I went up to the 'burbs for a day of Christmas feasting, good friend time spending, and mostly some dog pettin' time. Well that's what everyone who came over for Christmas did. Here is my dad, prepping Merlin for the big day ahead of him.
What's interesting about our Christmas celebration is that over the years it has turned into a big Jew-a-thon, considering the only people who are not really jewish are my mom and her brothers and my aunt. We did the whole menorah thing because this was one of those years where the holidays intercepted.
