It's simple really: all you have to do is have a family of 7 people spend the weekend with you; and after a couple days of the house being FULL of laughter and noise and bodies and activity with all 15 of you there, by Monday when your friends drive away, a house of only 8 people will indeed feel empty!
The friends who were here have been featured on the blog before, so if you've read for a while, they might look familiar. I'm so grateful that they continue to make the trek here from their home in North Carolina to spend time with us!! :)
I wasn't very systematic with my picture-taking during this visit; and of course, it wasn't until it was too late that I thought how nice it would have been to have gotten a group photo of all of us. Maybe the next time they come, I'll remember in time? :)
Regardless, here are a few random shots of some of the fun we had together this past weekend. :)
As soon as they got here, a light saber fight was organized.
Eight people are not as many as I thought they were. ;-)
