My parents are the only ones that live by us, only about 30 minutes away. Every Christmas Eve we spend it together, opening gifts and just hanging out. This year we made the drive out to their house since they would be coming out to our house for Christmas Day.
I am a mother of a large family who laughs a lot, loves life, adores her family, is most of the time sometimes sarcastic, pokes fun at her family, loves to sew and bake but hates canning (but does it anyway), enjoys crafts and making something cool out of trash, is pro-life and pro-adoption, puts her kids in public schools, vaccinates on schedule, but doesn't judge those that don't, tries really hard to feed her family healthy, but sometimes fails, wants her kids to grow up "in the world, but not of the world" while maintaining her own larger than legal shoe collection. Yep, that about sums me up!
