I am taking it easy today after a whirlwind weekend of one party after another. Why is life like that? Sometimes nothing is going on and the next time the schedule is packed full. And then when I thought it was already full, a funeral was added to the list Sunday afternoon. I survived, but now it is time to catch my breath.
Here is a bird's eye view of our Labor Day weekend.
Saturday---Stauffer family chicken barbq in honor of Leroy's mother's 90th birthday, attended by 80 of her descendants.
Mom surrounded by all ten of her children . . .
with their spouses . . .
and 19 of her 26 grandchildren (two left before the picture was taken).
It would have been too difficult to collect the 40 great-grandchildren in attendance and make them hold still long enough to get a good picture.
Sunday---soft pretzel party for the August birthdays in our family
Monday--Burkholder apple butter boil
