so ummmm, in case you haven’t heard, there’s a really big premiere this week. yep, that’s right. i don’t know about y’all, but i’m straight up giddy about tonight. duck dynasty. season 4. season tha bomb. season awesome. season i-can’t-get-enough-duck-in-my-life.
but tonight…we get to see something very, very special. we get to watch phil & kay renewing their wedding vows. but it’s more than that….you see, phil & kay never really had a wedding…which makes tonight’s episode ever so much sweeter. the robertson family, the grandkids, the dogs, all gathered together in typical roberston-style. gathered under the trees for a wedding as their eldest son, alan, officiates the wedding ceremony.
one night, after supper at willie & korie’s house, we sat around and discussed this episode….jessica and korie were laughing about how nobody could get through the filming of the ceremony because they all kept crying. take after take, the tears were flowing.
yesterday, korie told me…
“i love all the episodes but this one is the one i’m most proud of. it was such a special moment for phil and kay to stand before all their kids and grandkids after years of good times and bad times and proclaim their love and commitment to one another. it is lagnaippe (that’s a cajun term for a little extra gift:)) that the whole world will get to see it! you’ll laugh, you’ll cry…even the robertson boys teared up!”
as a texan, i’m embarrassed to say i never really knew what lagniappe meant…but it really is a perfect definition of the entire duck dynasty phenomenon…it’s a tv show, but you always get a little extra gift when you watch it. you get laughs, and smiles, and warm fuzzies. you get lessons on wilderness living and pioneering and doe urine. (and yes, i even get happy tears in almost every episode). lagniappe.
let’s all wear bandanas and eat squirrel brains in honor of tonight’s premiere!! oh wait….i think i’ll pass on the brains…
