We (ok, I) survived! Five cats, two dogs, four kids, me and the hubs. Yes, you read right, 5 cats. KC has two adorable kittens that came for a couple of days and Keenan brought his dog Ranger. There was a ton of commotion and activity, but overall it was a very lovely holiday.
Christmas Eve - around 1am. When all the wrapping was done and the visiting Pablo (aka Hot Mess) finally fell asleep. (The cat's nickname is hot mess, not K's)
They wanted a family photo in their red jammies. This one was my favorite because it captures the father/daughter/daughter/son dynamic so well.
Activity based holidays seem to work well for us. Everyone loved the fondue.
Even Mr. Picky.
