For Meghan King Edmonds, spending Christmas Eve with her family was a giant reminder that moving to St. Louis was the right thing for her and her crew. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum spent the holiday with some 20 members of her extended clan. And though hosting a group that size can be daunting, the mama of three managed to pull it off with aplomb — and she ended the day feeling all the warm and fuzzies.
On December 24, Meghan took to Instagram to share an adorable family photo that featured her husband Jim Edmonds, her daughter Aspen, her twins Hart and Hayes, and several smiling family members. (Yep, Girly Girl the goldendoodle was there too!) In her heartfelt caption, Meghan detailed just how she spent the day.
"Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!" she wrote. "It was so fun putting out cookies and milk with Aspen, having her “help” open all her (enormous) family’s presents, get possessive with her family she doesn’t know well over her brothers, and read The Night Before Christmas and it actually be the proper night for the book. Hosting Christmas Eve for 20+ with three babies can be a lot but we pulled it off beautifully. Nights like tonight validate my decision to move to Missouri times a million. Family is everything."
