Or… the Party that never ends.
Wednesday, after Abby’s birthday party, we travelled to Marietta to attend a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for some of my parents dearest friends. Mike and Mollie Haught are like second parents to me and my siblings and so we were honored to be there to celebrate with them.
My sister’s family was traveling from North Carolina. My brother’s family was traveling from Maryland and my Aunt was traveling from West Virginia so we all met up in Marietta for the first party of the weekend. Hannah made everyone a spaghetti dinner in her apartment. That is a total of 25 people and one dog (not mine) in her apartment/dorm room. Fun times! Hannah did a great job.
Karen and I made those turkey shirts (and hair accessories) for the girls and Judah a few weeks before Thanksgiving.
Thursday morning, we had brunch at my mom’s house and I didn’t take my camera to that event. But I took a lot of pictures with Rachel’s camera – maybe she’ll share them on her blog.
Then that afternoon, we had a Girls-Only Tea Party at my house that my Aunt Linda organized and made everything for. She had cut out the special bread and fillings and we put them together.
Sunday morning, my brother preached at our church and talked about how the Kingdom of God is like a bottle of beer. You can hear the message here by clicking on the Nov 27 date.
After everyone left to travel home, Billy and I took a nap… mine was much longer than his. It was such a fun weekend – so good to reconnect with family.
