I visit my Hometown about once a year. This year, I was In town for about five days and there was a family Get-together. It wasn’t a Family reunion since it was just my Immediate family, but still, there were a total of about 45 people who Showed up.
Our family parties are always held at the home of one of my brothers or sisters. It is always a Potluck. We never have formal Dinner parties and so we never need Catering. At the potluck this past weekend, some people brought Casseroles, some brought Chips and dip, and some brought cookies and Cakes for Dessert. I usually don’t have to bring anything since I’m the Guest of honor.
There is always a lot of talking and laughing at our family parties. Someone always brings up old Childhood memories or a funny Anecdote from the old days. A family get-together as big as ours can be Overwhelming for some people. When they ask me what it’s like to be part of such a big family I always tell them one thing: It’s noisy!
