Soups On . . .

 Family Soup Day/Night
our tradition for twenty years or more
red chili, white chili, dips and things
pumpkin bars, football
visits and chats
treats no tricks

planning on feeding a bunch 
starts way before the actual day
(I am sure you already know that information.)
lists, planning, purchasing, cooking, baking
and then the event 

why Halloween you might ask
as our family grew, marriages happened
it became more difficult to coordinate around 
the new families 
wanting our tribe on 
Thanksgiving and Christmas 
we chose Halloween
and it has become quite the event.

must admit
yet so so happy 
to have my bunch home
15 plus 2 dogs  
‘til next time
happy november
