Crazy Fun

We live in a small cottage.  Today, my brother Ricky, his wife and their kids, grandkids and friends of kids and grandkids spent the evening at our house for a welcome fall, birthday, festival, celebration.  I think at last count there were 27 people here.

We had chili, white chili, taco soup, baked potatoes, noodles, cornbread, home made cookies, smores,
cake, and more.  We had football on tv, games in the backyard, playdough and water colors on the porch.

By the time everyone went home, I was on automatic.  It was intense fun, sorta like a rehearsal   for Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Suddenly the house went from loud noisy laughter to eerie silence when they all left.   

I have a month to rest and regroup before Thanksgiving.  I think I can make it.  This much fun takes 
planning, energy and a little bit of craziness.  

Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. Jordon is a dear. And then a 27 family party. Whew. Good memories.

  2. Having the crowd over is a lot of fun but also a lot of work. 27 people in a small cottage is a lot of people. So glad you all had good food and great fun too.

  3. But aren't you glad they came with all that energy? It makes you tired but keeps you young.
