Feast and Fellowship

Last Sunday we went to Mike's Uncle Frank and Aunt Peg's house for Easter luncheon.

The grilled chicken and ribs were prepared by Mike's cousin, Jacky

and the side dishes were stirred up by my mother-in-law and Aunt Peg.

Uncle Frank had some help from Mike's cousin's husband, Mark, at pouring up some sweet iced tea for folks.

Some of us brought some sweet treats.  My contribution was a Carrot Cake and Easter Egg Fruit Salad.

I know my sister-in-law, JoAnn, brought a cake and Bridgette brought brownies and cream cheese squares, too, because I tasted a wee bit of those!

Long story made shorter - we had a feast and it was delish!

It was a pretty typical southern family affair.

Jacky was slicing up the meat and his grands and daughter had to come check out his work.

The young folks learning from their elders, you know.

The women folk, like my mother-in-law, covering up the tables with a pretty cloth...

Mallorie following suit.  Again, the youngsters learning from their elders...

There was lots of visiting...

...baby holding...

...chatting with one another...

...more baby holding...

...swapping lies and such...

...even more baby holding...

...tall tale telling...

...a little more baby holding...

...plenty of fussing with the food to get the table just right...

...a little extra baby holding...

...a bit of gossiping...

...some more of that baby holding...

...some catching up...

...some extra baby holding...

...some sun shaded conversations mingled with baby holding...

Then, the children started getting a little restless and ready to chow down...children of all sizes...

So, everybody was called to the table...

...after just a little bit more adjusting...

...the blessing was asked...

...and the spread was enjoyed!

I think there was no doubt that we all enjoyed the afternoon sipping,

and eating till we just couldn't hold anymore food...

A good time was had by all...

...especially the babies and the folks who did all that holding!
Hope your Easter feast and fellowship was as full as ours!
