Mrs Easto just informed me that not only are we having the usual 10 kids and grandkids... several of them are bringing girlfriends, boyfriends, parents and brothers. By my latest count it should be 16 or 17 people. I am not looking forward to this. I also like to have our meal around 1 or 2 in the afternoon but it looks like it's going to be in the early evening. This means the crowd will be here half the night. Pray for me, LOL.

The 1 shining light is that her daughter is bringing the Turkey and her son is bringing several side dishes. This should really help with the mess here. We've also elected to use paper plates and disposable utensils for everyone except for the 6 adults sitting at the main table.
