I will do this as much for my own benefit.
Ex Sis in Law hosted with her husband.
Tradie Brother and ABI Brother.
Mother, whose wide brimmed pink feathered hat could be seen floating about a gate as she hovered waiting for ABI Brother to get things from the car.
Hippie Niece and her twin daughters.
Oldest Niece, her partner and Little M, Little Em and Little L.
Ex Sis in Law's husband's daughter and her rather attractive partner.
Ex Sis in Law's husband's other daughter with her same sex partner, a friend and a mother. Why weren't we told about Ex Sis in Law's daughter?
Around twenty people. Ah, left us out. Twenty two.
Wait, Ex Sis in Law's female friend and her daughter.
Yet another, someone who bought a pup from their pug. Mother and son ran around like crazy and they look quite different.
With all these adults each buying presents for the five children, plus what they received yesterday, plus what they receive from their respective parents, plus what the twins were given by their father, plus what Little M, Little Em and Little L received from their paternal grandparents who are separated so two lots of presents each.
This is absurd! The children quickly looked at each present, discarded them and then went on to the next. There was a mountain of presents and an even larger mountain of wrapping paper.
We are really doing this wrong.
Little L looked so cute as an elf. A brother with two confident but quite different older sisters will be interesting to watch. It is not generally in our family experience. But he will have lots of daddy and mummy love.
