My family doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving. But everybody was off work and the game was on, so big family reunion! Woot!
So in honor of Thanksgiving yesterday, some due thank-yous:
Thank you for whatever it was that tamed my relatives this year.
Thank you for alcohol which might have made it seem like they were tame.
Thank you for no hangover (I believe in the spirit of the holidays now!).
Thank you for everyone unanimously agreeing that ‘their’ team won.
Thank you for the storm that messed with the satellite connection ending the game short.
Thank you for no fist fights for the first half of the night.
Thank you for my paranoid Gramps who keeps an industrial first aid kit in his car.
Thank you for not letting anyone talk about Aunt J’s age.
Thank you for not letting Aunt J talk about her age.
Thank you for Aunt J’s new wardrobe.
Thank you for not letting anyone comment on said wardrobe within an earshot of Aunt J. It may be a little out there, but no buttcrack flashing is good in my book.
Thank you for not letting little S exclaim “Oh my god! The jello looks like boobs!”.
Thank you for giving mom the good sense to separate the two spherical white jello dishes topped with single cherries each.
Thank you for not letting the new ones in the family get Stinky the cousin and Joe the dog’s names mixed up. Much.
Thank you for Cousin M’s vomit being contained to the backyard.
Thank you for letting Joe the dog eat it up.
Thank you for nobody else witnessing that but me.
Thank you for all these people I call family.
Thank you for the day after Thanksgiving when everyone can go back home.
Hawahwhahhhhaaa sounds like you had a good one 🙂 Big Hugs xxooxxxx
Mollie and Alfie
It was! The boob jello was surprisingly good.
I wish we celebrated thanksgiving here in Norway! Sounds like a great time!
We don’t celebrate it here either. I love the descriptions of Thanksgiving food, always sound so good!
We celebrate other weird stuff.
I love weird stuff
Me2! Makes me feel normal:)
Haha! Right? It’d just be weird without the weird stuff.
Your family sounds amazingly fun! 🙂 Happy belated Thanksgiving!
My family will never leave you bored that’s for sure 🙂
Happy belated Thanksgiving, Lavinia!
Haha! Sounds like a good Thanksgiving, or family reunion day. Cheers!
It was fun. There’s always food to pretend to concentrate on during the awkward moments, so that’s good. 🙂
I know exactly what you mean. But I’m glad you had fun!
well hi there! Thanks for the pingback on ‘pass the effins’! I love your family reunion story! The funniest to me was when cousin M hurled in the backyard and Joe the dog ate it…..EW but so hilarious! haha! and the boob jello…yes! I shared this on twitter cuz it is right up my humor alley. 🙂
Hi! I loved your title pass the effins!
Thanks for sharing my post on twitter, made my day 😀
Thanks! Love me some effins!
And you’re so welcome! Your post was so funny, already got feedback via twitter from other who loved it too!
No way, that’s fantastic! Yay
Thank YOU, partner… for this, and for being you.
Partner, your comments always make my day 🙂
Gosh, we’re both grateful souls, aren’t we?
Hehe, guess we are. Must be the Thanksgiving spirit.
Sounds like one of my family reunions! Ewwww about the dog though. 😉
The dog simultaneously cracked up and almost made me sick, almost. Again, I’m glad I was the only one who saw that. 😀
OMG! We have the exact same relatives!
No way! Maybe we’re related!
whew it is. now peace and quiet.
Peace and quiet at last. Now Christmas…
For peace sakes, Christmas is abolished.
Boob jello!!! I want some!
There are boob jello leftovers, SS 🙂
Now how to get there…
Fill sorry for JOE!!! Glad you had a great time though and all went relatively well… lol
Oh yes, poor Joe. Although, the little weirdo didn’t mind. I love that dog. 🙂
Exactly! It’s great to see everyone and great to get back to your own house again. Sounds like it was a pretty good day there, overall.
It was pretty great overall. Never a dull moment there.
Too, too funny, MFE! Mine was so tame in comparison — we ate dinner in our PJ’s. Life is good! 🙂
I love having dinner in PJs! Or doing anything in PJs really. They’re soft and comfy, perfect for pretty much everything, right?
My favorite part of Thanksgiving is when everyone leaves too!
Right? Then you can have all the leftovers in peace!
And you don’t have to make up small talk anymore.
Thank YOU for your awesomeness!! 🙂
Oh Amy, YOU are awesome. Always! *hyper scrutinized awesomeness five*
Never been served boob jello. I feel incomplete now.
I didn’t know how incomplete my life was until I saw it 😉

Look at that, I’m on your blog as I read this
Cool! Now get to answering your adoring public!
Just curious, but why doesn’t your family celebrate Thanksgiving?
Indian family, we just don’t celebrate it is all 🙂
