My Big Fat Slovenian Christmas
The day started- where else?- in the snow! Our igloo is holding up well in the arctic temperatures- even with kids and dogs jumping on top of it.
In the late afternoon/evening we headed to our big Christmas party. At first, Ricky was overwhelmed with the LOUD voices, the many faces and kisses, the kids running around in crazy costumes. But as soon as he found a Teenage Mutant Ninja turtle suit and the karaoke machine, he became Michelangelo the lounge singer and all was good.
It was phenomenal to visit with my cousins, aunts, and uncles- and have the kids experience a family Christmas party.
There was enough food and drinks to feed an army, as my grandma would have liked:).
The best part was reading the Night Before Christmas, singing carols- and then having a surprise visitor! These are the memories my kids will have when they grow up.
