We all had a great time today, and it was fantastic to see my "niece-in-law" Jen! She totally cracks me up, and we always have a great time together. I also have a new great-nephew, Jordan Sterling, born last night. Needless to say, he couldn't make the scene, but I'm guessing he'll be there next year! It was great to visit with everyone, and there was, as always, plenty of food! (My Li'l Deviled Eggs were eaten up pronto...nom nom nom. Guess they were good enough!) Oddly enough, I didn't have any turkey. Just a couple of pieces of ham. I seem to be eating less meat in general lately, and there were plenty of other things to eat! It was all good, but I know when to stop eating, especially if I want to leave room for...pumpkin pie!
That's right, I got my piece of pie today, and when I asked my sister Diana "Do you have whipped cream?" and she said "Yes!" I was a very happy girl! For whatever reason, I've been craving pumpkin pie lately, and I got my fix today. It was delicious! As you can see, I got into the spirit of things, as did my brother-in-law. Thanks for giving me devil horns, Tom. Like I needed the help. Whoops, got a little on my nose!
We had a blast playing Rock Band! Early on, some of us were playing with my great-nephew Jared and my great-niece Maddie...she does great on the drums, and it was so cute watching her. She was totally getting into it, bopping up and down! Jared does great on guitar and he also sang a bit, too. Guess they didn't mind playing with us geezers, and do you know why? Because we rock, that's why!
I suppose that I should also mention that at the tender age of ten, Jared is taller than I am. Of course, that's not hard to do. Argh.
People eventually left, and it was down to us, my sister and her husband, and Jen. We kept playing, had a lot of fun, and dang, I'm tired! As I was leaving, we got a picture of Jen, Diana, and me. Jen and I were flashing peace signs, and Diana was doing the rock devil horns. She couldn't quite decide where to go with that, and we got a four-finger wave. What the hell, Di? What is that supposed to be? She corrected it quickly, and here is wishing you all and everyone around the world...peace. As Elvis Costello said, what's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding? Seems like a great idea to me. Peace, beeyotches!
