Live Blogging Thanksgiving

***This post may contain affiliate links. See my "Disclaimer" link for additional details.***

How do you get your Loyal Readers to tune in to your blog on Thanksgiving Day?

Why, an event, of course!

For years, my Facebook friends have been urging me to write a book about the funny and cool things my kids say. 


In high school newspaper class, we kept all such sayings anonymous and called them "Overheards."


kid, cute kid, It Wasn't Me t-shirt, It Wasn't Me Shirt



For Thanksgiving, I'll be live blogging some of the best overheads my family (and extended family) can muster. 

My side of the family is from near Cajun country and my mother-in-law is from, well, Country country, so this should be a blast. (Hint: if it involves britches, I probably didn't say it.)

I should warn them...bwa ha ha...but this way is better. I'll get to find out who really reads my blog, when I quote them (anonymously, of course)!

I'm off to get some early Black Friday shopping done (on-line, obviously), but will keep updating this post throughout Thanksgiving Day as funny things come flying out of unsuspecting mouths!

So bookmark this link and keep refreshing for updates! The fun starts soon now.

The Yoda comment is probably one of the best compliments a person could ever receive. Yoda lived to be forever, just about, and he was a crazy smart little dude (though he played with riddle-y language a bit too much). If I get to the point where I'm super old (no offense to said lady) and someone says in anyway that I'm like Yoda, I'd tell all my friends xD

Yoda would be proud! LOL

My son got a bicycle on his 7th birthday. His 93-year-old grandfather took it for a spin around the yard, and my son's eyes grew as large as dinner plates. When Grandpa returned the bike to him, he asked my son if he thought old men should ride bicycles. My son, in his excitement, shouted, "Grandpa! You're not old until you're AT LEAST 105!"

I was grocery shopping with my Young son and he was walking ahead of me passing by a older man. When he stated really loud, eeewwww I think someone crapped their pants mom!
The older gent just kept walking.
