How did this happen, somehow the "hosting family event mantel" has passed to my daughter and her hubby. I watched it happen with my mom and my sisters-in-law (they are much older than I :), and voila just like that I have been moved to the older generation. And these young great nieces and nephews are moving onto the adult table. I'll probably find a booster seat under the tree for me this year.
All kidding aside, walking into Rachel and Jay's home yesterday and seeing her all prepared didn't just make me very proud but also emotional. Ok Ok I'm always emotional, let's add the adjective "very" in front of emotional.
I kept popping around, "Can I help - no just relax", "what can I do - I think we are OK", "do you need - nope just relax mom". RELAX, it's Christmas, I don't do "relax". I like being wired. OK I will take that glass of wine and watch. LOL.
So I started bugging the other kids, let's take pictures under the tree.
Can I get one family picture before everyone comes.
Today isn't only our Wright Clan Christmas Celebration it is also 45 years since my brother Jim and Eileen were married. The family at that time consisted of 9 family members on the Wright side. Today there are 29 celebrating this wonderful anniversary, with 10 nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews missing.
Thank you to everyone for making this such a special first Christmas in the Fyfe's new home. It is a busy time of year and having so many people making the time and driving in crazy winter weather was so important.
I know in my heart of hearts that Mom and Dad Wright and Mom and Dad Austin and the 2 brothers John were watching over us all today, celebrating with us and keeping us safe.
Merry Christmas everyone. HUGS to all
