PARTY PLANNING!

We had a wonderful weekend at the first family reunion in over two years. We had all ages from 90 years old to 10 months.

The weather was beautiful, a little cool in the morning but it warmed up nicely during the day. There was food galore I mean everything . We had fried chicken, ham , all kinds of salads, bake beans, ham and bean soup, vegetables, fruit, all kinds of chips , and desserts. Plus cold drinks. Everyone of course bought a dish to pass

Our daughter and son in law bought a new home this last winter after living in the same house for thirty years. The new home is lovely and the property around it is beautiful. It is going to take them some time to figure out what flowers , plants, trees and shrubs they want to keep and what they want to get rid of. It is my understanding that the property was gorgeous this Spring with all the tulips in bloom. I’ll bet with all the trees ,Autumn and Christmas will be beautiful.

They have what is known as the John Deere Shed for our son in law. It was set up very nicely. He can sit there and relax. Our daughter has what is known as the MERRY, MERRY Shed. For Mother’s Day her husband hung her tiffany lamp they had bought from their old home. It looks lovely. She has many projects going on, including making fairy lamps. W

Food was excellent, ham, fried chicken, ham and bean soup, bake beans, salad of all kinds, chips of all flavors, you name it we had it. Dessert was a lovely cake made by our daughter Kathy and showed the new house and property. It was delicious.

We had so much fun watching everyone play the different games they had. Corn hoe, Chess, Frisbee, Croquet, and Lacrosse. In the evening we had a camp fire and everyone shared a memory that they had not shared before with most of the people. Fun! Fun! Two of our older grandchildren wrote a song for my husband and I. Good job!

Parties take a lot of work, as any hostess well knows . Organization, planning and replanning. There are lists everywhere. Lists of what needs done and what won’t get done. WHAT WON’T GET DONE. Very important and you need to be at peace with that list.

Hopefully the following list will help you when you are planning an event:

Determine date, time and place. Allow plenty of time for everyone to get the date on their calendar.

Send out texts, e-mails and special phone invites. Ask for a yes, no , maybe

Determine what you as host and hostess are going to buy and ask each family to let you know what they are bringing. Some people are excellent at this and other’s aren’t. Go with the flow.

Don’t forget the paper supplies needed and the coolers and ice for drinks.

Plan sleeping arrangements. Let everyone know what hotels, motels etc. are close to your home. Our son and his family slept outside in a big tent and two smaller ones. Cold , but they said they were warm in their sleeping bags. Heard coyotes!

Oh yes pray for good weather!

We really had a fantastic time and so enjoyed family and friends.

Relationships! What is important.

This is an update from a blog originally written December 29, 2018. I figured an update would be good right about now as the cold and dreary days are starting to wear.

To me, the most important skill is good communication.  If you do not have this you are heading for trouble, even if the problems are small at this time, they  magnify themselves eventually.  All of a sudden you will notice an increase in stress, untruths being told, children getting involved and hard feelings evolving.

Ask yourself do you have the ability to forgive and forget? Are you able to rationally listen to what your partner is saying? Can you stand united, knowing you are able to talk things out?

Think about the following and then talk:

  • Do not talk when you are very angry or hurt. Walk away and cool down.
  • Do not go to bed without talking. At least begin to try and determine what the real problems are. You will not solve anything at this point, but you need to make a pact to talk further.
  • Do not carry a grudge! What does that help to solve? Communicate! Communicate! Take turns talking. You first, me second! Me first, you second.
  • Do not involve children in your arguments, until you determine if the children are all involved or is it one child who is the instigator.
  • If new family guidelines need to be established, you may need to get help.#good communication#grudge#angry#

A few good prayers might also help. They cannot hurt.
