In the morning, Carolyn made us a delicious breakfast of bacon and eggs, and just got to hang out with the family until Jeremy and Adrienne (newly engaged! What? Fantastic.) arrived from Killarney, at 2:30. Then we snacked and laughed and were generally crazy. Both of our sides seem to want to compete for the "loudest in-laws" prize! And we love it.
There's not a lot else to write, we went on a fantastic sleigh ride, and have friends over for supper, but I won't go into all the details. In general, it's just been warm, and love-filled, like Christmas ought to be. And plus, look at all those presents under the tree! Can't wait to open them, and I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual. And with these great folks, opening the presents will be a riot. And really, really loud. Merry Christmas, everyone, and a happy New Year.
