Today was my late husbands families annual Christmas party. I woke up at 8 am and my kids their breakfast and my coffee. I made a Peach cobbler cake mix dump cake. It snowed quite a bit over night so I had a lot of shoveling to do just to be able to get out of my driveway and go to the party. I took anxiety pill before I went to the party. I filled my cup with lemonade only to be told it will full of tequila. I didn't want to be rude and pour it back so I drank it. My kids had a fun time. We stayed at the party for about 3 1/2 hours. My brother and sister in law said they were going to stop up over so as soon as we got home I shoveled the rest of my driveway. From start to finish it probably took me at least 2 hours to shovel it all today if not more. After all that they have not arrived and my son is really hoping they come so he and his cousin can play! I am too exhausted for words. The photo is of a gift I received at the party today!

I am glad you made it through the event. I remember reading a year ago about how you go to that yearly Christmas party with your kids.

Nice towel.Glad to hear you had a nice time at the party sorry to hear about the spiked lemonade hope you didn't drink to much of it. I hope your brother anf his wife and kids show up would hate to see your son be upset.

I was going to tell my kids there was lemonade up there good thing I drank it first to know it was spiked. Hopefully none of the kids drank any by accident.

I do hope they turned up - for all your sakes. That is a lot of effort to go to if they don't appear.

Nope they did not come so it was a complete waste of my time shoveling all that especially as today it is raining so it would have all gone away.

@shaggin What a waste of effort. Did you need the exercise?

@shaggin I am so glad they had a good reason for not coming round. It was awful to think they just didn't bother.

That is a cute gift and I'm sure you'll get much use out of it. No, you can't be rude when it comes to tequila! Did your brother ever show?

I LOVE these! She makes them each year to give out. I have 6 now all attached to my oven door! She said it takes her about 2 hours to make each one.
