Turkey Party and a little Jail Time

We were so very blessed this Thanksgiving. One of my favorite brothers and his family came down for the weekend. We never get company, so we were LOVING it! Add to that that we only get to see said brother and fam once a year, this was indeed a special treat. The kids loved having their cousins over, and Kylie especially loved having a substitute little sister. My nephew even turned into our slave for the day on Friday and weed wacked our neglected yard. Then he watched the crazies so we could do a double date that night. And he only wanted to be compensated with a Subway sandwhich. What a great kid!
So they headed back on Saturday morning, and my kids were so sad all day long-(sleep deprivation from the late nights intensifies the hard to say goodbye thing, apparently) So we put them to bed at 6 pm that night. Daniel ran out to grab a few groceries that night, while I cleaned up from our wild week. He seemed to be gone a while, but I wasnt too worried.  

Until he called me.     

And told me that he had been arrested.
My heart stopped beating for a few seconds and I asked him what had happened. He told me he had taken some garbage to dispose of (we thought that garbage day would be thrown off from the holiday and missed it, therefore had a full trash can) and some cops caught him, searched his car and found his gun, and then cuffed him.
So I freak out, imagining him at the county jail in an orange jumpsuit sitting by some smelly scruffy drunk druggie, trying to figure out how I can get over there to get him as my kids are in bed. Plus there is no way I can come up with enough bail money to get him out. Then I am thinking they will have impounded his car, so we are gonna have to come up with more money to get that back.  And then I am wondering if he is gonna have to go to court for something, and we will have to pay some lawyers fees on top of it all.
But back to the first problem;
Daniel, in jail.
How to get him out.
SO I ask him- "what should we do?"

Daniel replies, "just kidding."


My dearest darling Daniel is in BIG trouble now.

What a fun THanksgiving! I just spoke with Allison today and she told us how much fun they had! Daniel is a punk! I must say it sounds like he has some of your brothers attributes!

How nice that your favorite brother got to come spend some time with you. Sounds like an awesome weekend.

And you totally had me freaked out about the jail thing. Stinkin Daniel. That sounds like some thing my brother would do. He's a major prank player.

What a Punk! Some things just shouldn't be joked about. On the plus side, if he ever does get arrested, I know a guy who works for the county... ;)

Really Kimmie, maybe you just rubbed off on him--remember the hair!!!
I am jealous though of the weekend and so wanted to be there too. Hopefully it will happen soon.

Looks and sounds like you had a great holiday!
I can't believe Daniel did that! Hasn't he ever heard of the boy who cried wolf?

Glad you had family come visit, that's always a great treat. Daniel is hilarious! Ok probably not in the moment but reading it was awesome.

You have a better sense of humor than I do, that's for sure!!

I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving with your family :)

Gee, Brian's such a stinker I would've automatically assumed he was pulling my leg (all the while imagining all the consequences as you did, just in case). LOL.
