Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Now that I have calmed down from the cereal disaster I can get back to posting about some of the fun things we have done during our first week at Mimi & Papa's house.

Last Monday of course was our travel day.

Tuesday morning we walked to my Grandma's, who we now call GG. After a nice visit we went back to Mimi & Papa's to get ready for the afternoon and supper with family. There was Uncle Al & Auntie Florence, Uncle Edgar & Auntie Angie, my cousin Bernadine and two of her kids Kirsten & Colton. It was so nice to have a family get together and catch up. But more importantly it is so special to me for my kids to experience this.

Growing up we had these kind of family get togethers often. Besides holidays there were lots of birthdays to celebrate. Our little gathering on Tuesday was much smaller than those gatherings I remember. Lots of people and people eating everywhere. In fact, Bernadine was pretty lucky to be able to sit at the "big table". LOL She was married and had kids when she finally asked how old you had to be before you could sit at the big table! We usually had to eat in the living room or downstairs because there was always more older people that got the prime seats at the big table.
