We are family
I got all my sisters (and parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, cousins, and faux cousins) with me
We are family
Get up ev'rybody and sing.
Ev'ryone can see we're together
As we walk on by
and we fly just like birds of a feather
I won't tell no lie
all of the people around us they say
Can they be that close
Just let me state for the record
We're giving love in a family dose

This song was brought to you by the letter T and the color orange (the terror alert level which the government is trying to color us with but which my own Muppet-themed system refuses to acknowledge - still no sign of Ernie).

Great weekend with the fam which has been expanded to include the Scrabble Champion and the soon-to-be Birthday Girl. After an hour and a half delay at the airport, we arrived at the homestead to the open arms, open hearts, and open mouths of the welcoming committee. TP got a heaping helping of "love in a family dose" throughout the weekend as wedding plans were discussed, mass quantities of food were devoured, and moments of calm and silence were as scarce as hen's teeth. Late nights (in high heels!), early mornings (in cups of tea!), and days filled with love, affection, overeating, and undersleeping. An ocean of thanks to my family for a wonderful time. And for those of you who missed out, here you go, eat up, you are looking too weak . . .
