My husband is the youngest of four and his family has a long standing tradition of uniting every second Christmas. Somehow we manage to fit Ben’s grandparents, his parents, his brother and sister-in-law, two sisters and two brothers-in-law, three nieces, seven nephews, one Ben, one me, and one Moksha under the same roof and ring in the holidays with good food and cheer. This year we managed to squeeze a quick family portrait session in between the relentless drizzle and our lovely Christmas Eve dinner. After dinner the children treated us to their adorable rendition of the Nativity story complete with costumes, songs, and props and Ben accompanied them on guitar. We’re meeting again soon in March and maybe if we’re lucky they’ll do an Irish jig and the babies will dress as leprechauns. I promise to take pictures if they do.
