Jeff and I hosted the family for fathers day yesterday. It was just supposed to be 9 people, myself, Jeff, my sister, my mom, my dad, my grandpa, my uncle, my aunt and my cousin. It ended up being another aunt, uncle, cousin, her husband and her 2 children. It was a last minute (decent sized) addition to our shindig. I kinda freaked out because 6 extra people throws a bit of a wrench into it. Did we have enough food?? is my house clean enough?? do we have enough chairs?? Oh man, I went into panic mode. The party started at 2 p.m. and they contacted us at 12:30 p.m. to see if it was okay if they could come. See, we normally go to my grandpas house but Jeff and I decided that since it is far from toddler friendly we would be more than happy to host. This particular side of the family doesn't really come to anything so we never gave it a thought, they called my grandpa yesterday though and told him they were coming out to visit and he told them he wouldn't be home because he was going to Jeff and Jill's and that is how that happened. It ended up being fine though, we had plenty of food, my mom and dad brought some extra chairs and it was a great day! The more the merrier!
I will leave you with a favorite quote of mine from the movie "Clueless"
"So like, right now for example. The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, "What about the strain on our resources?" Well it's like when I had this garden party for my father's birthday, right? I put R.S.V.P. 'cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin'. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier. And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much." ~Cher, Clueless
