I decided if I was going to point the finger for being gaudy, perhaps I should just keep it in the family.
As my various family members travel to meet together for the holidays each year, we’ve had a tradition of Christmas pasts. There’s always at least one prized gift up for grabs. It’s been everything from designer decorated gigantic granny-panties turned to thongs with fringe attached (oh, how I wish I could find that picture!) to…well, I’ll let you see for yourself. The prized possession always comes with a catch – you have to try it on for everyone if you’re going to get the booty (by that, I mean money) that goes with it. (Yeah, thinking back…probably not a good lesson to teach all our kids at an early age.)
Next, let’s get ready to travel to my son’s school, for “I ❤ America Day.” As you can see, he went with a modernized version of Urban Cowboy.
Obviously, the pine cone doesn’t fall far from the oak tree…no wait, that’s not right – but you get the idea. 😉
Meet Neptuna, in all her mermaid-of-honor glory. She was the hostess for our Vacation Bible School program this year, where we did a lot of sea-faring travels. I envisioned my creation of her as a cross between Lady Gaga & ZsaZsa Gabor. She even had her own welcoming jingle.
Ask any mermaid you happen to see…
Who’s the best?…Neptuna!
Chic one of the Sea!
