Anyway, the short story is that James had to work on Christmas. And the stars aligned for 5 of the 6 Binggeli children to be in town at some point during the week of Christmas so we hosted an early festivus at our house on Monday, the 22nd.
It was great! We had ham and potatoes and hot chocolate. We did a short nativity program and a white elephant exchange. The siblings exchanged gifts and the kids got to open some gifts. Glen, Jason's roommate, turned himself into a blanket burrito and the kids attacked him.
It was a great night!
