Hope everybody has a great Christmas.
Happy Hannukah, too!
We had a fabulous Christmas Eve with my folks. I come from a family of seasoned choir members, so we do great carol singing, in four-part harmony. Also, we're those annoying people who know ALL the verses to "Joy to the World" and "Silent Night".
Highlights of the gift exchange: DL and CL each got their own cell phones (on a pre-paid plan, natch). All the kids got portable CD players from my parents (except BT, he got a cassette player). And, of course, for JG and BT, more Rescue Heroes and more Tinkertoys.
Dinner was really great, if I may say so myself. I never thought I would gush like this over something so simple, but this recipe absolutely lives up to its name: The Perfect Baked Potato. They were like velvet, all the way through, and I had used really big potatoes. The leg of lamb also rocked.
