i have such a huge extended family!! If someone asks me about my fathers side of the family, im just...lost. I have 20 cousins on that side of the family, who each have close to 6 kids each, and those kids have 2-3 kids, and more on the way. :P

 

And my dad is obsessed with tea...he wont even consider having breakfast, lunch, or dinner without tea. :D
