Early Bird Christmas

Ben's parents came for lunch on Saturday, and we exchanged presents with them before they go home to sunny Florida.  Seriously-- I am so jealous of their tans.  Retirement sounds amazing.

Ben's mom and Beatrix were twinning, which was awesome.
 We played a rousing game of Beat the Parents-- always fun.
 I actually set the table for fake Christmas lunch (I made this lasagna, which I have made before, but OF COURSE it was better last time, which always happens when I cook for other people).
 Oh, Dorothy.
 Everybody but Cooper say FAMLY CHRISTMAS!  Perfect.
 Harry and Jack went to get HAIRCUTS!!  I KNOW!!  And Dorothy and Cooper wrapped their sibling gift exchange gifts.  This year, the sibling gift exchange is the second night of Hanukkah, and I am pretty darn sure that everyone knows what they're getting already because these kids are LEAKERS.
 What says Chrismukkah season more than a Santa mug full of coca, whipped cream, and butterscotch schnapps?  NOTHING.
 Beatrix thinks she's a cat and keeps trying to get comfy on the tree skirt. Spoiler alert:  NOT HAPPENING.
 You guys.  The library had reindeer, and we stood in line for over an hour in the freezing cold (I actually think it was like 25 minute,s but it felt longer) and THIS!  THIS! was the picture we got.  Dorothy was committed to the line because she wanted to sit in the sleigh,  The rest of us were advocating for looking at the baby reindeer in the pen (SO CUTE!) touching the extra pair of antlers they had (SO CREEPY!) and then going inside to make reindeer headbands (SO CROWDED!) but Dorothy happily stood in line and then sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer all the way home.
