My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Thanksgiving Thesaurus Thursday

Well, hello and welcome back from the dinner table! If you're anything like me you're stuffed full of stuffed bird and having a hard time keeping your eyes open while waiting on the dishwasher to finish so you can get that last load in it and go to bed! :-)

If you're not like me you're watching the Dallas Cowboys STOMP ON the New York Jets. ** :-) **

ummm 34-3 if you're interested.

Next they take on the Green Bay Packers...and frankly they just have to win this one or Mohawk Chieftan will NEVER let me live it down!!!!!

I have had a very nice week "off" and I must say a huge thank you to all the sailors who put up their stories so we'd have something to read. Seeing as how I've spent the entire week in the bathroom waiting on pee or poop these stories were quite timely. The Chief promises one from the Marine point of view tomorrow so I can't wait to read that!

Subvet has proven once again that he is a stinking good cook! Our bird and trimmings were perfect. We celebrated Sonshine's 4th birthday today while we had family gathered as Subvet will be working all DAY on Sunday. Highlights include Sonshine singing Happy Birthday to himself solo while Daddy was lighting the candles on the cake. Sonshine asking to blow the candles out AGAIN. Gator-boy going to town with the Grandmothers (both my and Subvet's mothers were here) batting the balloons around. If everything at youtube and blogger cooperate this time I will be posting a video of the boys playing with the balloons for Tiny Talk Tuesday so don't forget to stop by then.

Potty training is progressing, albeit not as quickly as I'd like. However, that's par for the course with a kid that has delays like Sonshine's. I keep thinking, if I can get these two boys out of diapers I can conquer the world!
Here's what happens when I send Sonshine to "Go pick out what underwear you want to wear today."

On the sewing front there's a stalemate. I just don't have the energy after running up and down the hall all day to sit at the sewing machine at night. So, **sigh** Thanksgiving has past and my gifts are not done. I'll be getting to them here in the next week though.

On to our game! I'm hoping it'll be more exciting than the Cowboys/NYJets game was. I HATE to watch landslides. I really do. I much prefer a really close game with a lot of turnovers that has you out of your seat screaming yourself hoarse for 3 hours.

Oh, by the way. I love football. It makes me sad that we had to even stop watching games because the commercials were just nastiness. And there was that "wardrobe malfunction".....

For those who are new here today, the "rules" of Thesaurus Thursday are as follows:

First and foremost, leave as many funny definitions for either word (or both) as you can think up in the comments!! The ones that make me laugh the hardest will be given the Silly Goose Award.

Next, if you know (or think you know) the true definitions without looking them up then be sure and leave those in the comments too!! All definitions that are correct (or close enough for government work and Mighty Mom) will win the Smarty Pants Award!

Awards will be given out in Saturday's post, so don't forget to come and see if you won!

Our words for this week are:



And, just for grins here's a couple of pictures from today.

Do not buy this toy!! It is obnoxious! (I looked it up, dear, highly objectionable or offensive.)

This, however was a lot of fun....

Here's Sonshine playing with it.

And here's Mom playing after Sonshine went to bed..

Did I mention I'm a Tomboy??

Night folks. Looking forward to reading some funny definitions tomorrow.

Football is the game of All-American homosexual tag. Think about it. The players wear padding that exaggerates their shoulder size and tight pants that leave nothing to the imagination. They constantly pat one another on the butt and engage in group hugs. It's a game that has "tight ends", "wide receivers" and just look at how cozy the quarterback gets with the center in order to get the ball!

For the record, I played offensive tackle in high school.

And as a native of New York I'll just admit that anyone who supports the Jets gets used to what a cellar looks like.

Good Morning MightyMom
I hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful day also. We all ate too much as usual. We have decided to have Christmas on Christmas Eve at our house this year with my parents and sister. We are all looking forward to that. We put our tree up yesterday evening. I'm going to post some pictures in a few days. Okay now, let's see about these here words: TOMALLEY - redneck word or tomorrow - usage: Billy said we will go to town tomalley.
TONETTE - redneck word for toenail - usage: Billy said when we get back from town tomalley, i need to clip this long tonette that is giving me problems. Okay, I have no clue what they really aree, but I gave it my best shot. LOL. Oh, I remember those things blocks where you would have the log cabin look. I love what you did in the picture. Well, take care my friend and have a great Friday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Sunday would have been my Dad's birthday - he would have been 73 had the residual effects of Agent Orange not given him cancer and taken him away from us way too soon.

On a less sobering note, for your Thesaurus Words this week -

Tomalley is the lead singer of the band the Tonettes!

Diane J. said...

At least Sonshine didn't put the drawers over Sugars' head, LOL! ;o) She looks kind of shell-shocked in that pic, looking at Sonshine, LOL!

Tomalley I know -- It's the liver in a cooked lobster. A delicacy to some, lobster guts to this ol' gal!

Tonette - Hmmm.....Toni Tenille's sister. It was almost the Captain and Tonette but Toni beat Tonette's time to get into the duo with the Captain.

(By the way, of what was he "The Captain" anyway???)
