We had plenty of turkey for Thanksgiving, and not ALL of it went "gobble gobble!!!"
Check it out:
Jason, our "Little Cheese" S-I-L and Joe, our ornery B-I-L showed up wearing the EXACT same sweater. Who called whom to coordinate the "outfits" guys???
You earn the First gobble!!
Brother-in-law-in-law (that is NOT a typo) Jeff.
Oh PUH-LEASE do NOT feel sorry for him that I posted THIS photo. He has RICHLY deserved it. Richly.
We first met at MY SISTER's wedding - - - you know- - - the one where she married his BROTHER. He was best man, I matron of honor. He still had hair - - - LOTS of it.
It was a love-hate relationship at first sight. Love-hate.
I do NOT remember what we were discussing in this photo, I only remember that I was RIGHT!!!
Never mind that we are totally eclipsing the bride and groom - - -
Oh, and all you retro lovers, this was circa 1976 - - - December 31, 1976 to take all the circa out of it.
Let's take another look at those two faces, side by side. Quite a picture we make, huh? Can't you just see all the love-hate goin' on???
We still have the love-hate relationship - - - makes life more interesting.
We get the SECOND gobble.
Who's this??? Peyton Manning or G. Kelly Broyles????
Doesn't he clean up well? He looks so dignified and mature in this picture.
Looks are deceiving - - - this was just before he OPENED that pantry door and began removing the labels from the cans, and that was just before he followed me around the kitchen "crookeding" all the stools and chairs I was straightening.
Oh the stories I could tell about this boy and his antics - - - but I don't really need to because:
His sister and B-I-L created a CLONE of him, whom they named Mackinley, and I'll just tell HIS stories AS THEY HAPPEN!
Just LOOK at these two - - - they get the THIRD gobble.
GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE
Take a look at this precious little turkette! She's got her snuggy blankie and is already clutching a bottle of my fingernail polish.
Check out her boots:
Aren't those the sweetest, cutest, daintiest little feet you've ever seen?
She gets the FOURTH gobble - - - the fashion gobble.
GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE
Indiana Jones Mackinley James Baker. Look at this kid!!! He wore this hat and backpack, which contains his train track, nearly all afternoon!!!
If he doesn't make you smile, your lips are BROKEN!!!
Macky James, I LOVE you and YOU get the FIFTH gobble!!!
