Thanksgiving to be remembered

I was so excited Mama Kat had a writers workshop today cause I needed some inspiration! Here it is:

A Thanksgiving to be remembered...
Last year was a Thanksgiving to be remembered! I was a substitute teacher at the time so I got the week off and was able to go home to be with my family. My parents and I, my two cousins and their husbands all gathered at my aunt and uncle’s house.

One of my cousins was pregnant! We were all so excited. We looked at pictures of the sonogram. Talked about what his name was going to be. Took pictures with her and the belly. Felt him kick.

Then, as tradition states we must do, we went around the table saying what we were thankful for. I can’t remember if anyone went before me but I started us down the memorable part. I said, “I am thankful for Conner”. I was being serious! I was so excited for him to arrive! A couple people said some stuff I don’t remember now. Then my cousin that was pregnant said, “I am thankful for my husband’s sperm”. I think she was trying to go along the same line as me and was kind of being silly. But she usually says stuff like this. I’ve got another one coming in a little bit. Now I have to give you a little back story. One of my cousins’ husbands works for my uncle. I think after my cousin said she was thankful for her husband’s sperm he might have said something about his sperm too. We were all having a great laugh. Then, it was my uncle’s turn. He started to say, “I am thankful for my son-in-law…” I started dying laughing because I thought he was going to say sperm! But he was going to say something about his son-in-law that works for him!

Anyways, my family is so funny. We always have pee in your pants funny moments when we are together. Seriously, we have them written in some scrapbooks.

Oh wait, you wanted to hear the other funny comment! Now this was a comment my cousin made earlier when she found out she was having a boy. But the story was told again that Thanksgiving night. She was thinking about how strange it was to be having a boy and she said, “I have a penis inside me!” Of course my hilarious aunt said, “Well isn’t that how you got in this situation in the first place?”
Did you like my story? Sorry if my Thanksgiving story didn’t quite warm your heart. It warms mine!


  1. Oh my gosh I can only imagine how a family member would be received after stating she has a penis inside her! That's hysterical, you guys sound like you have a lot of fun together!!
