4. Noise makers (see, #2)

5. Apples to Apples

6. Family

7. Awesome brother, Craig and sis-in-law, Jod, to host even when they're going out of town the next day.

Apples to Apples is such a fun game. A's mom just got "The Last Word" and it's pretty fun as well. I'm all about fun games at family gatherings. Someone else will watch my children, right? :)

Atkinson get togethers are sweet!
You guys get together GREAT food for every event. Love that!

I too love games. Anytime:)

As for the hot mom tried to get me to make her hot chocolate mix ...granted we didn't have the recipe on hand, but I really do like my Nestle Rich Chocolate. Don't knock it unless you've tried it:) The last time someone made me some "Real" hot chocolate mix, it wasn't good. However, I'll give anything a try...I'm just sayin':)

btw, i seriously love the princess and ballerina costumes on the girls. So funny to me, just not used to that with our boys and all boy cousins! (except we now have two baby nieces)

Nay is looking so old and getting lots of pretty dark hair:)

That was a blast! We love to have everyone over anytime.

That looks like fun -- we all gave up and went to bed by 11, leaving a disappointed 8-yr-old who was pacing himself well to make it to midnight...
