Brothers and Sisters

Brothers and sisters. I’ve always wanted them.  Thankfully, I came from a really big family with lots of cousins around. I never felt lonely, but I’ve always wanted my very own brothers and sisters.

Don’t get me wrong, being an only child definitely has its perks!  I am so thankful for the relationship I have with my parents. In our family photos, it’s just us! Which is pretty great.

My husband, on the other hand, is one of four.  One of four loud, opinionated, amazing children.  Their family photos look a little different from mine.  Take a look at these guys! Seriously stylin’.

They are funny and kind and sarcastic and honest and totally family oriented.  When I met them, the jokes immediately began, and I knew I was in! They treat me like one of the group, and I love calling them my brothers and sister.

We’ve had lots of fun, but that’s another story for another day.  What you need to know now, is that tomorrow night is sibling dinner and game night!

I love it when our house is loud and full, and when they come over it feels like the house expands.  Like the walls have to bow out a little to fit all of their personalities in one place.

We’re going to make tacos, eat lots of chocolate, and if I play my cards right, I may be able to talk them into Scattergories!

I can’t wait to show you how we set the table for the big night!  It has been so cold here, and I’m sick of it.  I want our table to use warm colors and feel cozy. Spicy tacos.  Warm table setting.  You can’t beat that.

I’m also going to share some of the recipes that we’ll use.  I hope you’ll come back for some of the recipes!  Like lava cake.  You’re going to want to come back for lava cake.

What is your favorite thing to do with your siblings?
