My good friend mentioned once that she feels like all of our kids are "cousins" to each other. And she's totally right! The Momma's are like Sisters... we plan to be family forever and we're so lucky to be friends. Our kids see each other from time to time, but the family part really shows up around the holidays. The family get-togethers are some of my most cherished memories.
This year there were 15 kids, next year there will be 18 (maybe more if some of the other girls can make it). I guess we subscribe to "the more the merrier!"
I wonder when our kids will start to question how many times they get to see Santa before Christmas comes around?
It's a good thing Katie and Tom built a home big enough for all of us!
