We spent Christmas with Cory's family, and I got reacquainted with my animal friends.
Poppy's smoked BBQ ribs were a highlight, as always.
The grandchildren got their annual photo by the tree (some willingly, some not-so-willingly).
And the womenfolk did our traditional marathon day of shopping.
Can't come home until the car is full.
We paid a little visit to a certain magic kingdom...
Had some tea...
And hobnobbed with royalty.
We picked up a little hitchhiker on the way home. Cory and I made a quick stop to switch off driving, and this sweet little guy asked for a lift and a home. Of course, we couldn't say no. He's all settled in, gotten a clean bill of health, he just needs a name. He's currently answering to Mr. Baby, but that sort of nonsense can't be permanent. Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments!
We spent New Year's Eve with my family and our friends. I took it easy and left the camera behind, though I do with I had some photographic evidence of us trying to learn "The Wobble" ... that's blackmail material for sure.
