The gathering! The gathering!

Hail, hail, the gang's almost all here! Another part of the family arrived tonight, so we're only 6 people away from having the full crew in one place - woohoo! There's pretty much nothing I love more than having all these people that I love in the same place at the same time. It can be a little overwhelming in my parents' little house - too many people and too much craziness to absorb it all, or to carry on a real conversation :) , but I love love LOVE it!

And the thing I love next-most? How much we all love each other. :) It took 2 of my nieces (ages 10 and 4 1/2) a good...several...minutes to say good night and good-bye to each other tonight, even though they'll be living only 20 minutes apart for the next 2 weeks (instead of 2 states apart) and will pretty much see each other every day. The 4 1/2 year old said it would be just "SO HARD" to not be having a sleepover with her cousin that night, complete with the HUGEST pathetic eye roll you ever did see.

Yay love! Yay Christmas!

You ALMOST had an impromptu drop by visit of the teeny family too! (insert funny pun) But J figured he'd never be able to pull me away, so decided we'd drop by another time. But, we hope you have a wonderful time and give everyone hugs for us, please!! :)
