Dad's babyback ribs, Grandma Emma's green chile rice, Debbie's fumi salad: things on my dinner table yesterday, none of which I allowed myself to eat. There were also 2 big luscious cakes and Debbie's margaritas that I did not even taste. But everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves, watching football and doing some serious eating at our family bbq yesterday. Susan and I took lots of pictures with my camera (hers finally ran out of battery juice). And when Maxine finally took a nap it was on my dad's chest for almost 2 hours.
Attendees: Debbie and Dad, Kaitlyn, Grandma and Grandpa, Susan and us.
I want to thank my family for being so fun and happy. We hardly ever get this many of us together in one house at the same time, we're all so busy with less important things. I'm so glad we all could take the time to hug, laugh, fart and catch up on being a family.
