Toooo much Christmas!
This picture is of a small portion of the Christmas gifts that arrived at my mom's house for our family gathering yesterday. Our Christmas gathering begins with everyone stumbling through the door looking over a pile of teetering packages. The sight of all this booty, once it's piled in my 82 year old mother's living room has become a point of discussion for the last three years. "This is obscene! We need to do something about this!" Finally, this year, with the pounding of a fist on a tabletop and a call to, "Order in the house! Listen Up!", we have come to an agreement to change. So, names of each member were written and drawn. Now, there will be one gift held by each person entering the house next year. Family traditions die hard. This one's time had come. Have a merry, Ronnie
