So we came up with the plan to do a "Christmas in July". Still have it at my house but do an outdoor picnic in the backyard. That way all the little ones can run around all they like. The adults can sit in the sun (or shade) and talk... and eat and drink.
Here are just a few pics of our "Christmas" -
We had lots of food - BBQ chicken, pasta salad, potato salad, fruit salad, chips & dip, veggie tray, cookies, and ice cream! We also had lots to drink - Iced tea, lemonade, a few sodas, water and of course wine and beer!
We had wine glasses you could draw on -
and of course no one forgot their cell phones! -
Here are all (almost all) the female members of the family, the mom, 2 daughters, 4 granddaughters and 3 great-granddaughters -
