Social Gatherings.

If you ever decide to invite your lifelong, best-est friends of twenty-five years and their four kids over for a time of wholesome family fun while bringing in the new year, don’t be surprised if half-way into the festivities you find yourselves turning the living-room into a wrestling arena.  Especially when the youngest son of said family is currently a rising little star on his local wrestling team, and the Mr. of said family was an accomplished wrestler of his own high-school wrestling team.

Yes, family wrestling matches are quite the fun, but please stand forewarned:  

With three sons, you just might find that the very next event you host may well evolve into another wrestling match…even if it did begin as a little princess birthday party!
