My nephew is SO cute, I had to lead with his picture today.
I had 2 of the boys outside with me yesterday, and the next thing I knew…Ashton was eating dirt.
I snapped one picture before cleaning him up…I had too!
It was been a bit of a whirlwind since I arrived in MI.
I love family time, but it’s a huge change from our quiet condo in Trinidad.
We have had lots of laughs, food, fun and only a smattering of some minor disagreements.
But, what would a family get together be without a few of those, right?
Wednesday night, the Melke crew headed out for some drinks, pull tabs and karaoke.
My mom decided we need to sing karaoke, us Melke’s love our karaoke.
Oh yea…we sang.
Have I ever mentioned that I can’t sing a lick?
I blame it on years of cheerleading…
American Pie – one of our favorite family songs.
My dad took pictures- basically, he wussed out.
We had a blast!
We won over 140 bucks on pull tabs (it’s a lotto game).
That was enough to pay each of us back and pay the bar tab with tip.
That’s good enough for me!
Before we ate turkey yesterday…
We watched the Texans beat the Lions in a nail bitting football game.
I had decided to root for my Texans…my dad wasn’t too happy when they won.
Good thing it was time for dinner at that moment!
The food was amazing and it was a true team effort!
BEST GRAVY EVER thanks to Tony’s Mom, Kathy!
watch for this recipe coming soon – it was delicious
Gobble, Gobble Everyone
Tomorrow we celebrate Christmas.
The fun never stops in this family.
