THEN, http://www.lfgcomic.com/page/213 had me doing it all over again. A duet! A duet with occasional back-up signers! *glee* (kind wonder about Richard, but then, we always wonder about Richard, eh?)
Christmas with my family was wonderful. We really had the whole family for dinner - parents, brothers, Sister-in-Law, me, my son, youngest brother's girlfriend and both Grandmothers. And we all fit around that table mother is so proud of, which in turn fits in the dining room. It's all good.
In case you were worried about Brother 5's girlfriend, her first introduction to the family was actually Grandma O's 90th birthday party, which was more family reunion than anything else, so Brother 5 is really throwing the poor woman into the deep end and expecting her to swim. Which she seems to be doing quite well. We'll keep her. Come to that, Sister-in-Law's first introduction to the family was a family reunion. We're keeping her, too.
