Thankful for Bottomless Mashed Potatoes & No “Turkey on the Shelf”

So excited! Thanksgiving may just be my favorite holiday. No Elf on the Shelf causing me undue stress, no bunny or old man breaking-and-entering our house, no kids changing their minds about their costumes every nine minutes… just a time to be thankful for family, bottomless mashed potatoes, gravy oozing from my pores, and my old maternity pants. Hope everyone has a great holiday!

-Candy (who’s making a not-so-dramatic return to writing on The Laughing Stork next week, once I kayak my way out of the mashed potatoes)

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
