Kids in the Kitchen

This afternoon we had a full house. With a dozen kids and almost that many adults, there was just a bit of chaos in my kitchen.

I had four of my siblings here visiting and would have loved to have the rest of them here as well. My sister and her husband were in town with their twin daughters. So, my family that lives in the area all came over to visit as much as possible.

It has been a fabulous weekend of children racing through the house. The youngest three are not yet two years old. My sister’s girls were born just six weeks after my own youngest son.

The three of them never stopped moving if they were awake. We were determined to get a photo of them all in the same place, so we sat them on the counter with my older boys.

They were so excited to be in a new area, they actually sat still long enough for us to get a picture for my mom.

My awesome husband insisted that I take the time out of the kitchen and actually relax. So, I did. The only thing we made was a batch of Homemade Playdough for the older kids to play with.

We ordered sandwiches enough for everyone, other families brought food to share and we ate potluck style whenever we were hungry. Sometimes, it is not all about the food. It is so much more important to enjoy the time together.

I don’t have a recipe for you today, but I’ll be back in the kitchen tomorrow! Have a blessed week!

    So cute – there is nothing more fun that the cousins all being together. My youngest is a month apart from two of her cousins as well and it's the same thing. They never stop moving the whole time they are together. Love all of the blonde hair! They definitely look like cousins. Enjoy!

    Those are such adorable photos! There's something really special about kids having time with their cousins. Some of my happiest childhood memories are the times I spent with my various sets of cousins. I'm so glad you had a great weekend!
