Hi everyone,

While they were at our home, breakfast, lunch, or dinner was prepared, and we told them the meal was served. They sat at two tables in our large kitchen dinette with an oval table and a long rectangular collapsible table and white tablecloths. We served them all they could eat, and the large kitchenette was the scene of joviality, friendship, laughter, and love with each one of us taking our turn to talk. Bedtime was an awesome time. Daddy and Uncles Charlie and Dollar Bill shared our large guest bedroom with two beds, Uncle Jack slept on a folding bed in our library, and my aunts-in-law slept in the front bedroom. Uncle Jack’s wife, Aunt Novella, stayed at our home, during a later family reunion. On this occasion, the front bathroom was reserved for them while Bennie, Trina, and I used the one in my dressing room, off the master bedroom. Everyone was comfortable, full, and happy.

Help make your family reunions great times to see your relatives and enjoy making them happy and listen to their stories. You won’t regret it! Grab your chance now, holidays and summertime. You will always be glad you did!

I enjoyed entertaining a house full of my relatives.
