We are blessed to live close to family, and we have a lot of them. The majority of my immediate family live within 30 minutes of our house. As in, anyone closer than a third cousin lives in the Metroplex. Allie’s family is a little more spread out, but both of her parents are in the area as well as her sisters and a host of step-family.
So, we see everyone at Christmas. EVERYONE.
Eli enjoyed it thoroughly, and we had no major melt-downs. All of this is a good thing.
