Meet The Babies

We had a "Meet the Babies" party yesterday, so family could meet the recent additions to the clan, and it was a grand time. We had brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, first, second and even third cousins, and first cousins once- and twice-removed. All this with about two dozen people. Here, we see GUD (Great Uncle Dave) in his glory, on the hammock with, left to right, Nicholas, Samantha and Cristian. Standing behind the hammock, looking cute, left to right, are Kenna, Makaila and Hailey.

We had my world-famous burgers, hot dogs and chicken on the grill, deviled eggs, coleslaw, apple-berry salsa, veggies and dip, brownies, cakes, Rice Krispie Treats and pie! We even had circus peanuts! Of course, we also had sidewalk chalk and bubble wands for the kids.

We all had a fun day, and I got to hold babies, which I love to do, but I didn't hog them, even though I wanted to, because that would be ill-mannered.

I hope all the kids slept well last night, and I hope we can see them again soon.
