friends

There was a time when we got together every month. Pretty much without fail. Now, life gets in the way all too often. Sometimes its months between times we're all together. This time, the Clavells & Thompsons hadn't seen each other since before Christmas! That's crazy!

When we first started "game night" it was just us and the Thompsons who, at the time were Kevin, Pam & Destiny. Shortly thereafter the Clavells started joining us. At the time, it was just Michael, Lisa & Victoria who was 4 months old. That was December 2002. Fast forward 7.5 years. Now Jboy has joined our family and is 3.5 years old! The Thompsons are now Kevin, Pam, Destiny {13!} and Ethan {3} and the Clavell brood has expanded to Michael, Lisa, Victoria {7}, Regan {4} and Elizabeth {will be 3 on 6.22}.

Needless to say, game nights have become louder & more chaotic. But, at the same time, more wonderful. I love that our kids are so close in age & play together well {mostly, LOL}. I hope that in 30 years, our kids will be having a "game night" of their own with our grandkids running around.

All that to say... Saturday we were able to get everone under one roof {and in one backyard} for the first time since before Christmas. Haley & her friend, Will were able to join us too. A great time was had by everyone.

Sadly, I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I should could have, but here are a few of my favorites... and they're not even of my kid!


I love the action in this one! Miss Regan running like a true athlete!

Sweet Elizabeth.

There's the Elizabeth we know & love! Super sweet & such a ham!

And... because I'd probably be disowned if I posted pictures of other people's kids without at least one of Jboy... here's a little slideshow of the few that I did manage to get of him. Enjoy!

Awww, man! Love those pictures....and it's scary to see Elizabeth in that bathing suit. Regan used to wear it....Elizabeth is still a baby! Surely, she can't already be wearing it!

Great pictures Mist, and it is nice to see Reagan and Elizabeth too! They are all growing up to fast for my liking. Loved the slide show of Jboy, he sure doesn't look like a little toddler anymore.
