When I was young, my mom's side of the family used to have parties frequently. Between birthday parties for 30 people and holidays, we had parties about every two weeks. As us grandchildren got older and started having our own families, we started having fewer and fewer parties with the extended family. This year Grandma decided to get the whole family together for a party so on the 12th we had a "reunion." We all got together at my Uncle Daryl's house and had a party where we had dinner and just visited. It was so much fun to see all of my cousins again and catch up on what is going on in everyone's life. So what is this picture about? Well, at the end of the party we played a game where everyone that wanted to tied a saltine cracker around their waist and got a piece of newspaper to roll up. The goal of the game was to hit everyone else's cracker with your newspaper and break it off. The last person with a saltine still attached wins. Bauer got to play too. He would hit at crackers and laugh but if someone tried to hit his cracker, he would grab his cracker in his hand and yell at you "don't hit my c'acker!" Needless to say, everyone thought it was cute so they wouldn't hit his cracker and he won the game. The winner got a prize - a box of crackers. He took his crackers around and offered them to everyone and then posed for his pictures. What a cute little stinker!
