Hi everyone it's Adam. First off I love the whole idea of a reuninon so I am willing to do what ever is needed to get this done. The friends that cooked at my wedding are the frends I had in mind. They didn't charge for their labor only the materials, but I wouldn't ask them to do that for this. Keep in mind that I had all the turkey meat donated from another friend and my wedding was over three years ago and the price of food has gone up. After saying that I fed over 500 people for less that 500 dollars. For those of you in washington thats a dollar a person :) Now that is just the cost of the rice, green beans, rolls, salad, and fruit salad. I have helped these same friends with other weddings and catering jobs. The trick is to have the food done before the party starts. The way that this is accomplished is a simple menu and preperation. For instance Alex and I have talked about deep pitting a pig. Not a bad idea. I bought a hog for a friends family today. The price was $1.00 a pound. 200 pound pig, $200.00. A friend has a special bbq to rotiserie a whole pig and a technique to cook chicken inside it at the same time. A pig that size would feed about 200 people and take 3 hours to cook. The up side is that to prep it would only take half an hour, after that it would be just adding charcoal. What I am getting at is I have access to all of my friends equipment and the gun clubs equipment, it would just be replacing them with us. I will still ask what thier cost would be and let you guys know. When I was shopping for my wedding caterers I found a Mexican outfit that was $5.00 for a plate of rice, beans, chile verde and tortillas. I like the idea of Deya handling the money. If I were to cook I would buy all the stuff before and then send my receipts to Daya to be reviewed and payed back. In closing I don't want to sound like I want to take charge of anything, just want to help out. I feel kind of guilty that I haven't been to washington since Oscar's wedding and am willing to go the extra mile to make that up. Also e-mails can sound kind of cold sometimes and if any body wants to call me they can 559-908-9838 thanks

Also, once we set the date a flyer will be sent to everyones home were hoping by mid or end of December. Very important we will need everyone to rsvp by email or phone to myself or Yvonne. Phone numbers and emails I will post later. Then once the rsvp's start rolling in and we have an idea of whos coming and whos not we will set a deadline as to when your money has to be paid by. All that will follow later so keep on checking the blog for important news.
Any other ideas and input is welcome. It did really help though being together and talking about it. So consider us The Garza reunion committe if you guys have any questionsor would like to be part of the committe let one of us know. Lets make this happen. When I talked to Grandma this weekend I felt that she feels like its a big big challange and hopes we can pull it of. I told her she just needs to stay healthy and that it is going to happen. So lets all pray for her and keep her strong and healthy for the Reunion and many more years to come. Alright until next time its past my bed time.
Alex came up with some games. Here are some clips of the them, I hope you like them.
For this game there was a pie pan full of flour and a piece of bubble gum hidden in there. The players could only use there mouths!! At the end of this game Esther does make a bubble and wins! Watch Cindy next to Esther she puts her whole face in the pan!!
This was Musical Oatmeal! You can either pie yourself to stay in the game or pie some one else and your out!! Poor Kique got pied twice by Karissa and then Larry!! Joey was pied my Mandy his mom! This is just a clip of the game when it was already the end.

Name Game Tag... if someone "tags" you, you are it.
For the first round, we will start with Children & Grandchildren.
Once everyone has been named, we will move on to Great and Great-Great Grandchildren.
Here are the Rules:
1. You can ask someone to name anyone in the family (max 5).
Example: " Name family members who live in Parlier" or " Name three of Tio Paul's children.
2. So, yes, this might be easier at first... until we get down to the great and great-great...
3. I will be placing a list off to the side once the name has been used. Once a Name is listed either in a question or anwer, it is out of play
4. Once a Name is listed in either a question or anwer, it is out of play
5. Make sure the person you are 'tagging" knows...if they are a member or you have their email... or even if you have direct contact with them, I think it will be fun!!!
Let's Start ...
Name Five Children of Tio Char and Tia Aurora

Grandma Casamira is now 96 years old and has a family of 208 (anyone know exactly?) It is time to celebrate.
Join us on this site to get info and share with others.
So What has been talked about?
1. July 2009 looks like the best time to plan, vote for the best weekend possible on the left hand side.
2. Adam has access to the Gun Club in Kingsburg, which will be a large enough place to hold us all. The cost of this is $150.00 a day... does this sound like a possibility?
3. BBQ, Potluck or Catered? Vote for this one too!
4. Traveling plans: Since this will mostly affect the family in Washington and Texas/Mexico we need to know who is willing to open up your home for people to stay.
So far: Alex, Yvonne, D'andra have offered their house for anyone to stay.
Let us know what you think.
All Family Members are welcome to post comments, information and pictures. Join us!
