Last night we had a very memorable Sunday Dinner – a monthly occurrence with the Anderson family - complete with 4 Milwaukee grandparents, 8 Chicago parents and 8 kids aged 8, 6, 3, 3, 3, 1, 1, and 6 months. It was a sight to behold. The gracious hosts had 3 high chairs, a kid’s table and a beautiful adult’s dining table set with china and silverware. The food was delicious including a number of delectable Indian dishes, roasted potatoes, roast chicken, salad, broccoli, a fruit platter, and of course valentines day cookies and a birthday carrot cake for moi! Although my taste buds are currently in hibernation, the Indian dishes temporarily cleared my sinuses!
Family get-togethers are getting more crowded every year, and I LOVE it. When else can you see two 1 year olds poke each other in the eye, while the 8 year old plays dress up with two 2 year olds, and then they all join together to play Wii Just Dance in front of the TV. Henry loves playing with his cousins, and they are so sweet with him.
Everyone tolerated my coughing, hacking, raspy smoker voice (which someone – not my husband - called “kinda sexy”) and nose honking. See current self-portrait above.
