They Come, They Eat, They Leave….

I’m preparing to host 23 of Mr. Chili’s family (which, if we’re being honest, is pretty much the entire party) for a cook out this afternoon (and, if we’re being honest, it’s really more like 22 because one of them is an infant).

Thank GOD the weather is cooperating!

I THINK I’ve got everything I need and, if I don’t, there’s a grocery store a minute and a half away.

Wish me luck!

    The new furniture looks fantastic! Good luck! But you don’t need luck. It sounds like a group that would have a great time with anything! 🙂

  2. The deck furniture looks so good. You made a great choice. Where are the other 13 going to sit. Hey, you could do a reinactment of the Last Supper.

  4. Kwizgiver and Glen, thanks – it IS pretty, isn’t it? Glen, what wasn’t in the frame were the bunch of chairs we set out and the traditional table-and-benches picnic table that Mr. Chili and Bart brought home and assembled last week.

    Falcon, I was REALLY hoping someone would catch the reference! Thanks.

    I’m happy to report that, with only a few minor and easily dismissible incidents, the day went off exceedingly well! Phew!

    Glad I could help, Mrs. C. One of my favorite Pixar films, right there.

    So, um, which one of Mr. Chili’s side of the family would be Hopper? 😉
