party at grammie's house

Since my Grandma Sally died (over seven years ago), we haven't ever taken the opportunity to have a family reunion.  Pathetic, eh?  After much pondering and lamenting, we decided to throw a casual get- together at our place, being that we live in my Grandma's house.  It's funny how you get all jittery about seeing people you haven't seen in a while.  It's family, for heaven's sake!  It had been so long that I just hoped someone would show up besides our little clan. 

And you know what?  It was so much fun!  I loved chatting with long lost cousins and meeting their significant others.  We had a blast reminiscing about old times and watching our kids climb the same trees we had played in as kids. 

In fact, it turned out to be so darn much fun I think we should make it a tradition. 

And next year, will you far away cousins come?  Pleeeeeease? 

We missed you.

Thanks so much for planning and hosting the party. It was great to see everyone and to see what you've done with the little pink house. The changes are wonderful, especially since you maintained the nostalgia. When I was snooping, I found the utility room still smells the same. Funny.
