Wii Heart Paris...Kalamazoo

The sister girls know how to get together. What I always know best about our family gatherings, is that it will involve lots of amazing food, a fair amount of alcohol and a really great time of sharing, laughing and having fun. I'm lucky that way.

First, lets look at the oh so wonderful food provided to us by Big and Red (who, if you put them together, you get a stick of gum).

The spread Friday night. The Gnocchi Big made was Fabo!

Breakfast was yummy, fresh and full of pretty color. Just look. I'm getting Big to give us the recipes so we can post them.

Dinner on Saturday was lovely steak and fries.

And, my favorite, the chocolate spread. Brownies, ice cream, truffles, Dove candy and thick, rich chocolate cake.
And check out this great drink set up at Sister Redd's house. Stoli Vanilla Vodka and Diet Coke is one beverage of choice. There were many beverages of choice that night.
So many in fact that one unidentified sister challenged me to a race while discussing whether or not she'd be able to play soccer or kick ball in her...slightly compromised state.

We sucked on Candy Cigarettes and passed around..a candy cigarette. Really, that's what it is.

A Happy Mary Elephant

A Happy Aquanetta

A Happy Big Mama

And of course we know how to unwind. We spent a good part of Saturday lounging at a spa, getting massages, facials, pedicures and manicures and taking a shower in a shower with 7 shower heads. HEAVEN. Then, of course, they provided us with lunch. Pampering is a MUST when you're a woman in the Sister family.
Here we all are smiling happily at the Spa. Unfortunately we were missing Sunshine and 7, since they live much further away :( but we were sure to call them throughout the fun so they could hear what they were missing.

And now for more fun! Sister Redd has a Wii and here you see Sister Big and Sister Honey Bunch boxing each other.

Sassy and Mary Elephant Boxing.
Here I am rocking out with Guitar Hero. Barracuda was a kick ass song! Mary Elephant was the Bassist and I was Lead Guitar and we managed to actually play the whole song without getting booed off the stage. We're Rock Stars!

And of course, we blogged. We wanted as many of you as possible to experience the fun of the Sisters as if you were there.

We're lucky to have each other and I don't know what I'd do without my sisters. They're there to help clean my messy house when I'm overwhelmed with two kids, to advice H.B. when she needs advising, and to have amazing parties to take the sting out of turning 30, 40, and now 50! They are amazing and I love them all.

Oh my gosh....what a great time this looks to have been!! Loved reading all about it....with the pictures and the text, it's like reading People magazine! And I know at least Sister HB is hooked on that mag like I am! Keep up the good work! :)

I love Wii boxing. :) Me and my sister played it once and I bet her then she bet me, so we are even. Y'all look like you had a great time. :)

I love our Wii! I actually ended up with Wii-itis though from playing too much tennis. I could hardly move my one arm it was so sore.

I can't get into the boxing, but am a demon at bowling. Its funny I was a ball lofter when I did real-life bowling and am still a ball lofter. Looks like you had fun.

Can I be a SISTER?! So jealous right now!

I think it's great how close you all are and that you blog together. My sisters don't know mine exists! There are still a lot that we don't share I guess. Maybe we'll be as cool as Sassy and HB someday!

It's great to see how much fun you all had. It was a vicarious good time!

Jen said...

I only have one sister, and we're best friends. I can't imagine having more--you all are so lucky!!

Jane the Sane said...

Looks like a great time. I am jealous. My sisters are far away.
