This three day holiday thing is quite fantastic. We didn't do much of anything... except eat, but it was wonderful to just hang out and talk and even nap. Before everyone showed up we made a good plan for all our meals so that when everyone got here we knew exactly what we were going to feed them. That cut out the "what should we have for dinner" question and it was great for making sure we had enough food for everyone to get stuffed (a MUST in family gatherings and good hosting).
In between meals every one played outside and enjoyed sitting around drinking ginger ale. William and my mom made homemade ice cream and baby and I took long naps. Everyone slept as late as they wanted, it was nice to not have to wake up early. It was perfect.
Last night we talked about renting a movie or playing a game, but then we decided to just sit around and talk and watch the boys play video games. Which was much more fun anyway since me and mom hate board games.
Today, after sleeping in and eating a late breakfast (a MUST for holidays and vacations) everyone headed home.
Uncle Stevie was a huge favorite with Baby Girl. She always smiled and laughed when he was around.
