Did you survive the mayhem?

I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas! We spent Christmas Eve with my husband's family at a SIL's house, then Christmas morning at our own house with my sister and mom arriving late morning. Mid-afternoon we went to my other SIL's house to eat dinner with my husband's family. We alternate Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with each other's families so things stay fair. This Thanksgiving was my mom and sister's turn with us so Christmas dinner was his family's turn with us. My SIL's kids got Rock Band for the Xbox 360 and it was so funny watching my adult and teenage nephews banging away on drums, playing guitars, and singing totally off-key! Even the little kids got into it. My husband has a huge family so gatherings, which are a-plenty, can be really overwhelming but are usually fun, too. All his brothers and sisters and their respective families were together for Christmas Eve this year. It's been a while since we've had that. One of his brothers lives in CA, another in New Zealand. The rest of the siblings are in the local area.

We were sad to find out that my niece's little Pomeranian, Leo, had a seizure and died a few days ago. She is on her way to buy herself a new dog already this morning. I'm sure it'll be so cute. One of my SIL's is also dog shopping and has found herself a Shih-Poo that she wants so I won't be surprised if that shows up at her house soon.

I am sooo done with Christmas cards now and have been actively working on some Valentine cards. I'll leave you with this one:
