and all things fattening
This has been a week of family celebrations here in Texas. If getting cornered to look at family photos nauseates you, then this post won't be your cup of tea or glass of tequila. It started with the graduation of my granddaughter who's Miss All That With a Cherry on Top.
I know you're thinking, Gosh Grandma J sure is short and fat, but really? my granddaughter is extremely tall. Don't be fooled by her looks...she graduated from Middle School, and will be entering the ninth grade in the Fall.
Here's another picture of Miss Graduate with her brother, who's also the Birthday Boy. I don't think he's pinching her because I can see both his hands. Could it be she has
Then we grab some poor soul who's trying to take their own pictures, to take a family photo of all five of us. Besides the Graduate and Birthday Boy we have Grandma J, her Middle Daughter and her handsome husband, Master Sergeant John...who has served two deployments to Iraq. Those deployments were sandwiched with two deployments to Korea. Don't tell anyone, but I heart John. John is also Tabatha's big brother.
The Birthday Boy turned 12! He is on a traveling baseball team, when he's not on his traveling basketball or football teams. Because of all his sports obligations, the party with all the boogie woogie...get down stuff was "on the road".
Imagine if you will, about fifteen families staying at Motel 6 partying. Does anyone wonder why Grandma J likes hanging with JJ on weekends?
If you think the partying is over, think again. I won't let celebrations like these go without a trip to our favorite restaurant. Well, it's really the Birthday Boy's favorite, and that's all Grandma J needs to know.
Then we had some of this.....
Topped off with four crazies digging their spoons into this.
