mega family VBS

It is VBS week in our neck of the world and some of our best friends are here to spend it with us. My friend and her 6 kids are here for the week bringing our household total to 12 kids and 3 adults, 2 dogs and 10 cats (okay the dogs and cats don't live in the house). They arrived last night and here's our tally of happenings in the first 24 hours.

8 litres of milk (it's being rationed or it would have been waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more)
3 loaves of bread
1 box of spaghetti
3 lbs of hamburger
16 corn dogs eaten
2 bags of chips
a lot of cold cuts
a lot of cereal

5 skinned knees
2 skinned elbows
3 skinned palms
6 missing children
6 baths
2 loads of laundry
1 monster thunder storm

I'd say we're doing pretty well!

I love to ponder all that gets consumed with kids....that's a funny list! i had to laugh at the 6 missing children.....cause it didnt' say they were found. LOL

My 3 kids can polish a box of cereal in one day (if I let them)

we go through about 2-3 litres a day of milk. We buy those bags of bowties and we cook that for one meal. (we have enough for lunch the next day)

I can't even imagine what it will be like when they are all teens! My dad had 2 brothers and between the 3 boys they would drink a 4 litre of milk at supper, have 3 burgers each that's 9 burgers!! He has stories that he's not afraid to tell OVER AND OVER AND OVER>.....
