The Houghs do Labor Day
I have been trying to find a few minutes for almost a week to post about our Labor day. last weekend was the usual ridiculous busy-busyness for us. Soccer game on Saturday morning. Church, family reunion and birthday party on Sunday. But miraculously, Monday, Labor day was free. I have no idea how, but I was really looking forward to having a day with my little family and no plans. I declared it "Fun Day Monday!" Unfortunately, the day started out kind of rough. Because of the whirlwind of activity all weekend, the house looked like a bomb went off in it. It was pretty bad. So, the husband, who cannot relax if the house is messy started to clean. Out of guilt, I felt compelled to join in too. Therefore, Fun Day Monday turned into a "Chorin' Mornin'" (I know that was a bit of a stretch, but bear with me please and thank you!) I will admit that I was starting to get a little bit cranky. Ok, perhaps more than a little bit. I may have been edging toward full blown evil, but I was very disappointed by the way that our relaxing day had taken a terrible turn for the worse. The husband, who has developed the ability to sense when I am edging toward the point of no return, recognized that the situation was barreling towards badness and he came up with a plan. This leads us to the fun part of the day...The Houghs go BOWLING! Greendale will never be the same!
My biggest blessings!
This picture makes me laugh every time. Look at how tan DJ is and how pale Coley is! Yep, they are twins!
Gia was celebrating a spare!
I am not sure what is going on with Noah here, but Hannah makes me smile.
Someone always has to be mad about something...always.
The husband and I. <3 p="">

Me and my big boys

We had so much fun. We split the kids up and Hannah down went on one lane (with bumpers) and Isaac up went on another lane (no bumpers). We weren't that good, but we had a blast. Aiden was the big winner out of all of us. That little bugger had 107. The rest of us....well, not so much. But we had a blast and there are not many things that the 11 of us can do for $30. The next thing that we did was my idea. We went to Frosty's and had ice cream for dinner. (I will do anything to get out of cooking and doing dishes!)
Yummo Frosty's! Snickerdoodle was the flavor of the week and the Houghs approved.
The bowling was fun. The ice cream was delicious, but the best part of the day was just being together. I know that sounds cheesy, but I mean it. The kids are getting older and are busy. They work and play sports and have homework and blah, blah, blah. It is becoming more and more infrequent for all of us to be together. To have all 9 kids with us and to be able to do something fun, like bowling and ice cream for dinner, was a rare treat. I am so glad that Fun Day Monday turned out to be just that.
