There was HOT!!! HOT I tell you!!!!

Thanksgiving day found us all a bit Punchy from Molly’s thirtieth birthday bash the night before. Our suburban rambler was positively bursting with activity. Much food, champagne and wine were consumed as we celebrated the beginning of Molly’s 30’s. There was a slide show. There was singing. As things got seedier, our life-sized singing Santa was molested by girls not yet old enough to drive. There were photographs taken. With lemons.

The debauchery of the previous night left us tired and giggly on Thanksgiving.

We somehow assimilated the news of the Nick and Jessica break up into our emotional mind frames, took a few moments to re-balance, and got on with the eating. Oh. The eating. It was lovely.

The fourteen guests were seated around the table at my parents house when someone asked my fluent-in-Spanish seventh and eighth grade nieces (and santa molesters) how to say “Thanksgiving” in Spanish. My sister Molly responded with a hearty “Muchas Gracias!”

We indulged in vast quantities of food and general silliness and slap-happiness. It was a lovely event all together. Madge vocalized her new obsession by excitedly pointing from her highchair to the candle on the table and exclaiming “HOT!” forty seven or fifty times throughout the meal. I suspect her internal dialogue went something like this:

“OHMIGOD!! OHMIGOD!! IT’S HOT!!! HOT!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?? RIGHT ON THE TABLE! THERE IS HOT RIGHT ON THE TABLE! DO YOU SEE IT? HOT! IT’S HOT! RIGHT THERE!! RIGHT THERE!!! I WANT TO TOUCH IT BUT I CAN’T! I CAN ONLY POINT TO IT BECAUSE IT’S HOT!!! RIGHT THERE!!! HOT!!!!!!! THERE IS HOT!! RIGHT THERE ON THE TABLE THERE IS HOT I TELL YOU!!! HOT!!!”

And the icing on the cake: Ernie, the family shelte has finally recovered from his mange / allergies / radiation sickness that left him half bald. Mercifully, Ernie has dog fur covering his nether region once again. He is no longer exposing us all to his bare dog balls. Bare dog balls are just plain gross. Even more so when said bald dog balls are flopped over and swinging back and forth as the mange afflicted dog lifts his leg to his ear and scratch-scratch-scratches yet another bald irritated patch of skin.

sounds like you had some thanksgiving! santa's molested, a molly turning 30 (complete with slide show!), food more food and some champagne and wine, fluent spanish-speaking eighth graders translating thanksgiving (do they give spanish lessons, by the way? I feel like the minority lately here in my neighborhood...), and an adorable Madge bringing to everyone's attention the "hot"ness of a candle!

...oh, and poor ernie!

Great Thanksgiving posting and wonderfully horrible image of a bare dog's danglies...nothing worse unless it's any dog exposing that crayon-red embarrassment and your kid trying to grab it (happened with mine when she was about Madge's age and we were at ancient aunt and uncle's house).

I'm glad that finding out about Jessica and Nick's breakup didn't ruin your appetite. I know that watching celebrities break up can be both painful and devastating. Who can forget the tears we shed when Jennifer and Brad called it quits? I am wiping away a tear right now.

You are quite a woman.

I think Shelties are adorable. Were his balls bald bald bald like a ping pong ball?

Sounds like two wonderful parties. I wish I was a sister in your family!
