Family - the best thing on earth

Ran 5K on the treadmill in the morning while watching DVD "Mao's Last Dancer." Took 32 minutes. Felt great. It wasn't hard at all and I could go on and on. But I had to go work for the boyfriend.

Apparently the holiday festivities continue for my boyfriend's family.
We had lots of family coming down from all over the U.S., and we all gathered at Aunt E's house (or she lovingly calls it "my hotel").

Her place is out in a small, friendly community. Humble. Homey. House full of love.

All the kiddos...

I always feel incredibly lucky and blessed to be part of them.


  1. Awww, that looks a full house!! I love to spend Christmas with kids, they make it so much more memorable! :)

  2. "My hotel" - that's cute! It must be fun having all those young ones around really enjoying the holidays! We only have one little tiny person in our family, so mostly the day is filled with all of us adults drinking too much and talking really fast and really loud!


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
