After all that anticipation, shopping, and angst, it’s finally Christmas!  Of course, it will all be over far too quickly, but at least it’s here now.

The plan is for the girlfriend and I to head over to my parent’s house for brunch and to exchange gifts, then to drive out to my girlfriend’s house for dinner (and more gifts).  My parents are fairly close (about 15 minutes away), while it’s about an hour’s drive to see her parents.  We’ll be staying over night there and coming back tomorrow.

The whole family is here this year: one brother in from London, the other from New Jersey, and my dad up from Baltimore (he and my mom are still together – I’ll have to explain that sometime).

Anyway, Merry Christmas!
