Packed our house today with 8 adults and 16 kids, 13 of which were boys.
This epic all-day game day was planned by my husband.
I let him plan it 100%.
This is hard for me, as I'm maybe a bit of a control freak.
Last night I had a freak out when I heard that it was supposed to rain.
Game day happened today and I'd do it all over again.
The sun came out.
The kids played so well.
It didn't feel like we had 16 kids here.
I love our friends.
I'm so thankful for them.
I even played a few rounds of Skip-Bo with another Mom.
Even Moms like to play games.
Lembas bread is a Lord of the Rings thing.
I didn't know that.
Apparently it's a hit when you make this for a guys game of Lord of the Rings Risk.
If you want to make some yourself, the recipe is here.
And really, you should make some.
It's quite delicious and it makes Lord of the Rings fans smile.
Lesson Learned: Hospitality has nothing to do with the size of your house.
Second Lesson Learned: It's good to let your husband plan something 100% sometimes.
