Zippity do da, zippity a!
My mom, dad, and oldest brother are at my house right now. My other brother and his two sons will be here in a couple of hours. Tomorrow my sister-in-law will get here.
Pheasant hunting is what has drawn them all here. Some of my wonderful parishioners are letting them hunt on their land, so the guys are pretty excited about getting out there tomorrow morning. Since we won't be able to be together for Christmas, this is really our chance to be together as a family. My oldest brother and my sister-in-law have never been at our house, and we've been here a year now, so it's nice this has all worked out.
I'm just so very happy! And VERY sore and tired from all the cleaning...
