Uncle Ryan drinks his coffee.
Aunt Sherri smells of soap.
Cousin Joshua chews his bubblegum.
Gigi tries to cope.

My mother turns red laughing.
Alex tries to please.
Alan snaps his photos.
Nick tinkers on his keys.

George watches football.
Justin stuffs his face.
Trixie often barks.
Abby wears her lace.

Dinner with the clan.
Kisses good-bye on the cheek.
Although we hate to go our ways,
We’ll do it again next week!

That was so cool! I liked the way it was written; so rythmically and bouncy. It was great.
