Ok.. I'll admit. I made it sound like my mom cancelled Christmas. But lets be real for a moment. She would if she could. She's already streamlined us to the point where if she tries to cut out anything else she will have a mutiny on her hands. And that would end badly for her. We dont need much, but our traditions matter. Not to her. But to us.
But we deep fried a turkey. And it was amazing. Dave was totally quality control. He does a good job. Thats why we like him.
Katie came post-nap. And kinda reverted to the little girl of the summer. The one that makes grown adults cry cause she's ruthless in holding out her love. She's not a "just woke up" kinda person.
I cant really blame her tho. Grumpy pants run in the family on occasion. Or at least we share them.
Ben and my Dad played with Ryder's toys. It was precious.
