Tim got the toilet paper. I got the paper towels. (12/24/06)
But the twist this year was that Tim's family came to visit us, at least the ones from the desert (Tim's sister and nephew stayed back East this year). They drove over in their RV, which they parked at a campsite not too far from here. To make things more comfortable for Tim's grandma, we put her up in the spare bedroom.

On Sunday evening, we had a nice hors d'ouevres buffet, consisting of a variety of meats, cheeses, and other tasty treats. Tim's Mom made her potato salad that I love. Afterward we opened up presents, always with the oldest person starting off and then working our way down (since Tim's nephew wasn't with us, I was the last one this year!)
Since it's not an odd year, we brought out the fake tree. (12/24/06)
The following day, we cooked a turkey breast, stuffing, mashed potatoes, the whole works, which we followed with a few rounds of cards, which was a lot of fun.

I can't say it was the most exciting Christmas we've ever had, but it was very nice. We might try staying home more often!
