Every year the holiday stress is real. The lists, the shopping, the crowds, those last minute gifts I ALWAYS forget. Add to that all the travel and packing. Every year I wonder if it's all worth it and I think "next year we just stay home".
And then every single year Christmas morning comes and we all eat breakfast and sit around the living room and open gifts and we get to see these 6 faces light up.
And it's all totally worth it and I would do it over and over again to be with these 6 kiddos. I mean even Felix smiles!
And to have us all together with our bonus McClendon family is just perfection.
