Some Crazy Christmas Glee!

"The family. We are a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together." ~Erma Bombeck

I want to introduce you to some of my family that I absolutely adore. My sister Marva Lu and her hubby have 7 kids---all are now married but one, so with children in-law, they have a posterity of 13 children so far, 19 grandkids, and 3 more on the way, I believe.

This family is crazy. But in all the right ways. They are multi-talented, outgoing, bursting with personality, and completely uninhibited. Those 13 kids are comprised of successful businessmen, doctors, nurses, dance instructors, college athletes, teachers, college students, and the baby of the family---the brains behind this production you're about to see---was a performer at Walt Disney World. (I guess you could say I'm a pretty proud aunt--It's fun to see where they have ended up, and to realize I love the in-laws just as much as my sister's kids.)

They have more fun together than any family I've seen. It's just a party anytime any of them are around, and their enthusiasm is contagious. I love spending time with them. So here is a taste of their crazy Christmas Glee that they are spreading this holiday season. Enjoy!!!

And just in case that wasn't enough glee for's one more video they put together at a family reunion earlier this summer. I told you they were crazy. And I love 'em.

  6. That was so much fun to watch. I think you and your hubby and your four darling children should make one too. Maybe it will make the oldest son of yours smile. HA HA! Tell older teenager boy (I can't remember what you call him on here) Joe Cool that we miss him and to hang in there and we miss him terribly. We miss you all. Shelli I know you have those cougarette Dancing skills still. I fully expect to see one of your own on here ASAP! HA! LOVE YA, Dana...
