Family Reunion

We went to my husband's family reunion yesterday.  Goose and KT
Bug went with us.  After we ate we had an auction.  Family members donate items and we auction them off.  It was hilarious.  Orange cookies are a big thing in the family.  Several plates of cookies were sold.  Someone left their paper plate and utensils on the auction table and they were even sold, hah.  My husband bought some of the cookies......they aren't GF so I can't eat them. 
But he did buy me a ME cone thing with some ME items inside.  They decide every year who to give the money to.  Last year it was to two family members that were battling cancer.  This year to the three new brides. 
His family is so nice.  Very conservative, ordinary people that care about each other. 
The girls were wound up on the way home.  They had to listen to "Dancing Queen" over and over again.  When we pulled into their driveway we had the music blarring and we were all singing. 
Today hubby and I are doing absolutely nothing.  Everyone needs a day of rest, don't you think.  ((((HUGS))))

It is so nice that you all get to have so much family time...What a great idea the auction is and how funny that if it is not tied down it just may get sold.

You have a very sweet blog. How nice to be able to go to a family reunion like this. It sounds like you're blessed with a very nice family. I loved the Fairy Godmother too. I'll bet you're a Fairy "Grandmother" with all of those grandkids :-)
Blessings,
Marcia

What a sweet story! I love that you do an auction - that's too funny. I think that picture with the girls asleep with Grandpa is just darling. Makes me miss mine. :)

Love your grandchild's car pulling the wagon. How cute is that! We plan to get our grandson a truck of some kind for his 2nd birthday.
