Family Night Supper

A few years ago, I was sitting here during the babies nap time and I got to thinking about my family....
My Dad,brothers and sister and how much they mean to me. With my Mom gone on to glory now it makes you want to make the most ,of the time that you do have here on earth with the family that we have.
 Now that my siblings and I are grown, the business of life keeps us from seeing each other as often, even though we don't really live that far apart.
 As I was sitting here thinking about them and aching to see them, I got to thinking why not host a family night supper and try and do it once a month? So that's how our family night suppers came about. And that's a pretty big feat considering how big my family is. I am the oldest of 5 children. And we all have spouses and children.Our house is super tiny! But where there is a will there is a way right? Let me tell you friends this little house is bursting at the seems when we all come together! And I cherish every minute! Including my Dad the grand total of all of us are 23 1/2.(Baby Jake has to make his appearance). Wow that's a lot of people! Last night we had a family night supper and sadly my dad and oldest brother didn't get to come this time around. They missed out on some good food and fellowship! However, my dear Grammy, Aunt, and cousin Jessie was here with us. We had a potato bar ( sweet and regular baked) with all the extra trimmings. We also had cake and ice cream for Katherine's birthday.
