MOVE OVER...

I just spent 7 days at my parents house with a constant 27 people and up to as many as 42 people. Several years ago when I couldn't get down on the ground (or back up for that matter) I quit sleeping in a tent and started staying at the local motel. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. I just count it as vacation expenses.

There were 27 in the house and the little one said, "I'm crowded, move over."
So they all moved over and one got up...
There were 26 in the house and the grandma said, "I'm going to tell a story, move over"
So they all moved over and one went to his tent...
There were 25 in the house and the fishermen said, "We're tired, move over"
So they all moved over and 7 went to Panguitch...
There were 18 in the house and the twins said, "We're bored, move over"
So they all moved over and 2 went to play...
There were 16 in the house and the sisters said, "We're old and tired, move over"
So they all moved over and 9 teenagers went to the park...
There were 7 in the house and the uncles said, "We're busy, move over"
So they all moved over and 4 boys went on a hike...
There were 3 in the house and the grandpa said, "I'm grouchy, move over"
So they all moved over and 2 got mad and left...
And grandpa just sat and smiled...

I haven't been in forever but that description sounds exactly like what I remember...

You forgot the part where,
"Then the 25 came back with their 10 new friends and started all over again." :o) Good stuff Sis! I agree with Lindsay-Weaver, more truth than fiction.

Maybe I should have added another line: (which will only make sense to those of us there)

"But the 26 came back
the very next day....."

You forgot the part about the ornery Aunt who was tired of sleeping on the ground, so kicked everyone out of the couch bed. ;)

LOL that cracked me up - I never thought of it but maybe that IS the reason grandpa is grouchy, so everyone will leave LOL j/k :)

He's grouchy because he doesn't get to watch all of his favorite shows. He's kind of a couch potato. lol

A new family classic. I wonder if we could put it to music.
