On any given Sunday...

...you'll find all nine of us here.

At my parents house...doing nothing expect soaking up each others company. It's just an ordinary Sunday, no special celebrations...
Devouring every single bite of our Mom's scrumptious Sunday roasts...is there anything better than your Mom's cooking?
Being allowed to eat pudding in Granny and Grandpa's bed...
Listening to the constant bickering between opposing football teams...
Feeding the fish, for the hundredth time...and getting to play with Grandpa's train set....
And of course getting caught red-handed....
And the best of all...lots and lots of cuddles and stolen kisses, from these two...
Just an ordinary Sunday...with a few extra-ordinary people.

Life is good.

Sounds so relaxing and quiet possibly one of the best ways to spend a Sunday.That train set looks way too fun!

Hayley, this sounds like bliss and if I ever had a lunch like that, I'd consider it Christmas.

We don't do Sunday lunch, my family is in PE (who do!) and D's mom doesn't like cooking or having people over.

Could not think of a better way to spend a Sunday other than with close friends and family. The best.

Such a wonderful post...it makes one realize how important it is to having them close, especially since we lost my MIL in Dec 2010, such a huge whole there...

Grateful to have mine close too...
