A Purple Party

In light of the Foster Parent stuff and Ken's mom visiting we decided to have a party this past weekend. Thankfully we chose Sunday, which dawned bright and beautiful and warm.

Warm enough for water guns and badminton
Not to mention RockBandIt was basically a 'Hey look it only took us four years to get the new house presentable for company so come on over and have fun and eat your heart out' kind of party. Oh and wear or bring something purple (but NOT wine) because well Ken's dad used to have purple parties and they were a lot of fun.

The doggies got banned to the office, but never fear, they got PLENTY of attention

I got to play with babies

There was a TON of food for everyone
Farmer Jeff and Susan stopped by and brought me green eggs and some Santa Rosa Plum Jam. Aren't they cute (Jeff and Susan, not the gifts which I don't have a picture of)?
So Farmer Jeff and Susan got to meet to whole motley crew and go home with a pound of Mom's smoked bacon and some of her ham hocks.

My mother in law is still here.

We still have a ton of food.

In spite of the fact that for almost every night this week there have been EIGHT place settings at the dinner table. Jamie came over last night (waving madly).

My fridge and both freezers are still full of food, in spite of watching people eat it.

Tonight is chicken cacciatore again. If you're hungry, show up around 7 and tomorrow night and the next night and every night until April 16th.

My waistline will thank you as will my husband's.
