When the meeting was over, it took her about 20 minutes just to get out of the church. We finally asked one of her friends to bring her and we headed for the house. There were tons of people already here as we made our way through the front door. Within minutes the living room and entryway were so crowded I had to direct traffic just to allow more people in. I’m not kidding when I say that my estimate for our food plans of 100 people was met and exceeded!
For about 15 minutes it was totally crazy here! It was impossible to move from room to room, but people finally got through the food line and started moving into other rooms in the house and then it settled down. I don’t think we had this many people here at the same time even when Bossy was married. But that was outside so it was different anyway.
We had two 20-quart stockpots full of chili and 180 rolls. Now we have less than half of one pot of chili left and about 40 rolls. We went through lots of food but I think everyone was satisfied. We have one tray of our sugar cookies left and a couple of bags of cookies although I think the kids have done a pretty good job on them since we cleaned up.
It was a wonderful, crazy, awesome day! Teach’s friend, Bethany, agreed to take some family pics for us so we had a 20-minute photo session after everyone was gone. I thought you might like to see how crazy we are. It was a good day.
