Well, I have survived the family Christmas party.

Every year my siblings and I, along with my mom, her other half and all our kids get together at my mom's house for Christmas Eve. If we are all around at the same time, we're talking about 20-25 people (if you count spouses and boyfriend/girlfriends) all in one house, ages ranging in the anonymous age of my mom to the youngest this year, who I think is 3 maybe 4. It's hard to keep up sometimes. I just know I'm glad that I don't have a three year old. HA! (sorry Tim, but better you than me. How old are you going to be when he graduates high school? lol...)

Anyway, this year it was most of us. One of my brothers is in Minnesota. He called though, and we started the two hour game of passing the phone around while we ate, laughed, played pool and made fun of each other, which is in our nature. And I think one of my nephews is in Egypt, not sure on that one though. Another nephew couldn't be bothered, and a niece that was AWOL. But all in all I think I had one of the better times than previous years. Not sure why.

Maybe one of the reasons is that there was definitely a Christmas miracle tonight. I did not forget anyone. At all. Even the schmucks who didn't show got loot. How cool is that?

Have a very Merry Christmas and all that everyone. Love.
