I kind of left you all hanging in my blog post from Saturday night. Did we get together or didn’t we? Did we get the snow or not??
I woke up to this…
That wasn’t the possible five inches of snow we could have gotten, but this can still make for slippery travel and not fun travel if a person is driving for two hours.
I ended up checking with the kids…we decided that the snow was melting and if they put off travel for a couple hours, it would be melting…and that’s exactly what happened. That is, except for one exception. Buck called a bit later and his girls had temps. It was only 99.7 but we didn’t want anyone else getting sick so Buck and the kids stayed home.
We still managed to have some fun. So much fun that I didn’t get many pictures taken.
Here is Georgie with some Minnie Mouse sunglasses on.
Being things were kind of “off” and Buck wasn’t coming, we decided to invite family friends over. We were a crew of 15 and they were a crew of 10. So we had 25 for supper. That included lots of kids!
Craig helped with getting pork tenderloins fried up…
It was supposed to be a chance to recognize some family birthdays too.
Some present opening happened.
We all had the biggest chuckle when Kayla’s family gave Gannon Legos. He was so excited about them.
He wouldn’t stop staring at the box.
He ended up dancing around the house and even did a summersalt in his complete joy over the present.
He continued to carry it everywhere around the house.
At one point he hid under the table because he didn’t want any other kids to get the present. We finally had to put the present up. We were meaners and didn’t let him open it and play it but with so many kids at my house, we were sure the pieces would get lost.
Kayla did something fun and the boys’ present was actually scrap booking stuff for Kelli. It makes total sense as Kelli is recording things about the boys.
While Gannon was flipping out over his Legos, Jasper was busy reading the tractor book that Kelli bought him.
It was about now in the day that our family friends came over and chaos ruled.
Our friends have six kids and we had five kids. The kids are all in the same age range. They have 10 grandkids with two on the way. I have nine grandkids with one on the way. Not everyone was here but we did have a total of 11 of the grandkids here. It was totally crazy.
We proposed that sometime this summer we need to get all of their kids and grands and all of mine together and have a big summer party. That sounds just grand to me.
Kayla and Spencer along with Jasper stayed overnight at my house. We had a big breakfast together with Kalissa’s family after Carver got home from Sunday School.
A huge shout out to Spencer and Kayla for tackling all the extra dishes that didn’t fit into the dishwasher!!
It was an absolutely chaotic time but I serviously had a wonderful time…we just missed seeing Buck and the kids.
