We have concluded our wonderful Family Slumber Party. I am incredibly blessed with a saintly husband and a marvelous family. Ten of our twelve children and their families came. Yes, that was a HUGE number of people, but that meant there was someone there (hopefully) for everyone to have fun with.
I made embroidered pillowcases for every grandchild who attended (I made 34). I was grateful for every smile of appreciation.
We did a Family Cutthroat Kitchen. If you’ve never watched that show on television, give it a try. We had a great time with that. We had flour sock dodge ball, good food, amazing fireworks (we were up above the BYU stadium so saw their display totally light up the sky as well as fireworks all over the valley), peaceful night’s sleep under the stars, and heart-warming family time.
Several years ago I made a family flag. We display it every time we have a major family gathering. Each of our children chose the colors they wanted. Larry and I are in the center. I love it when that flag is up because it signifies we are together.
Now to put my life and house back in order
