THE SOUNDS OF AN OOMPA LOOMAP THANKSGIVING

* Hey, Becca is giving a dead turkey a massage! (Rocky watching her older sister preparing the bird)

* I'm peeling the biggest potatoes so I can have a LOT of mashed potatoes!  (Art during spud duty)

* I guess it tastes okay, if you like the taste of that stuff the dentist puts in your mouth. (Rocky, upon taste testing her cranberry salad)

* Son of a dookie! (Dorn when she knocked the pot of burnt giblets onto the floor)

* Quarter! (Rocky, upon hearing Dorn after she dumped the giblets onto the floor)

* Watch over our son and brother, and all of our troops in harms way, and bring them home safe.  (Steve during grace.  A place was set at the table for Gabe although he was thousands of miles away).

* The turkey is the best part of the meal, and yet I'm eatting everything but turkey!  (Becca, trying to decide her favorite dish).

* You're like this bottle, everything above the neck is just air! (Art teasing Becca about her dark-blondness).

* I'm exploring why God made my mouth so big!  (Zack after being scolded for stuffing a huge amount of turkey into his mouth).

* WOO HOO!  (Dorn and Dickidoo after Broncos kick winning field goal during overtime against Dallas Cowboys).

Glad your team won, my dear, though I confess that I don't know a bronco from a flying pig:)
Your spilt giblets reminded me of how in my haste to satiate the starving souls around me waiting anxiously for the thermometer to pop out of the buttered balled turkey's humongous breast..(Hmmm is that an oxymoron?) grabbed the red hot candied sweet potato casserole from the oven in haste, dropped it unceremoniously on my soft heart of pine floors and watched in horror as the skin came off my hand and the candied sweets slid across the floor as gracefully as the ice skater's at Rockefeller Plaza in New York.
Yeah... It was fun not to cook this year!

That was a good game as opposed to the sleepfest that was the Arizona/Detroit game.  I hope Jeff Garcia had a nice Thanksgiving dinner poor man.

The best thing about the holidays besides the sports and food, the memories of flying giblets and family.

Sounds like a lot of fun mixed with some sadness for your child who is away.

Hi Dorn, It sounds like you had a fun and interesting Thanksgiving, inspite of your son being away.  I love the comments!  Sounds alot like my family, I am always comparing us to The Griswalds from National Lampoon's Vacation.  

I really enjoy reading your journal!

Prayers said here for Gabe and other soldiers... and we were also happy as we are Giant fans and hate the Cowboys!  Yay!

Be well,
Dawn
