It’s that time of year again. The most wonderful time of the year.
It’s the housewife’s favorite holiday. Seriously I LOVE CHRISTMAS.
The food, the booze, the lights, Family and friends getting together, the ugly sweaters, the parties, and the gifts.
The tree trimming is done. The presents all wrapped with care. The food shopping is complete, and the booze is chilling. The kids are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa, and I just can’t wait to give everyone their stuff! (I love giving gifts!)
This year, as with every other year, mine and the hubs families will gather at our house Christmas night to exchange gifts, drink, play games, watch movies, eat a shit of food, and be merry. This year is super duper special though.
Why is that?
For a few reasons.
Number one being this is the FIRST year that we’ll have our ENTIRE family together. That’s right. EVERYONE will be together this year!
All 20 of us!
20 you say? Yes, 20. There are 20 people in my immediate family.
My parents, ALL OF MY SIBLINGS!!! All 3 of my brothers are coming to dinner. Their significant others, their kids, my in-laws, the brother-in-law, and his gf. I can’t even begin to tell you how freaking excited I am to have a house full of family. Every year one or two people don’t make it. This year…IT’S EVERYBODY!
And there’s an extra special guest coming. The tiniest of them all. My newest nephew. Yes, the most adorable little Rylie.
This is my favorite time of year.
So from my family to yours,
