Sibstravaganza

Saturday was our sibling party. All six of the Lingle clan, along with spouses and better halves, got together for games, food and fun. No parents or little children allowed!
Here's where things started to get a little crazy.
We thought we'd try out an old family tradition. It's something we like to call The Lingle Pile. We all lay on top of each other, from oldest to youngest. Keep in mind, this began when Garrett, the youngest, was probably around four or so. So it's definitely gotten harder over the years. Poor Steve. And obviously, I was not able to participate as usual, due to my delicate condition, so I just stuck my head in between Brandon and Ryan. :o)
Then I had the idea to try a Lingle Totem Pole! This was a little easier.
I think we all had a great time. We chose to do our Christmas gift exchange also, since we all won't be together for Christmas.
The plans for our trip were supposed to be that Chris drove home Sunday and I stayed in Florida with his parents until Thursday. Unfortunately, due to some unusual, and pretty painful back issues I was having on Sunday morning, we decided that I should be home with Chris and near my doctor. So we're back home now, and we're thankful that we could spend time with our families.
Now it's time to decorate for Christmas!!

Happy happy!
I love how you attributed the authority of the term "Sibstravaganza" to me, the man who first penned it.
Oh wait, you didn't. Scratch that.
That night was so much fun! And laughter! And puppies! No puppies.
