Today is the BEAKLEY FAMILY CHRISTMAS at our house.  We'll have our family, my brother, his wife and their sweet boy Porter and baby Lilly who is still in utero.  My parents.  My Mimi.  My Aunt Donna & Uncle Alan and cousin Casi.  Fun times today!

We did this last year and it works out great for all of us to get together the weekend before Christmas!  The funny thing about when we have big meals over here is that I'm not slaving in the kitchen, Aaron is.  He is the chef of the family and he never lets us down!  Today we're having enchiladas, tostadas, mexican rice, beans, corn pudding (i'm making that) and lots of cheesecake and cookies (still from the cookie exchange party!!!).  Then we'll have our $10 Christmas exchange, which I hope I get my gift.  🙂

Here we are last year:


Who cooks when you have all your family over?
