He loves tearing into his gift almost as much as he loves eating it!
The kadults gave Jeff a Chewbacca suit, which he wore proudly:
He even walked the dog while wearing it, and as the days got colder, the suit seemed even more necessary.
I wasn't kidding about the Harry Potter loot:
Everyone got something - for the record, the Gringotts chocolate coins are delicious, while the jelly slugs are about as gross as you might imagine, LOL.
I gave the kadults a picture collage of our visit to The Simpson world, along with a photo statuette of my favorite family picture of us:
Some families go formal, some coordinate their clothing - but we happily pose with Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa Simpson!
I got a framing staple gun, which I've wanted for years but never could justify buying for myself. I've already used it and love it:
Why did I go so long without having this? It's freaking awesome!
The other thing that I requested, and received, was a combination hairdryer/brush, which lets you dry and style your hair at the same time. I cannot believe how easy it is to do my hair with it, and I'm thrilled with how it looks:
Well apparently I have a certain side when I do selfies, LOL.
Christmas dinner, with traditional crackers beforehand, which gave us our traditional paper crowns:
Hmmm. I think I see which kid takes after which parent...
Followed by mandatory rest time:
So full, so sleepy!
So bery sweepy!
It was a great day, and just really nice to be low-key and get to spend time with our family; while our humor might not be for everyone, there is always a lot of laughter happening and I'm glad we get each other so well. We also had another full week together after Christmas, which was especially nice - the times when all four of us are together are too few, so we have to make every moment count.
