Gabe's Wild Night


For those of you who know my Dad, you know he gets the biggest kick out of himself, which makes all of his antics that much more hilarious. Last week my family was in town for a visit. Sunday morning was, of course, crazy with everyone scurrying to get ready for church. In all of the chaos, I didn't happen to notice that my Dad was assinged to dress Gabe. Since we had to take 2 cars, I also didn't even see Gabe before we got to church.
Ben and I got there and sat down, and I look at my Dad is giving me that face from Dumb and Dumber, the one that says "eat up and I'll tell ya". I am wondering what the heck is going on. Then I look over at Gabe and realize that my Dad has dressed him with his shirt unbuttoned to his chest and his collar folded outside of his blazer. If there were goldchains to be found in the house, my Dad would have found them and put them on too. Alas, there were none, so he was missing that crucial aspect of the outfit.
By the time church was over, Gabe looked like a complete mess. He was so tired and he had crumbs from all of the food we shoved at him all over himself. The red tired eyes, the crumbs, and the outfit got us making up stories about how Gabe had had a hard night of drinking the night before. We made up story after story about him and we laughed our heads off. We almost got out a paper bag to put over his bottle to snap some pics of that, maybe it's not too late...

Um, you forgot one very crucial part of the story... the part where he actually did throw up during church. I guess he just couldn't take the guilt. So his hard night out on the town was complete--An extreme hangover paired with puking. :)

Oh yes, I did forget that part didn't I! Oops, that is a crucial part of the story, that and the part where we found him in the gutter with the newspapers all over him...

Hey Riley's! It's so fun to read up on your family. I can't believe you are moving away already and we haven't even seen you. If only Herriman and South Jordan were a little closer! It'll be fun to keep in touch this weay. Got your comments on ours. :) - - Way cute family, by the way.

I love your stories! You always make me laugh! I don't think I ever met your dad- he sounds like a funny guy. I like him.

Tay and I are actually in Texas for Christmas. We will make a quick trip tp Utah for New Years, but you might be gone then?????

Gold chain and a feather hat would have complimented him nicely I am sure! That is hilarious. Once Ezra pooped all over Ryan at church and Ryan took him home and changed him into a little sweater vest but no shirt under. And yes I did take him back home to get his shirt on! =)

Haha, you're so funny! I hope your kids realize someday what an awesome, creative, hilarious, sweet mom they have!

As for the poll - shouldn't it be about time to tell everyone yet? I'm so curious! I think I guessed right though. I wish I could see you before you go, but we're not going to Utah until May next year. Bummer eh? Maybe next Christmas? That seems like light years away!
