Well, I'm back from spending Christmas with my wife's wonderful family in Tennessee. It was as hectic and enjoyable as ever, although it turned out that not too many people really got into the idea of doing the horrible Christmas sweaters this year. That meant that my wife and I, her mother and sister were pretty much the only people who had put any prior thought or effort into getting a sweater for the event. Now, I realize the pictures I posted last time were pretty terrible, so heres a better one.
We had a fantastic time making our sweaters, but there was an unexpected consequence of my Christmas tree design. Usually my wife's family is pretty conservative about things. They're not prudish, exactly, but they tend to get a little nervous when it comes to anything racy. That's why I was caught off guard to hear two or three different "Christmas balls" jokes around the tree on Christmas Eve. I usually have a few laughs during the Christmas festivities, but this year I was cracking up all night long. I hope your Christmas was as entertaining, and that you have a safe and spectacular New Year's 2012!
