This is us. These are our kiddos. And life is teaching us that each day together is a time to be happy! Not to say that we spend each moment of each day bursting with the giggles. But at the end of the day, when we add up all the moments, it seems to be the giggly ones that stand out.

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?
