We spent thanksgiving week with family in a rented home in Bountiful, Utah. There were 22 of us in one house! We all had a great time, got some family pictures (thanks to Liz), and all the kids got to know each other– some for the first time.
We held a ‘birthday party’ for everyone and had Christmas presents for everyone.
We had time to get to talk as small and large groups
There was a play room for the kids, that they used a LOT
I would often find the children in small groups playing with each other
The children would make cards for us and each other
We also had a chance to go to Chucky Cheese, for a break?
Then it was back to the house again
At one point I found the ‘girls’ dancing in the kitchen to music playing on Terri’s machine
Then, of course, there was the need for family pictures, taken by Liz
It was fun to watch the parents try to get the kids attention. Sometimes it worked, and sometimes the children just screamed anyway…
As we were leaving, some last minute pictures were taken
We all had a great time, and have a lot of memories to treasure. Happy Holidays!
