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.

More pictures, and lots of pasta (posted by Ann)

Doesn't he look happy?

Tomorrow is the pasta gig. I have four pans of lasagna, which are supposed to serve 12 but will probably serve 8 teenagers. I have meat sauce made that I will mix with four boxes of penne pasta. Each box serves 8, so count it as 6 teenager servings. I have four bags of cheese tortellini to cook with marinara sauce, and each of those says it serves 7 so maybe 5 teenagers. I'm also making a batch of pasta primavera, mostly because I want to watch the teenage boys avoid all vegetables. Steve tried the recipe this week, and really liked it, so I know he'll eat it but I wonder about all the rest.

That adds up to pasta for 76 teenagers, not counting the primavera. Whew.
I have other Moms coming with salad, bread, dessert, drinks, paper plates, plastic forks, and napkins.
I have a Dad coming to do traffic control.

I have taken everything breakable and moveable off the ground floor.

All that's left to do is brace myself.
