Got My Girls

Q: What does a man need to do to make himself feel inferior, dis-respected, and misunderstood?

A: Surround himself with a bunch of females.

I am always totally surrounded by females whenever I'm around family members. There's my sister Jennifer, the charming and beautiful Susan, the center of my universe Allie, my nieces Megan and Ambir, and now, Charity.


I can't wait for Christmas to get here. My son will arrive and strengthen the male numbers here. But until then, the only male ally I have is my niece Megan's fiance Jed (who, by the way, is the nephew of a high school buddy of mine; this is a small town). But, conveniently, he's at work a lot leaving me to fend for my self amongst all this estrogen.

This will be the first time since 1989 that I will spend the holidays with my sister and her girls.

I'm ecstatic to have Charity here. The charming and beautiful Susan and her had a mother/daughter day.

Ali looks really happy. It must be nice to be surrounded by so much love.

Allie is just beaming! I bet Charity couldn't wait to see her! What a wonderful time you will have! I'm glad Susan and Charity got some mother/daughter time! Do they like to do Starbucks and shopping together or do they prefer to be hiking out in nature or something?!
You'll laugh Bryon..... my kids and I were at the Disney campgrounds and one of them said something about being out in nature! It reminded me of that staff retreat....
Is your chef brother going to join you guys too? Besides adding some testosterone to the mix, he'd also add some good things to the holiday buffet! :)
