Hosting Christmas.

When people visit this house for the first time, they always comment on how big it is. But I discovered today that if you add 20 people to the 5 of us who live here.... suddenly, it doesn't seem so big anymore.

Ice's family Christmas was a success. Everyone seemed to have a good time, there was much laughter and way too much food (we have enough leftovers to last at least a week), I got The General slighly tipsy (on purpose), the presents were nice, the kids ran around upstairs like wild things (which caused some parents some distress but didn't bother me in the least), a surprising amount of alcohol was consumed (especially considering the amount of alcohol usually consumed is zero), and I didn't hear a single complaint. Not one.

It was very busy and very tiring and I'm glad it's over but I really enjoyed the day.
