around the world! God bless y’all! 🙂

    ~ April Dawn Butler

    I loved your 2013 Christmas Jammies video and watched it…uh, let’s just say, more than once. ‘Christmas Jammies’ was my buzz word this holiday with all the family and guests. My 4 y/o grandson plays Wii games, and asks me to help him read all the ‘onscreen bubbles’ of instructions. I would read “Press A to help Mario climb the wall….in his CHRISTMAS JAMMIES”, like that. LOL He laughed at first, then the 4 year old got annoyed by the childishness of his 55 y/o grandma! SCORE! Sending your family best wishes for a wonderful 2013, in your CJs.

    My kids and I have been sing your song all Christmas!! I’m sure we will be singing it every year, in our Christmas Jammie’s!! Xx

    My 2 year old will sit with an iPad and watch Xmas Jammie’s on a loop, she loves it! I think she has a wee crush on Penn Charles lol. She has recently discovered she can project it onto the smart tv with a press of a button, safe to say it’s rarely out of my head lol! Miss two, I’m almost certain, would be one of your biggest fans 🙂
