Fifth Sunday Dinner

Whenever there is a fifth Sunday in the month, my dad hosts a family dinner. We weren't a very large crowd today but the food was yummy and we had a great time anyway.

Named my children.

I love the Fifth Sunday idea -- great that everyone knows in advance to plan. Hmmm.... have to think of some ideas. Everyone looks great - especially that agile fellow in his prime.

Keri said...

I find it humorous that debbie yelled at you all in caps then signed her name in lowercase. :-)

I like the fifth friday idea. Nice way to get the gang together without holiday stress.

Brenda said...

How fun and a great idea. Lovely family you have. Piper is such a cutie as well as your other grandchild.
So what do the initials stand for?

Of course I ran to my calendar to find all of the 5 Sunday Months -- so your Dad is hosting dinner in May and November...I wish I could say to set an extra place for me - your family looks like a lot of fun.

Debbie - - - the reason the baldness comes through the MOTHER is because that particular gene is located on the "X" chromosome, on the leg that there isn't a matching gene on the "Y", so all a male needs to get is ONE gene on the ONE "X" from his mama and he's bald.

Groovy - - - Shhhhhhh, I don't think Debbie knows about the all caps being yelling thing - - - she posts all her blogs that way too. Fifth Fridays would be nice, but we do Sundays ;-)

Brenda - - G is Gregory and J is Johnathan.

Kirby, I'm sure you'd be MORE than welcome at ANY of our dinners!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Love the name Piper. Love, love, LOVE! :-) And I love that you all do 5th Sundays together...How great is that?!

Keetha said...

Laura - - - THANKS for loving Piper's name. Her whole name is Piper Renae. The 5th Sunday dinner was my dad's idea.

JudyBug said...

What a neat idea. We have a 5th Sunday Singing at church and local churches get together. I love your dad's idea. What a wonderful family!

I did go sit in my car outside of the library just to check mail and get a quick puter fix! I'm back!

Keetha said...

JudyBug, I KNOW you are glad to get your computer up and running again!!! Whew - - - no more quick trips to McD's parking lot or the library or wherever just to get that cyber fix!!!!

Keetha said...

LOL Leigh - - - you posted it ABOVE on the next post. No problem, I figured it all out and this way you had to leave me TWO comments instead of just one - - - more JOY for me!!!
