With all the insanity involved around the holidays, you seem to lose sight of what's most important. People actually lose not only sight but sleep, actually hours a night and some get barely any. Between the presents to your family, your in laws, grandparents, best friends, God parents, boss... the baking cookies, mixing sugarfied Chex mix, building condemnable Gingerbread Houses.....The Christmas Cards......The Party Circuit ( which completely include all the Facebook Christmas related event requests that just sit in your box like an old lady that fell on the kitchen floor)... the outdoor decor that need not look like you belong on an episode of Horders..... Yep. Things can get a lil crazy and that's not even the whole list. Just tryin to complete the tasks outside of work hours makes for an interesting mental state similar to that of a P.O.W. Atleast I already killed the Shelf Elf, so I never have to add those hours back to my life.
Even with all of the above, we're always brought back to reality by none other than family. I don't imagine many other families are alike and the level of communication shared between one is, well, special...
In our newest installment, called "Text Mex", we now grant others a peak into what true family dynamics actually look like for one family... you've been warned.
LC is the mother and the rest are her creative children.
Don't forget the people the really matter during the craziness.
Literally you can not make this stuff up.
