Fun Saturday!

After a good night's sleep, we had some fruit and got ready to go to the Hosler Family Christmas breakfast buffet at the Ephrata Church of the Brethren.  Phil, Ken youngest brother, and his family were in charge this year and they did an amazing job!

It was so exciting that 40 of us were there, only 3 people were unable to attend.  !

This is the Hosler Clan!

All the Hosler cousins!

The food was delicious and Sherry had some games for both the adults and the younger ones.  They were hilarious and so much fun.

The young ones appear to be listening well! 

Adults turn to play games!

We were in teams and had to hold a potato
between our legs and then drop it
into the bucket.  Looked ridicules!
 Just a few photos Ken took throughout the time we were together -

Some of the 2nd cousins!

The oldest 2nd cousins!

Little Henry!

It will be 50 years since the death of Ken's fathers death (actually in 2018) so all Ken and his siblings brought photos and diaries, etc. regarding their father and mother.  There was only 1 grandchild born before he died and Greg was a newborn, so we thought they might find the info interesting.  I was amazed at how attentive even the young ones were while Ken and his brothers and sister reflected on their father.  Also, exactly 9 years ago today, Ken's mother died.  We only left the church at 2 after a wonderful time of sharing and just being together as a family!

We drove back home where we relaxed until leaving at 5:15 to meet our couples card club for dinner and then card playing at Kreiders.  It was so good to see all of them again and it was a fun evening of chatting and playing cards.  We only got home around 11:45 and it was time for some "shut eye"!  What a great day!
