But really, I was mostly about the cards. We are staying the night at my in-law's house tonight. They are in Las Vegas on vacation right now. With their permission, we invited our friends, CP and MP over for the games that were going on today. CP had spent much of this weekend at his mom's house, making deer sausage with his younger brother. Apparently his brother is a hunter and had a deer or two ready to be "done up" Blech! Sounds absolutely terrible to me, but oh well. After they were done with that, they joined us at the inlaw's house.
We snacked (ALOT!) and played cards (Pitch anyone? How about Phase 10?) But the games took F.O.R.E.V.E.R. to play because, well, there was a "more important" game going on. This one:
So most of our card game ended up looking like this:
At the end of the night, though, I was able to at least snap a pic of the two of them together. This was the better one of the two that I took really quick before they put on their jackets and ventured out into the cold, snowy night.
Aren't they a cute couple? We just love them! And as Girlie said tonight, "This is our family...Mommy, and Me and CP and MP, and Daddy and Boy A and Boy B and Boy C. That's our family." Of course, her version comes out as "fabbily" but her sentiment is right on. CP and MP are some of those friends that are so close, that we think of them like family. When we have a family event, with just us and our kids, CP and MP are ALWAYS invited to join us. Because they have been a part of "family" before they were a family themselves. And we love 'em both!
