Family Visits


September 19, 2013 by aljakatz

So, here we are at the very beginning of Fall.  Since we moved into our beautiful home, we photohave had many visitors.  We love having family here!  For our kids though, that’s another story.

We have family coming for a visit at the end of September, mid-October, and then we are hosting a big Thanksgiving here with extended family to boot!  My kids’ typically roll their eyes, mumble something and then just cope. It’s funny because when the family actually arrives, the kids are excited and great.

This time, however, their feelings may be a bit different when they hear how often and how many family members will be here over the coming months.  I’m guessing their reactions will be less than enthusiastic.  Probably something like this…

SO funny but, most likely, true!  Well, I’m excited and my hubby is excited so that’s what matters most… right?

With that, my question to you is – How long is TOO long for a family member to stay at your house?  Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!  Happy Fall!

    It’s the 5 day rule…Five days is the maximum number of days that you should stay in someone else’s home or have guests in yours before things get complicated!

    In Mallorca we said: To host family is like to have fish in the fridge: After 3 days both stink!! :))))
