Awesomest of awesomeness. Truly...

If you know me, you know I have the coolest nieces and nephews. In the world. Seriously. They're all devastatingly handsome/drop-dead gorgeous and absolute rock stars. So, when R unearthed this timeless beauty, it HAD to be shared. I mean HAD to...

Once upon a time, the theme for Trenton's 24th was, "We're from the country and we like it that way." Well, duh. Obviously the float should emanate the essence of Tracy Byrd, right?The costumes, the scenery, it all dictated itself straight out of the song.But what are those crazy kids doing? Waving? Switching sides?? No, my friends. Those geniuses are DANCING. That's right. Homemade line-dance + adorable children = AWESOME.

This. Video. Slayed. Me.

Some referents to this year's float for your enjoyment (seriously, use the link so you can see the's awesome):
  • The kiddo in the back who knows his stuff is now the handsome FBI agent/starting senior center on his football team (holy crap they grow so fast)
  • Pinky is now the blond bombshell in the Incredibles costume
  • Hips on the left with the great bangs is now actress extraordinaire starring as Edna with the fabulous sleeves
  • The little ropin' cowboy in the orange t-shirt is now Syndrome...and no, his giggle has not changed in this many years
  • Though we missed them this year, shiny gold shorts is now a junior, a lady-killer, and a soccer star and the child prodigy 3-year-old in white is now 11 and just getting ready to start breakin' hearts all over, just like his daddy did (and he's actually a very talented dancer...he got this one down after about 10 minutes, almost better than the rest of them)
  • Ignore the psycho teacher who walks through randomly...I have no idea who that is...

Btw, this all started because my sister sent me the coolest thing. Apparently now you can "scrapbook" videos?! (Hence, today's hilariousness rediscovered.) Check this out:

Pretty friggin cool, huh?! If you want to learn how to do it, she'll show you how on her blog tomorrow morning. It looks freakin' awesome to me!!


  1. WE ARE FREAKING AMAZING!!! I still remember performing that dance afterwards at the celebration...or is that my imagination?

  2. Nope, you are right. Y'all performed it later that hilarious.

  3. That was AWESOME! I am always excited to see what you guys are going to come up with. No pressure :)

    BTW I am so dumb. I forgot all about meeting you and then I get home and see your missed call. When are you going to be in Trenton next?

  4. You're right. You do have a totally awesome family!
