Happy Christmas

Ed’s Mom is visiting for Christmas (staying in a nearby hotel) and we are having a nice low-key celebration with her, my Mom and my brother Bill.

This morning I wrapped presents, and  ate puffed Cheetos. Chris (Edmund’s Mom) came over this afternoon to hang out. While Ed worked away in his office and later took a nap, Chris and I watched a couple of Christmas movies.  First a Bob Hope movie, and then we watched Elf.

We met Mom and Bill at Mom’s house for dinner: a French Dip cooked in a crockpot. Delicious.  And plenty of desserts. 

Then we hung out for a while.  Bill is the only one of us without some sort of smart gadget. At one point he was the only one not looking at a screen. Doh.

In other news, my Mom has figured out how upload pictures from her newish iPhone to Facebook.  I did not show her. She figured it out on her own. Kudos to her, I suppose.  Now the likelihood of embarrassing pictures of myself on the Internet will increase exponentially. Good times.

Tomorrow: presents and ham and more family. Then: Doctor Who party!
