We decided at the last minute to take advantage of the beautiful weather and drive the 3 hours to my sister’s house Friday night for a little pre-New Year’s fun.
She let the rest of the family know that we were coming and before the night was over my parents and all of my siblings had arrived for an impromptu party!
Not only was impromptu – it was short. We had just 24 hours together.
Do you have any idea how much fun a bunch of cousins can cram into 24 hours? Especially when they don’t sleep?
They played hilarious games, did some wild singing, and laughed at all their inside jokes.
Then there was the great deer head adventure. One of the uncles had hit a deer with his van and it was still laying in the ditch. The kids decided to go and rescue the antlers for him. The only problem was – they couldn’t get the antlers off.
I know he appreciated it!
They had a midnight toast with homemade ice cream, ate cold pizza at 2 AM and consumed lots of Christmas goodies between times.
Now that was 24 hours of fun and excitement!
