Family reunions

My house is about to become hotel central. Yes their is going to be 15 kids and 11 adults all under one roof. We are going to have our first annual family reunion. A lot of the aunts and uncles have never even seen my kids and my husband and I have not seen all of their kids. It is going to be one big slumber party. If you have any suggestions please send them my way. This is the first time I have never hosted something this big. We are all so excited to be able to do this and to be able to see my husband's sisters and nieces and nephews.
My husband has four sisters and I find it sad that they are not closer but with kids and expenses it has taken a long time to be able to do this. My biggest concern is how do you all take showers we have two showers and two bathrooms. Scary if you ask me that is a lot of showers How do you cook for that many people. So please keep us in your prayers and if you have any suggestions please let me know.

Oh, how fun! I love large family gatherings - as long as I remember to let a certain sister's comments to go in one ear and out the other! ;)
When most of us gather at my sister's house, some take showers in the evening, and some in the morning, the toddlers tend to share a bathtub.
In the kitchen, if help is offered, Take it! And don't be afraid to ask for help, just because it's your house, doesn't mean you should have to do all the work. Breakfast tends to be ate in shifts at our gatherings, some sleep alot later than others, plus it's just hard to keep enough bacon & eggs warm enough for everyone to eat at once. For lunches, we'd put out a "buffet" of sandwich fixings, dinners would be briskets, casseroles, spaghetti, or take out.
Relax and enjoy your time with everyone!
