The Gang’s Here…minus a third…

Our Canadian family arrived on time! There are now 10 grandchildren here! South Carolina, Saskatchewan, Canada and Michigan are represented. Illinois is still to come… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA We have turned the garage into a dining room! It worked great! We’ll just add another table when the rest come this weekend! Going around the table is Maddie, Megan, Armon, Rob, Shauna, Annie, Elmise Bella, Haleigh, Kaleb, Miller, Mason, Tim, Christy and Jerry at the head.

 

Our menu was barbaqued chicken, potato OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAsalad, veggies, biscuits, and blueberry pie. Kaleb got a hold of my camera without me knowing it. I’m serving the pie and ice cream.

While we were getting supper on the kids played Four Square out in the driveway. I don’t know the game but they sure seemed to have fun.

    How very nice of your new neighbor! It certainly makes things easier having a separate sleeping space for the girls. See you tomorrow.
