Heidi had the idea that while they were all dressed up and still in good moods, we should get a picture of them all.
It was a little tricky, but good enough.
As soon as she got here, p.j. found me to ask about presents.
Usually we eat first--there was a huge feast of holiday food. We had meatballs and shrimp, cheesy potatoes and salad, cookies, and the others all brought food. There was lasagna and garlic bread, bbq chicken and buffalo dip, more cookies.
Anyway, in the past we've eaten first, but I told p.j. there are no rules, and maybe what we should do is just open presents As Soon As Possible.
Julia did a poll. The adults were unconcerned either way, but the kids voted, and even at one point two voters were so excited they socked each other in the head. Oh my goodness.
