A Funny Thanksgiving

We had the CFO's family came for Thanksgiving. Everyone had a great time... We had 16 "adults" (some of us are still young at heart and some are just young) 2 year old triplets, almost 3 year old twins, a 6 year old and four dogs. It was controlled chaos:)

Some funny times were had by all.....

Relative#1 - The roads were so curvy on our trip to the mountains it took us an hour to go 21 miles.
Relative#2 - How fast were you driving?
Relative#1 - Guess.... 21 MPH:)

Relative#3 - Your dishwasher is leaking.
Me - (After getting on the floor to inspect) It's not water:( (a.k.a. the movie Vacation)

Mother in Law - Why does William's face smell and taste funny? (after giving him a kiss)
CFO - (in another room) Who has been playing with Daddy's deodorant?

CFO - Who's poopie is that on the floor?

CFO - Didn't someone run over your dog, Frisbee years ago?
Relative#4 - Smart@$$ (the person she asked was the one that ran over the dog)
Sorry for the language but it was a direct quote and I felt that changing it to something cleaner like "smarty pants" took most of the humor out of it. Also, I am not sure why I felt the need to type the word using symbols for the last three letters. It still looks like and reads like the word but somehow it makes me feel better. I guess it is like when we say "bless your heart" right after something bad about someone.

The names have been changed to protect the guilty:)
