All Will Be Complete

Son Donald finished his college finals and got home a week ago.  On Monday half of our out-of-town children arrived.  This morning the rest will be here.  Son Tony and his friend Ie woke up very early to get on a plane that arrives about 8:30 AM.  Hubby Tony will pick them up from the airport.  For the next five days it will be a good kind of crazy.

Our four bedroom house, which seems so large for just Tony and I, will be filled to the brim.  As a matter of fact, we don't have enough bed space, so one of the larger bedrooms (currently occupied by Donald) will have "maid service"...clean sheets, straightening, and an air mattress laid on the floor before Tony and Ie take up residence there.

I love having everyone here.  It's good to be able to interact with everyone in person, something that doesn't happen often enough. The refrigerator is stuffed to the brim with extra food.  The dishwasher will go into overdrive to keep up with the larger amount of cups and dishes.  There will be extra loads of laundry going (and it won't be mine to keep on top of!)

Five years ago today: (Not) The Shortest Day Of The Year!


  1. Enjoy a joyous holiday with your large family! Craziness at its best!

  2. Wonderful, wonderful. Sounds like an excellent time.

    PS: Our 2 bedroom trailer feels too big to me now.

  3. Have a wonderful Christmas week, your blog friends here are thinking of you!

  4. You will all have a wonderful time and will remember this holiday for a long time. Best wishes and Merry Christmas.

    1. Every holiday is a good one, but I think this one will be extra special. Merry Christmas to you too.

  5. Enjoy your full and busy house. Have a wonderful Christmas!
