Wham! Some Thanksgiving Cheer



Five Crows, at my brother's beautiful home. My, that's a nifty scarf you're wearing, Mrs. Crow. "Why, thank you. I learned 'to tie one on' on the Internet--wink, wink."

Three Crows who can't be serious, so these are the best shots. (No tonsils or whites of eyes = success.)
















Two Batts and one Crow.









One former baby Batt girl re-creating how, when she was very little, she used to bust up her mom and dad whenever they would hug or kiss.




One Cheer Meister in a one-of-a-kind official "Cheer Meister" hat.

















One Cheer Meister in a "Wham" Wake Me Up Before You Go Go shirt from the 1985 video. Also, doing a pretty good Bono imitation.

One Cheer Meister doing the official Cheer Meister dance.

Thanksgiving 2008. A good time was had by all. Especially the Cheer Meister.

Looks like fun, fun, fun! Loved the sibling pics. I can never get a perfect pic when I put my three together either. And it's usually the brother who's the instigator of all weird facial expressions. LOL.

I didn't realize your mother was so tall. She's a gorgeous lady!

Oh, and I'm loving your shirt and I want one in green or blue!

Yea - great scarf! But do you cook dinner wearing it? You must be good! White kitchen, perfectly clean counters, recipe meme. . . do you have a cooking show coming?
Your mom looks like the life of the party . . . I like her!

Great post... when my husband and I hug, my youngest wedges his way in between us and says, "Cut that up" (instead of cut that out). We laughed so hard the first time he said it, it is now a running joke.

Great family photos and the cheermeister is SO funny!

fransmomma said...

this has nothing to do with your post, however i am a fan of the cheer meister. i was looking at your profile and noticed Waiting for Guffman...are you kidding me?!?!? that's one of my favorite movies and no one appreciates it quite like i do. i'm so glad to know there's someone else out there that has not only heard of it, but lists it as one of their favs. :) that might have just made my day. i think i'll watch it tonight.

Debbie said...
