Tom's Quiet Birthday Dinner

For everyone who read this blog post in January, From Quiet Dinner to Huge Celebration I thought I'd post a few pictures.

This is how we solved the issue of kids asking for new cups every time they forget where they put the last one down.

I had my camera set on sport action speed here. Didn't make much difference.

We're a clan of 46. Thirty of us were able to show up on less than a week's notice. I'm really not sure where we would have put the other 16. But we'd have found a way.

Deborah,
You have a beautiful family. Glad you were able to fit them all in.

Such a heartwarming post - families - gotta love them! menehune

Wow, what a clan! Love the photo of the kids. :)

Barb Cabot:

Wow that's incredible that so many were able to come in such short notice. Doesn't that speak volumes about the love of family! What a great celebration.

WOW those stairs hold a bundle. Great photos

sheri:

Kudos to you for being able to organize and host this gathering on suchshort notice.Though sometimes they are the best parties.

Wow! that is a huge family. What a wonderful celebration.

Eden:

WOW, a great looking and happy family for sure!

WOW - I don't know how you managed with 30! Great fun!

Anne:

Funny about the kids moving too fast even for sports setting! I'm sure everyone had a blast. What a great photo of everyone on the steps. I must admit I'm kind of reeling at the thought of such a large clan! I grew with my mom and my sister, with occasional gatherings at my grandparents thrown in. But even then, our clan wouldn't have hit 20, let alone 46. What fun that must be!!

Great photo of your gathering! Love that so many of your family members were able to attend. I do the same thing in my class when we are low on paper cups (writing their names or initials so they can use the cups for breakfast and lunch).
