My family is total love…but let’s keep it real.

December 24, 2011 in Vlog. Or really just the real me.

I love these people.

I really do.

Though I probably don’t tell them often enough.

We laugh.  We interrupt.  We get loud.  We love.

A lot.

These people are my strength.  My support.  My total joy.

But regardless of how deep my love is for them…more than a couple of hours is really enough.

But again…we totally love each other.

And we all wish you lots of love for a beautiful holiday and tons of happiness in the new year.

Just keeping it real.

Enjoy your holiday with them, it’s a lovely time of the year! I’m feeling ready to go home already, my mother-in-law doesn’t agree. Sigh. :p

We really have a great time together…but that’s kind of our joke with each other: acting like we’re sick of each other pretty early.

I’m glad you were able to spend time with yours…Merry Christmas, sweet girl.

Yeah, Christmas “break” is killin’ me softly… and Mickey has next week off. Love the fam. Love ’em…. Love.

…yay for Christmas.

If we couldn’t joke about being done with each other…we couldn’t stuff our faces and drink too much.

Small doses is the best policy 🙂 Merry Christmas to you and the family!

Sounds like fun! Just four words, and I know I really like your dad.

We had a really good time. Mom cooked way too much and way too good but I sho ain’t complaining.

Karyn December 28, 2011 at 6:05 am

Love this. You are all so cute! We had a ‘family’ Christmas also, and it was mostly good – so there you go, some years you get out unscathed and think WTH? It was GOOD! This was our year. Hope you have a happy holiday season!

Ain’t that the truth?!? We had a really good time and we were all like, “Are we really kin?”

Oh yeah, I feel that video. I love my family, but dang, I was there a long time…a looooooooooooong time!

Now my kids, I could eat them up every second, but the extended family gets old, old, old.

We always have a really good time when we’re together. But I am still thankful we’re not the Waltons and all living up under one roof.

I totally should have recorded something similar at my Granny’s house! Except the quiet chatter behind you? Yeah. It wouldn’t have sounded like that. Probably more like a jet engine. And this year, my husband was the worst offender, I do believe. I hope it was wonderful!!!!

It was pretty fab. Dad and I are partners in crime…way too much alike. I look like mom, but the rest is all dad.

There are very few things in my life I’m perfectly certain of…and having a way cool family is one.

Everything else I just wing it, close my eyes and hope for the best. =)

That’s like when all the kids finally left and were put to bed on Christmas night. My mom and I were so pooped. We love everyone but damn are the loud and crazy!! 😉
