(Clone Commander Turkey): "I have a bad feeling about this..."

The Peep and I are subject matter experts on the subject of "Star Wars - The Clone Wars.

So I was tickled when he brought this home and announced it to be a drawing of a Galactic Republic "All-Terrain Turkey Exterminator" or AT-TE walker, a centerpiece of traditional clone trooper celebrations.

I hope that all of you, republicans and separatists alike, enjoy a peaceful and happy Thanksgiving with those you love close around you.

Update 11/26: Just for the record, it was a truly awful, rainy, shitty day outside, so we stayed indoors from wakeup until dinner. The kids burned a lot of electronic media, including "Transformers; Revenge of the Fallen" which was the most awesome piece of Michael Bay used food I've ever seen but it had explosions in it so it totally worked for the 6-and-a-half-year-old. We'd had turkey earlier in the week so dinner was beef tenderloin. yams and greens with a fillup of tradition - pumpkin pie - for dessert. The Peep hated everything and had a bagel instead, and Little Miss chattered nonstop through the meal and did nothing but drink juice and ate two mushrooms out of the greens. Oh, well...

And then we went out to Michael's for some post-dinner craft shopping...

Anyway, nice day with kidlets. Hope yours was, too.

And heaven knows we need an all-terrain turkey exterminator. Good call.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family...and I think I may need to hire you to write the stories of all my illustrated children. You have the knack.
