It was a very different Christmas. First, there was the fact that both Mrs. Wright and Amy were very ill. Add to that my exhaustion from having attended midnight mass and been further kept awake by our injured cat. Then there was the heavy rain.
We began with our traditional orgy of gifts. Laura surprised me with a very nice photo printer. The frying pan I gave her seemed to pale in comparison. After than, Amy and Mrs. Wright went back to bed for pretty much the rest of the day.
Houston and Linda came over for a brunch of pancakes and mimosas, and we spent most of the rest of the day printing things out and tweaking photographs.
Mom and Dad joined us later in the afternoon and we had our traditional turkey feast. Afterwards, Laura and I got everything cleaned up, then pretty much collapsed. Apart from the illness and exhaustion, it was still a nice day.
