Hot dogs, Hamburgers and Company

It was Miss Priss's turn to choose the menu for Friday night. When I asked her what she wanted for supper, she replied, "Hot dogs, hamburgers, and company!" When she says company, she means her college boys!! So, we gathered a group of some of her favorite boys and had a good time. I had some steaks in the freezer so we added those to the menu as well. The kids (mine and the college) were so excited. While DH grilled, all the kids played outside and enjoyed each other.
Eric and Rachelle (the only college girl that came - bless her heart!)
and
Harvey, Ben (I use to babysit him!!) and Fergie
all enjoy the dinner entertainment
And this would have been the entertainment -
Little Man, Miss Priss and David Lee working on their Air Band skit
I have always had the philosophy "The more the merrier" when it comes to having our college kids over to eat - even on a budget. There have been many times I have looked at the table and thought, "We are not going to have enough food to eat but we will eat until it is gone." However, after a prayer of thanksgiving and seeing the kids have plates (yes, more than one) of food, we will still have leftovers - maybe not 12 baskets full, but some left. I choose to believe that this is God's way of telling me He can do great things with anything I bring to Him.

That's great that you have your college kids over! Wayne is the director of our church's college group! Our house is WAAAAY to small to entertain 50+ kids, but we like to get together with them as much as possible!
