Rerun...HAPPY THAKSGIVING!...

I would be sad if I didn't write down the story behind this sweet Turkey Family that Ashlie did for show and tell in her class.  It wasn't an assignment or anything, I had just showed her in church one week how she could make a turkey with her handprint, and when we came home from church, she wanted to do a turkey for everyone in our family and bring it to school to show her class.  No problem right?  Well, she got the idea right during naptime--so the younger kids were awake, but dad was sleeping on the couch, and Emie and Erin were up in their rooms sleeping.  I happened to be up on the computer doing some things for the store, so I told her I would help her.  We traced our hands, and Jack's, Josh's and Abby's.  Now all we needed to do was wake up the sleepyheads, and trace their hands real quick.  Dad obliged and let Ashlie trace his hand real quick.  Then she headed upstairs to rouse the teenagers from their Sunday slumber.  She knocked and knocked on Emie's door--but no one would answer.  Then she tried Erin.  She knocked and knocked, and yelled into her door, "Erin--I need to trace your hand--I'm making something."  For awhile Erin wouldn't answer either, but then you hear her yell, "GET OUT OF HERE!"  Then from the computer room, I hear Todd getting up from the couch and stomp over to the foot of the stairs down from Emie and Erin's room.  "ERIN--YOU BETTER OPEN UP THAT DOOR RIGHT THIS MINUTE OR YOUR DEAD!  DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY STUPID PROJECTS WE HAVE HELPED YOU WITH--AND YOU CAN'T EVEN OPEN UP YOUR DOOR AND HELP ASHLIE FOR ONE MINUTE AND LET HER TRACE YOUR STUPID STINKIN HAND???  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  OPEN UP YOUR FRICKIN DOOR!"  Wouldn't you know it--her door opened right up, and amazingly, Emie heard the conversation and opened up her door before the wrath of Todd was unleashed her way!  Ashlie was happy to have everyone's turkey, and that Turkey Family will be a treasure for years to come!  Good Job Ash!
