First Monthly Supper Club

So I had previously mentioned the McCartys and Friends were rapidly expanding in number. Dining out has been a favorite way to spend friday evenings, but is becoming increasingly difficult due to our large ( & growing larger) number. Who wants to wait 1 hour for a table for 8 adults, 1 teenager, 1 toddler, 2 babies & we have 2 more babies on the way??!! Our solution...Friday Night Supper Club. Once a month we'll rotate homes and menu responsiblities to allow for fun fellowship and a kid friendly environment. I'll admit, the McCarty house has not always been the most kid friendly home since Spencer has long outgrown kid toys and Ruth Ann has yet to receive any toys...but we're hoping to be a more kid friendly home in the months to come.

Here are the hostesses (Me, Auralee, Sally & Brantley). The first supper club met at Chez McCarty and I think it was a lot of fun. On the menu...chicken or shark (previous photographed with Spencer), squash casserole, extra fluffy potatoes, salad and various desserts including banana pudding, strawberry cake and chocolate cake. Are all your mouths watering or what?!

In cleaning out the closets in Ruth Ann's room I found a box of some of Spencer's old toys. Jay (Sally's oldest child) put on a head lamp he found in the box. We thought he looked like he was either ready to enter the coal mines or the operating room. Spencer added the clip on he's definitly a doctor in the making! Although I would not like to see my doctor enter the OR with a sword in his hand!

Here's Mason (he belongs to Brantley) checking out the surround sound speakers by the TV. Mason is very quick on all 4s and he's pulling up on anything that will stay stationary. He'll be walking any day now.
