What happens when you plan a Bar B-Que

You get old roommates that have not been in the same house since they got married 7 plus years ago. and 5 kids later...

and Thanks to Becca she has shown me how to add pictures while I am typing.... YEAH!

so here you go...







OK you also have to throw in a missionary or two while your feeding a group of people...



and last but not least you give a child a bowl of ice cream and sprinkles on it and you have one happy child.

NOW the funny thing is its whipped cream. Right out of the spray bottle. You got to Love Uncle Scott...

and on the other hand... I feed them, fill there children with sugar and SEND them home. with all my love.

now you really want to hear something funny.. I now have a sand box-pool in my yard. Under the deck. After the last time I had kids over and nothing to do while we adults were talking they need something to do.

So We started dinner with Steaks on the grill, chicken, corn on the cob, a beatiful salad, potato salad, home made bread, watermelon, a peach cobbler with ice cream thanks to BEN and MANDY... I forgot to get it at the store and they were Happy to pick it up on there way... I know I said not to bring anything but I forgot. Its called OLD AGE. I dont know if I forgot anything or not.

Now can anyone tell me how... I have no flys in my back yard until I cook and it seems like they come out of the wood work. Why is that!

I did all this food in 5 hours and my back is killing me and its so much easier to do dinner for 50 instead of 2 or 3. and it so much easier to do clean up when you send it all home with them! YEAH... Ok for those who have my tupperware or my new glass baking dishes or anyone who has taken anything home with them... It's time for you to bring them home (BEN AND BECCA)!

Ok if i did a count...

2 missionaries, Ben and Mandy, Ben and Becca, Issy and Theo, Becca friend with 2 kids sorry I for names. George and Shelly and Rebecca, Keith and Michelle and Kalyn and Conner, and James. My Next door Neighbor Peter came over and that was very nice and Kay came over and told me that Mary and her could not come over with there two kids and they were sorry but they took food home.

So thats a total of 22 people. see how much eaiser it is to cook for that many.

Ok well I am off to bed. I am tired and well I was in my 7th Heaven.

Thanks for all those memories guys!

Good thinking, Becca, because the sooner you get them back to Scott the sooner he can fill them all up for you again...it's magic!!

Nice job, Scott, of bringing joy through fellowship and food to those you love!! Love, mom
