CharlesInCharge Eats A Turtle

This is NOT pretty.
If you came looking for pretty
you better move along.
CharlesInCharge
is ONE YEAR old.
Yep-
ONE!
AND....
He ate a turtle for his
birthday!
See!  I TOLD YOU it is not pretty.
Poor turtle.
Do you want to see him
BEFORE
CharlesInCharge
got a hold on him?
Pretty cute, huh?
His Mama Mimi baked it for him.
It was truly a turtle cake...
with layers of pecans and caramel
and chocolate inside.

CharlesInCharge was thrilled...
The turtle?
Not so much.
I think the head came off
first...
probably a good thing...
no brain-no pain, as they say.

Had he been smart he would have
crawled away whilst he still
had the chance.
Too Late, Mr.Turtle!
Awww...
Mr. Turtle is 
All Gone!
Who ate him?
I think the evidence 
speaks for itself.
Now, if you are 
VERY GOOD 
and promise not to spit
in the mashed potatoes
when no one is looking,
tomorrow I will share 
a bit of our 
EARLY THANKSGIVING
that we enjoyed 
on Sunday.
I am off for the day
to enjoy 
my family.

Not sure WHAT happened
I could NOT post this
morning!  UGH!!
