cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

I survived (posted by Ann)

I ought to at least get a t-shirt.

When I looked back at the amount of pasta I said I was going to cook, I laughed. Steve reminded me that they had run out of pasta at several previous parties, so I made a few adjustments. I doubled the penne pasta with meat sauce, doubled the tortellini, doubled the pasta primavera, and bought extra as reserve.

The grand total was 4 pans of lasagna, 12 lbs. of penne with various sauces, and 10 lbs. of cheese tortellini with marinara sauce. It's all gone. No leftovers.

I think this picture will tell you why. I don't know how you could get that much pasta on one plate, much less into that skinny body. And he came back for seconds - they all did!

Here's what they all looked like stuffed into the basement.

And the foyer, with all those shoes and book bags. This is only part of it, the pile spread into the living room and down the hall. It was truly impressive - at one point it was totally covered, there was no floor showing at all.

Then on Saturday we went to the Palatine Invite, so today is a recovery day, which means I'm doing as little as possible other than putting my house back together, grocery shopping, and all the normal weekend stuff.

It was fun, but I'm really glad it's behind me!
