home alone....



son Eric, Kristen, son Tim, daughter Liz
and dear old me!



Thanksgiving was wonderful...every year more of my stepchildren get a clue into reality and realize that they have 2 parents or in the case of my married stepson 3. I try not to be a total jerk, but this kid/man/adult has never been to our house for a Thanksgiving meal. His mother yes, well sorta ... it's always her parents, who live around the corner from them, we live 5 minutes from them. Guess the pay back will come when their future son disses them for some hot girl's perfect family... oh speaking of that, youngest stepson did just that. And middle stepson is the king of avoidance he worked and skipped everyone.

BUT mine where all here along with 2 of my husband's boys, youngest stepson showed after we were done eating then left hot/rich/going back to school in Texas new girlfiend was calling. He went to his mother's, then dumped her for a party with 'the boys'. He has priorities!

It was a normal celebration...full of sarcastic banter. Liz's boyfriend was here, along with my son's wife to be. One thing Mark and I lucked out on was our kids all get along...better with age. Everyone is welcome at our table.

The grandkids were with their mother, and later the stepson's mom, they spent last night there, but not Dayton he came to visit this morning for some Grandparent spoiling.


Don't let the cute face fool you, he's a stinker....

And I did have pie for breakfast...apple's fruit right???

Way to go pie for breakfast. Rose you look as young as your kids. We have all that mix-up too with different parents here and different parents there. We never know who is going to be where.

These days, I think all of that "family blending and mixing" is just so normal. I'm just glad you had a great time. And I had CRUMBCAKE for breakfast! You did much better than I....at least you had FRUIT!!! (LOL)

I always remember the Bill Cosby routine about giving kids cake for breakfast: Flour, eggs, milk, etc.

It's breakfast food, right?

Dayton is a doll. These people have to be crazy to NOT want to be with you on T Day. You are wonderful.

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving, even with all the craziness of the blended family. Did you see what I ate today? LOL!!
