SO another day of early rising to jet on over to the FBI Academy for Austin's TBS graduation. I prettied up all the heathens and we piled in the car for the excitement!
MawMaw couldn't get Jodie Foster and her FBI role in Silence of the Lambs out of her head so she made the grubs pose for a picture by the sign to prove she was there. YES mother, you were there.
Don't my kids look precious!?
We met Bonnie there and she had to help her man fix his "career" (which they all wear on their chest) so he looked presentable. Aren't they a cute couple?)
Ahhh...yes. Yes they ARE precious. Too bad she was only a seasonal friend. Oh wait, I'll see her at Christmas cuz she's a freakin TEXAN!!! YAY!!! So maybe she's a DUAL seasonal friend.
I know I know...Bonnie is WAY hotter.
Just ask her about her hotness or read her soon to come blog.
(Your welcome Bonnie for once again advertising your blog so you can "borrow" my stalkers"
Here is MY sexy hottie Marine that I'm SOO proud of for bustin his butt!! Love you lover, you're awesome!!!!
Here are the rowdy heathens. I like how this picture depicts their TRUE personalities. The girls are models with their fake poses and smiles. Cooper is in a different world. Miah is whining and crying about who knows what. Jake is just there, but he's really not.
During the ceremony we loaded the kids up on snacks to keep them happy. That only worked until the snacks were gone which was about 10 minutes.
Not a good look for you Coop Dawg...
What do they call it? Whatever it is, he got it and he freakin ROCKS!!!!!
Afterwards we went outside for more photo ops in the dress blues. Okay, now is it just me or do my boobs look totally funky in this picture? They look like saggy bags of rocks. Nasty I tell you. I hope they didn't really look like this the whole day. Maybe THAT'S why Bonnie's the hot friend and I'm just...NOT. That's okay though because Austin is turned on by the fact that I have 397 kids, my boobs are bags of rocks (apparently) and my butt is ghetto. That's all that matters :)
OH and also, Izey is in love with me, that's why he can't take his eyes off me and I love that.
Here we are again. Lovers being lovers. Austin was embarrassed because people were giving him a hard time that he's a Captain but only has ONE ribbon to show. I think it looks JUST fine and if they gave ribbons for completing freakin LAW school on TOP of grad school or passing the annoying stressful bar then he'd be stacked. Poor lover...you're the best to me no matter HOW many ribbons you have flaring across your career'y chest. I'm so proud of you!
Austin and Nelson. Nelson thinks he's a super model. You should have seen his manly poses. He's such a cutie though I guess he's allowed to be that way! Although he'll never be as hot as MY Austin. Keep trying though Nelson...you're SO close. *wink*
The day was grand. The three past, present and future Marines walked away feeling accomplished.
The celebratory lunch was at Ruby Tuesday. By then, Pops had gotten his wedgie out from yesterday and was smiling again.
Please disregard that big yellow crayon Kora thinks should be in the picture too.
Isaak and I enjoyed our shrimp and formula. He was still concerned. But he had fun.
After lunch MawMaw decided to show her true colors.
So as IF that day wasn't long enough, we decided to make it longer. We took everyone over to the Marine Corps Museum to have a little USMC fun.
Maw Maw did a pullup. BUT, she was actually standing on the ground using the little bar so it doesn't count.
I, on the other hand, busted out a REAL pullup because my adrenaline was freakin flowing and I ROCKED it out! Bonnie and Amber...LOOK AT ME!!!! In my skirt and heels!!!
(ps...I did the jump trick like you taught me Bon)
Jake did the rifle simulation and got 59%. He looked like a hottie!
To end the trip we visited the Museum Gift Shop where we found THIS amazing masterpiece made out of LEGO!!!! Holy mother of Marine Corps LEGO!!!
For those idiots who haven't lived on Earth for any of their life, this is the recreation of the famous Iwo Jima photograph of the second flag raised on Mt. Suribachi. The photograph was taken by Joe Rosenthal and the flag was raised by Easy Company in 1945 after they experienced 40% casualties after fighting for four days straight during World War II.
So that's all...and to end on a good note, let me share with you a lil sumthin to make all you Devil Dogs out there smile! Ooh-Rah!
