Chey making cute favors for our table.  Del and Grandma watching the action from the fire.  Seems I’m not the only one who is perpetually cold, even in Arizona!

The bird.  What?  It looks upside down to you?  You’re crazy.  That’s how you get the most tender breast meat!

Love, love this crew.

I wondered how it would be with this many plus more staying at my house all weekend, but I was sad to see it come to an end.  We had a blast.  Every room/ space was bustling… movies, Settlers, chess, ping-pong, basketball, reading, napping, cooking, internet browsing… pick your activity and join the crew!  My kids were swallowed up by their cousins and went hard all day, every day.  One morning Bex was up early and I was trying to find an empty room for him to play for a while.  The only one without someone sleeping was the laundry room!  There were four people sleeping in my room alone, three in Coop’s.. it was a slumber party every night.  The food was great, the company was better and I loved it so much.  I hate when times like this end, things get way too quiet.  Good thing December is here to keep us busy!
