If you send out one or those old-fashioned, year in review Christmas newsletters, now you've got to compete with this.

"Dancing in the front yard night and day and neighbors walk by this is what they say "Are they Christmas jammies?" They are Christmas jammies. 

The family's year summed up to the beat of Will Smith's song "Miami" while dressed...

"In my Christmas jammies." 

And the dad doing most of the jamming is none other than Raleigh, North Carolina anchor man Penn Holderness, rapping his daughter's achievements.

"She can count to 100 in Chinese. She can now read books about as thick as these."

Not to be outdone, Penn's almost 4 year old son.

"And in case you didn't see you should cause vital, he dressed up as a chief and shook his hips at a recital."

And then there's mom Kim, who got a bit part as a reporter this year in Iron Man 3.

Towards the end of the video we find out that the WNCN anchorman will soon be weighing anchor.

"Next month he's stepping off the anchor desk.  Its' the biggest decision of his life. He's gonna quit his job and come work with his wife." 

Doing what? Making videos of course at their own video production and marketing company. You know newspeople. They're always broadcasting secrets.

"There's room for child #3 but i can't i just had a vasectomy." 

"And it's hard to find something that rhymes with vasectomy really."

Penn even did the vasectomy with flair. He and 3 friends went together to do the deed. They call themselves the Vas Pack. Those are soothing packs of frozen peas on their laps. Dad wasn't doing press about his Christmas jammies since he's still an anchorman and even his son tried to shut down our interview.

But before signing off, mom expressed regret about their jammies.

"I'm really wishing I had chosen something without horizontal stripes on the backside."

There are always vertical stripes for next year.

The thing is they bought the jammies on line. And since then most of the family has expanded.

"My jammies fit me just right but my daddy's jammies are a little tight."

Tight? We think your dad's pretty loose.
