Thanksgiving memories 2009

The food was excellent.  The football games were exciting for the most part.  Spending time with my crazy family is always…interesting.

Especially my 93-year-old grandmother. 

Me:  “Hi Mimi!  You look so pretty in purple!”

Mimi:  “Thank you honey.  You look good too.  Have you lost weight?”

Me:  “I have!  Thanks for noticing!”

Mimi:  “I thought so.  You looked a little porky at the re-enactment a few months ago.”

Needless to say, I skipped the lemon icebox pie for dessert.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

Honesty is highly overrated.

Your Mimi sounds like my Grandma did. Question 1: “Kayren (she always pronounced it that way) have you lost weight honey?” Question 2: “Are you dating anyone Kayren?”

Every single solitary time I saw her. LOL!

Were you at dinner with MY family?!?! I swear those same words came out of MY 86 year-old, purple wearing Mimi’s mouth on Thursday… except I don’t think she said porky, she prefers chunky. But, if I were you, I’d have eaten that pie AND a scoop of blue bell!

That sounds like my grandma, she’s always quick to point out if someone has gotten a little “husky”
