we just cant seem to get along..
i dont spend much time wit them, & i cant even recall the last time
i had dinner with my mom.
or even the last time i even had dinner MADE by my mom.
which is probably how i started cooking on my own.
But ever since i met Frankie,
his family has welcomed me with open arms,
and i have been so blessed since.~
|Frankie, his dad, cousin, niece, auntie, mom, myself, Amy (sister), Auntie|
His mom tends to buy random trinkets & gadgets that she never uses,
but still insists that i read the manuals for them anyway; from ice-cream churners,
waffle irons, cone makers, individual egg steamers... any random cookware!
She buys a ton of little dolls, hair-clips, accessories, bags, & keychains and she
attaches them to any place she can find, haha!
shes just an adorable person, whos fun to be around~
Even sitting around watching game shows with her is a joy, served with
corn-on-the-cob (her fav.) while garnished with random arguments
over the correct answers, to the trivia questions.
& his dad is a totally " hip & happenin` " individual !
He initiates conversations of Frankie's interests,
like tracking cars, work, & tennis. While learning a few curse words from Frankie,
and tries to fuse them into his sentences. (which always makes me laugh)~
He also brainstorms new ideas for his company by involving the development
of car-parts, since Frankie has such a deep passion for cars & the track.
oh and did i mention that he even drinks with Frankie & his friends?
haha, such an awesome dad.
& every other week or so, he tries to have a "cooking day" with me,
and we`d cook together, exchange tips, provide suggestions, and show off by
channeling our inner iron chef skills. BAM !
but even with all these amazing features, the best part about them is
their never ending love for their family.
once in awhile, ill catch a glimpses of them just looking at Frankie in
complete adoration, and it`ll make my heart melt.
Theyre such an interactive, supportive, happy, & generous bunch~
im extremely thankful for them to consider me as one of their own.
i love them all deeply.
This entry is dedicated to them;
it was truly a Happy Thanksgiving !
