    I'm supposed to be at the Paternal Family Xmas Get-Together right now.
    I'm pimped up, the fruit platter is assembled .. the tray of bread and dips ready to go.

    And i've just poured myself a glass of wine to settle in.

    May as well.
    Both boys are sleeping on the couch. I doubt we'll be going anywhere.

    Which means we'll probably get in trouble later on.

    And that dinner will be hommus, bread and fruits.
    Served elegantly.

    Oh, you may pay for your "no show" later :-) Is it a reflection on the nature of the event or Christmas time overkill?

    I could go a little nap myself about now....

    We've just missed my maternal relatives' get-together because of a sleeping household too!

    Sometimes, something's gotta give.

    Enjoy the wine!

    Well, at least you can blame the boys :-) Lucky you.

    Kids are the best excuse to get out of anything.

    Were you supposed to wake them up especially?

    Not sure if it's my job to wake him .. maybe if it was for something I really wanted to do .. like a Robbie Williams concert et al ;)

    My husband works awfully long days/weeks, so I don't like to rock his boat too much.

    As it was, he jumped up about 2seconds after posting and loaded up the car like a madman, and we left. Just like that !

    Super-freak style !

    Your priorities are right on. I have lost count of how many times we've been late because the munchkins fell asleep and we simply let them. The extended fam always gives us grief over it, but I say they're best ignored.

    The consequences of waking them up and taking them, cranky, to whatever event are just not worth it. I like your strategy so much better!
