A Peek Into Christmas With My Family

Joe Orlando

I’ve got a huge family (there are 7 of us kids) so any time we get together, its an interesting adventure. My Christmas started off with visiting my parents who are housebound as Dad is recovering from a bone marrow transplant.  I enjoyed my time playing with the little kids and sipping coffee and catching up with Mom and Dad.  After their house I went to my sister Beth’s house.  Beth is a Christmas-a-holic who loves to host our family every year.  I’ve got no complains.  Beth and her mother in law do the cooking and the cleaning and everything in between and I just have to show up.  Winning!

Highlights from my family Christmas this year included:

  • Learning that when my sister Beth was little she wanted to be a Klingon.
  • Receiving a Santa hat with a crown (the joke in my family is that I’m the Queen of everything)
  • Learning that my brother Jeff hated his outtie belly button so much that he had surgery to turn it into an innie (there’s a pic in the gallery below!). Beth’s comment was great.  She said “what’d they do?  Pop it?  Beth is blonde.  For real blonde, not dyed like I am. And I love the random things that come out of her mouth.
  • Giving my sister in law Meg her ugly Christmas outfit.  She hated it.  With a passion.  And I couldn’t stop laughing at her expense!  It was worth every penny.
  • Playing Apples to Apples with the adults and getting into loud and silly debates as to why my card should be picked as the winner.
  • Receiving a new set of dishes from my sister (they’re read and black and square in shape).
  • Watching my brother Jeff and nephew Kayden dance Gangnam Style (video is below).
  • Dressing up the dogs in Christmas outfits.  Too adorable!
  • Spending time with those I love.
