Holly Jolly Fat-mas

On Christmas day we woke up and got our Christmas on as usual. Some people weren’t cheerful because some people weren’t nice this year and Santa didn’t come see them. I’m not pointing fingers.

My dad got a roof for his Polaris Ranger and a Paula Deen skillet. He’s an enigma.

We bought my mom an iPad, she was quite surprised in case that isn’t extremely obvious. She can’t use it or turn it on, but she sure has had fun holding it and imagining all the things she will do when she figures those steps out.

That little monster found a little Reese’s cup and ate it in .078 seconds. She couldn’t even be bothered to unwrap the damn thing. So uncouth.

My dad requested an outdoor broom for Christmas. When I was carrying the wrapped broom to my car on Friday, a guy in the parking lot asked if somebody was getting a Nimbus 2000 for Christmas. I replied that it was a Firebolt and that he was going to be my new best friend forever. You can’t hide from my friendship sir.

My mom gave me a copy of my award winning artwork. Oh, you didn’t know I was an artist? Well, I sure am. In 1992 I won $50 for depicting a day in my dad’s life.

I am a great American treasure. I also got a lot of things for my upcoming trip, including the all important and much appreciated cash donation.

For the big finale, my sister got her boyfriend a motorcycle.

Lucky man. After the presents, we installed the roof on my dad’s Ranger, and took a ride in the freezing cold air (It was below 40 degrees after all).

After the wild ride, I headed in for leftovers and to get started on my dad’s Christmas present.

So far, it’s n0 killing Lincoln. Sad times. A cold front blew in during the afternoon, so while I read, others enjoyed some napping by the fire.

Can you find the fat napper hiding in the background of that photo? God forbid they have to sleep on the same side of the stove. Noooooooo, that would be too easy.

Someone overdid it on the catnip.

We wrapped up the day with some leftovers and a trip to see Django Unchained.

It was amazing. If you loved Inglorious Basterds, then you will not be disappointed. It was so incredibly funny,yet so unbelievably graphic (as expected). It was just perfect. Also, ol’ Leo was such a super creepy creeper. Could not believe that was my sweet faced Jack Dawson.
