We had a fantastic and healthy Christmas this year. It was one of the colder Chistmases I can remember (high temp was in the 50's....brrr), but there wasn't a cloud in the sky. My sister was able to stay for Christmas, but her husband had to work on Christmas Eve and we didn't catch up with him until New Year's Day.
Chris and I convinced my parents to babysit for us on New Year's Eve so that we could go to a party. The party went like this: Arrive, sit by fire bowl, listen to a live band, consume many adult beverages (me), play beer pong (him), light a bottle rocket (him), singe my hair with the bottle rocket (him), everybody laugh when it turned out all was well, and then we went home. It was a great time. It will forever be "the year that Cass' hair caught fire", I'm sure.
