I have finally found the perfect word to describe my family gatherings. my familty is not as small as some and is certainly not as big as some but its at about a dozen.
Then we've got:
and Uncle Ed(i mena i guess hes my family but i thinks hes actually my first cousin once removed??)
and ummm i know there are others but its gone right now!lol
anywayz...when we all get to gether our celebrations are truly...convivial!
convivial \kuhn-VIV-ee-uhl\, adjective:Relating to, occupied with, or fond of feasting, drinking, and good company; merry; festive.
our family gathering really are like that ( at least from my piont of view) and i really like. we probaly won't have many more like that.(wow i have been so depressing recently although its all coming together at once, selling flop, graduation, possibly going away for the year, and all of it!) and besides i really do like my family, just as it is, and just like it will be as time goes on and it all changes again!
This year at Christmas dinner:
>>Dom's friends who are, get this, coming from england for the holidays(well mo is but george is already here)
Mo ( dont know how to spell his name)
and im sure a few others!
but it'll be wonderful!!!
i love family gatherings, big and small, loud and quite, family is great!(finished at 7:10)
