so we've kind of accidentally inadvertently but also really happily started a yearly mccoy tradition of hosting march madness. anyone who knows a mccoy (ok let's be honest - a natural-born mccoy) also knows that this is a B-A-S-K-E-T-B-A-L-L family and march is the month of all months. so is being with family and eating lots of food. and this year had an extra bonus - mom and dad mccoy had just recently gotten home from their mission - so 36 of the 44 mccoy family members (including all the natural-borns) made it to town for a spontaneous march madness PLUS family reunion weekend. and just when you thought the madness weekend could not get any madder,
it gone done did get madder still. until only madness prevailed.
sadly i was horrible at taking pictures through out the weekend
but luckily when erin requested a recent picture of our family
and i replied that a recent picture of our family simply does not exist
she took one
and now one exists
it was extra magical that the newest member of the mccoy family - sweet sophie - received her baby blessing while we were all together.
and if you'll bare with me for a moment of blogging tenderness, it really was a sweet experience for all of us and i'm humbled and grateful it happened in my home
on another note, this also happened
