We fed the squirrels Quaker Harvest Crunch...played '500 up'...let the kids catch frogs...and just had a wonderful time. As it turned out, both families welcomed daughters the following year...and they got along just fine. Our kids all went to school together...and the middle boys had their share of escapades!
Before long, they had all gone their separate ways. We ('the old folks' in this particular scenario) still get together for dinner...or an outing...but the paths of our grown children rarely meet. There's another whole generation of kids involved now...and spouses...and where our parties with the two families once involved 10 people...there are now 24. But why not try getting them all together for a reunion? That's exactly what we did last night. Oh what fun!
It's such a fun time of the year...getting together with friends old and new and enjoying the sweet warmth of the holidays in our homes.
