Well, tonight was a fun one! We had a Maughan reunion! We haven't had an official one of those since grandpa's 80th birthday seven years ago!
My kids loved playing with all their cousins. Samantha picked right back up with her cousin Lea (who lives in Missouri) and made friends with a "new" cousin Hailey (also Missouri). She's gotten email addresses and regular snail mail addresses. She's actually pretty good at writing letters so I think this may be the beginning of a new pen pal (her & Lea hit it off last year and have written a few letters to each other since then).
In preparation for this reunion I was trying to figure out just how many Maughans there are now. If my numbers are correct we are currently sitting at about 92. Holy cow, that's a lot of Maughans! We had 55 of the 92 there tonight at some point in time!
Anthony/Jessica - Emma, Marianne, Clara, Lea, James, Benjamin
Jeff/Carrie - Kaitlyn, Rachel, Lexi
Angela/Dave - Jordan, Hailey, Megan, Addison, Ryan
Jeremy/Heidi - Jaxon, Croix, Knox
Justin/Andrea - Staten, Lincoln (new one coming in November)
Jesse/Jaymie - Henslee, Nixon
Misty/Travis - Samantha, Nash, Caleb, Brookelyn
Cassidy/Chad - Jade, Jack, Sunny
Nate/Amanda - Tayson
Lance/Stacey - Dillon, +1 (name is failing me!)
Brandon/Katie - Braxton (new one coming in November)
Corey/Rachel - Emory, +1 (name failing again), Fischer
Kellie/Andrian - Mahal, Dempsey
Luke/Kylee - Brody (new one coming in October)
I'm impressed - I'm only forgetting 2 names (confession - I had to check Jeff's blog for his girls' names ;) but that's still not bad!)
We even managed to get a few photos of the entire bunch, but I'm waiting to get them back from Kylee so that I am photo shopped into them!
