What has been your worst experience? This one time way back in the Turkey Oaks house there was this giant, long log or stick that I was carrying around and Joe wanted it.  And then he went and told you, and you told me to give it to him so I did and then I stomped off inside.  Joe was calling my name but I didn’t hear him because a bird was crowing and Joe and I both got in trouble for lying.  Either that or when Conner punched me in the face.

Misunderstood T. rex

is a blog we are putting together as our family of ten grows. The blog is called Misunderstood T. rex because, like the infamous dinosaur, our large family is often misunderstood, profiled, and categorized simply because of our collective number of teeth.
This is a blog to help me remember our favorite recipes, and to help our future sons and daughters-in-law find out more about their spouses, what meals they like, and other things we'll throw into the mix.
There will also likely be drawings of T. rex's here and there because I draw T. rex's, being that we're practially related and all. Also, I'm not exactly sure what the plural for Tyrannosaurus Rex should be.
This introduction is much longer than I had planned.
