I apologize in advance to anyone who thought that the title, Abuela’s Christmas Jell-O Shots, would refer to a super secret Jell-O shot recipe. It does not. But perhaps it helps to explain a chain of events:
December 17th: My Mother-in-Law called me to tell me how she’s going to drive all over to pick up everything she needs to make tequila AND vodka Jell-O shots for Christmas Eve. In the same phone call, she tells me I have to buy the toys she wants to give my son for Christmas, because she “doesn’t have time for that.” Oh, I have to wrap them too. AND THEN give them to her when he’s not looking so she can give the presents to him.
December 22nd: MIL texts me thanking me for buying his presents and asked me how much I owe her. I respond, “Oh, you don’t owe me anything. I didn’t buy the presents.” Suffice it to say, she’s not happy with me. Honestly, I haven’t bought ANY presents, not just the ones she wanted me to buy.
December 24th: I present- Abuela’s Christmas Jell-O shots
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Mafia Mommies!

HA – that sounds like something my husband’s Bubbie (Yiddish for Abuela) would do for Hanukkah. Your MIL sounds like a hoot!

Hi Dianna! Yes, she’s definitely one of a kind!
