Finally settling down on Saturday

It was a very full day today.  I got up early and made some cookies....mmmmmm were they delicious and I am going to share the recipe with you later on this month.  Stay tuned for it because these cookies were definitely keepers.

Then I started making Minestrone Soup for lunch today.  Frank went to go get his Mom and Larry ran to the store to get sandwich makings.  Mary's sisters and their husbands arrived and visited for a while.  A short time later, my brother, Dick, arrived and then shortly after that my sister, Dawn, and her son, Jacob, arrived.  We ended up having 12 for lunch today.  Luckily I had plenty of food.

I kept it easy and had a soup and sandwich buffet.  

When lunch was completed we straightened up, got the rub on the ribs and Dick, Dawn, Jake and Mary's brother in law, Ken, all left.

Frank and I went to pick up some late season corn to serve with dinner tonight and then headed to Mass.  When we got home from Mass it was time for round 2.  We only had 8 for dinner so we ate upstairs and then sat and visited for a few hours.

Now the house is straight, we are in our night clothes, Michael Buble is on the stereo and I have a glass of wine.  Life is good!!  Mary's sister, Pat, is spending the night.  Frank is taking his Mom home and tomorrow morning we are meeting Mary's other sister and her husband for breakfast before they head home to the west side of the State.
