Then we went back to my sister's house, where she put out an amazing array of food and we all enjoyed catching up and spending time together.
Remarkably, it was warm enough (so warm!) to have the kids table in the garage. :)
Once the party wound down there, we went to my house, donned our newly gifted Christmas Bowing Team shirts and got to work putting presents under the tree and stuffing 21 stockings. We finished just before midnight...that might be a record.
