We had a family Christmas party last night. What a lot of fun. Next time, I'll hopefully have some pictures to post. We knew this would be full of laughs because there was going to be a lot of practical jokes going on. First of all, Laura has this thing against opposums. Cheri had her name for a gift so it worked out perfectly. She found an opposum skin on ebay. She stuffed it and put eyes into it. Then she put it in a box filled with styrofoam peanuts so Laura had to dig for it. She dug and felt something furry. She didn't suspect anything because Cheri had her name. She eventually found the opposum. This was revenge for when we went to the Shack and Laura and Aaron put a dead squirrel on Cheri's van. Then it was time for Santa letters. First, I undeservedly received one about talking too much and then Dave received a shock collar to put on me when I wouldn't leave people alone. Lastly, Cheri received a letter from Santa. This, I may add, was very appropriate. It was all about teaching her to be kind to others that she may meet. I only hope she will learn a lesson and be able to be put on the "nice" list next year. We had a great time, despite Mari getting sick. After Christmas, I'll be able to put up pictures and post about our remaining holiday fun. Merry Christmas all.
