Another family tradition of ours is to host a family Christmas Dinner for both sides of our family. This includes most of my mom's extended family as well as my brothers and their families. Whew! We had a total of 36 people here this year, and a joyous, fun, chaotic evening celebrating Christ's birth. My only living grandparent is my mom's mother, Mimi, and we usually spend this time allowing her to pass out gifts to everyone! Including the 19 GREAT-grandchildren. She is so generous and giving to all of us and we had a great time together.
