Took down the Christmas tree & packed all holiday-related items into crawlspace. RLF helped, even with the glass ornaments, carefully placing them in their containers. Watched part of the BCS fiasco (which would have been prevented by a playoff). I’d predicted Alabama would have three touchdowns or more and Notre Dame would have one or[...]

Took our family Christmas portrait today. That took about 30 minutes of Rebecca-wrangling. You’d think after I’ve taken 10,000 (estimated) photos of her, she would be okay with having her photo taken. If we got one usable picture today, I’ll be happy.

She still managed to cook a tasty evening meal that included: chicken, dressing, sweet potatoes, pineapple upside down cake, cookies, rolls, herb-roasted potatoes, rice-and-beans, apple cider,[...]
