Family Gathering

We have been trying to get together with the local DeJong family crew about once a month.  It is a great time to catch up on each others' lives and to let the cousins play together.  Our most recent gathering was at our house this past Sunday.

Everyone came over after church and we had a wonderful quesadilla meal.  Of course I forgot to take a picture of that, but when everyone stuck around to watch the kick off of the super bowl we ordered pizza and that I got a picture of!

Highlights from the day:
*Sharing memories of childhood experiences and how much our genes are challenging Emily's parenting.
*Wading through piles of toys that covered the floor.
*Getting to hold my babies - although the little ones are not infants any more and are starting to crawl and sit up.
*Playing 6 Nimmt.
*Running the dishwasher 4 times to keep up with all the dishes from the day.
*Eating yummy food (that dirtied up the dishes).
*Watching my boys do a fabulous job cleaning up the house with me after everyone left.
*Not having to be one of the families that had to drive home late at night in the snow.

We had so much fun.  Thanks for coming over everyone!!
