Blended Holidays

Onse upon a time, a girl wth 2 kids met a guy wth 3 kids. online. in a yahoo chat room. talkn bowt basketball. his 1st line to me was "got kids?"
The rest is a whole lot more tthan histry! thees kids went thru puberty tgethr becos of ther age closeness. (mch mor closer tthan me and tom, by age, *snort snigger) so we date fr 2yrs......mind yuo, i'm fiting cancer at th time so try tto imagin dating like THAT....but tthats wht we do. and then we get marryd, and atempt to blend this psycotic famly. And thay aallllllllll go thru puberty tgethr.

Our holidays begin wth August brrthdays, actuly. 2. 2 august birrthdays. then October. 1. then November. 1. and December. was 1. now wth the addishn of owr frrst grandson, 2.
to try to make brrthdays a big freekn deel, whch my kids wr used to, we intro'd th brrthday supper. that quickly got owt of hand and has only resntly came bak due to toms insistns last summer. LOL thay all had amazng rquests. whch was fun! and we enjoyed evry sngl one! Mike's fave seemd to be homeade beef stew in thees bred bowls i made, and perogys. whn she ws yunger, Maddie wanted all mexicn. Amanda lovd Genrl Tso chicken but truth be told she wantd th take out. and we just codnt aford fr th whol fam. Danny bownsed from BBQ ribs and pulld BBQ pork. and Donnie ws probly eezyst he wantd his sister Amanda to make chef boyardee pizzas.
so what ws th problm yuo ask? we wr makng thees  meels on a stove wth 1 wrrking burner!!! heers an exampl, ths is thanksgiving dinner. now mind yuo ths is not the apetizr table OR th desserts. 1 oven, 1 burner.
