We are having a family gathering Saturday
I have 3 children, 10 grand-kids and a great grandson, we normally get together for holidays and birthdays. As the children have gotten older, they no longer want parties so the family gatherings have dwindled to an unacceptable level.
My oldest granddaughter Jeanna has her birthday in January but at 23 she no longer gets a party. My daughter has been craving my stuffed artichokes and beef cutlets so, this Saturday we are all meeting for lunch at my son Jason's house and we are having our family favorites. I am also making a pot of lentil soup as well as the artichokes. Steve my other son is bringing the mashed potatoes, my daughter Kasey is bringing dessert and we are going to have a gathering of the clan.
Jason will be frying up the beef cutlets. He is actually very good at it and since it is rather time consuming, I am glad he is doing it instead of me.
How many of the grands will actually be available is anyone's guess with jobs and other commitments.
It won't be too long of a gathering since Joshua has a hockey game at 3:30 p.m. That is okay with me though, Jason lives out in the woods and I would rather not be driving home from his house in the dark.
Do you get together with family for these types of gatherings that celebrate nothing but family?
