On Saturday night we had an informal get together at church. Just pizza, soda, Doritos, Uno, Phase 10, and Monopoly. It was great fun and fellowship. The pictures that I have show all the faces so you will just have to imagine the fun.
The interesting thing was that there was 14 adults and 14 children there. To make it even more interesting the oldest child was 6 years old.
So don’t confuse a quiet, relaxing evening with our fun evening. (LOL) Those children had every toy imaginable out in the nursery! At one point the older ones came out and asked if they could play puzzles. About 3 mothers collectively said, “No!”
Everyone seemed to have a good time. The adults talking made almost as much noise as the kids.
“Please move the ship 10.” “Stop slamming that door.” “Mommy, can I have some chips?” “Uno!” “I need $200 – I passed go.” “Mommy, can I give her a pretzel?” “Who went out?” “Already?!” “Don’t take the baby blanket!” “Daddy, he took my toy.” “Draw Two.” “Did anyone mess with my money while I was gone?” “Is there any Dr. Pepper left?”
The church was cleaned up and ready for Sunday, the testimonies were joyful, and we’ll be ready to do it again soon.
The moral is: Don’t think that you have to have everything planned just so to have a great time. Just get together and have some good, clean fun. [If it’s a neutral place it makes the mother’s happier because they don’t have to clean. ;)]
Have a great week!
