Merry Christmas 2003

Allison and I by the Christmas Tree

Well, it is Christmas time again. Last night Allison and I went to my sister Tara’s house for dinner and gift exchange with her and her husband Erik. My Grandfather Rick was there and so was my Uncle Jim. My sister Shelby and my mother and father also were in attendance. And Erik’s parents Bonnie and Howard also came.

We had a very fun night with lots of laughs and some fantastic presents that suited everyone’s interests. Like The Sex Life of Plants, a book that Tara received from Bonnie and Howard. That and another book called The Bastard’s name was Bristow. They were big hits.

eBay is a wonderful thing and can help you find all sorts of great gifts. Just ask Allison, she received a couple of vintage sixties Pyrex bowls with Amish People on them from her friend, Peg.

Last night Allison and I returned home and exchanged gifts with my parents. Then we came upstairs and exchanged our gifts together. Allison is all decked out with AB gear for the kitchen. Alton Brown, for those of you who are not on the Good Eats bandwagon yet. He’s a great entertainer and we met him.

Later this morning we are off to see the Allison’s parents and exchange gifts with them and enjoy the baking wonders that Allison slaved over yesterday. She made THREE PIES! That’s a lot of pies. I know, I wash the dishes around here. Anyway from us to you, Merry Christmas.

Christmas Tree 2003

Yes, it is once again time for the jolly old elf to wedge his posterior down the chimney. Here at the apartment we are ready for the Christmas season. Take notice that the lower branches of the tree are practically bare. Could it be because of the cats? Allison just moved one of the couches and discovered the secret hiding place for the Jingle Balls that have disappeared from the tree.

The Holiday Marathon Madness is now upon us. We will be traveling up and down the New England Region to say hello and spread cheer to family far and wide. And if you thought saying it was tough, try doing it. We would like to wish you and your families a safe and Happy Holiday Season. And also we hope that you have enough Roast Beast and keep the Grinch at bay another year.
