Not-so-Newlywed game?

I think a Newlywed type game would be fun to play with just the adults (after kids are put to bed). How many of you know you spouses favorite dessert or whatever? - Jen

Family Reunion News

This is very exciting stuff, so get out your calendar and mark the dates of the Rockin' DeLong Family Reunion! Most of you know the dates, but the actual reunion starts on Wed. (I think it's the 6th of August) and ends Saturday morning. It's going to be so much fun. As I have self appointed myself as "Reunion Director", I have been planning very fun stuff for the reunion. I want to make you all aware of what you need to prepare for this big event. Here is an over-view of the events happening.......
Beach Kickball (there will be two teams, with team leaders being Gary and Sam: Blue vs. Orange)
Crafts/Activities with Casey and Melissa (mostly for the kids, but adults are more than welcome)
The Family Talent Show (each family will have 5 minutes to do whatever they would like; sing, dance, a skit, magic show, etc. Please do not exceed your 5 minutes)
Family Pictures (we will be having a poll about the attire for this event)
Beach Olympics
A game called "Guess that Ancestor"
Bingo Night (this will be super fun and we will have prizes)
Sandcastle building contest (this can be done with teams or individually)
Brother's golf in the morning
The Famiy Video (Melissa is doing this, she will let you know about pictures)
As you can see I have a lot planned. If you have any ideas, please let me know (by the way this is Renee). I am super excited for this reunion. I keep you all posted on what is to come. Also, please vote on what attire should be worn for the family pictures. Thanks

So this isn't the best layout I could have chosen, but oh well - I've never claimed to be a professional blogger. These pictures were just taken yesterday and I love how Sammy looks. The big one captures his cute personality so well (not to mention his bright blue eyes). He is starting to finally realize that he has control of his hands and has even figured out how to suck his thumb when he's not sleeping, although since he lacks complete control it comes out seconds later and he gets mad until he finds it again.

My Blogging days have begun.

This is my (Jen's) first time really blogging. Oh how cool am I? Apparently this is the Hammond's month to blog. I have very limited time to devote to this, but in the name of cooperation, I will too blog. Question: Is there spell-check? You all know how gifted I am at spelling. :)
