Merry Christmas to All, Part 1

We actually had two Christmas dinners with family this year. The first one was actually on Christmas Eve at Jenny's mom's house in San Jose. As with Thanksgiving, Jenny did a good chunk of the cooking. Russell was back in a Baby Einstein phase at the time, so we spent most of the time before opening presents watching these way-too-old videos. (Luckily, he's now in a Teletubbies phase.)

The good thing is that the boys didn't get many presents so there wasn't much junk to haul home. I even left a couple of items there that we really didn't need--shhhh, don't tell anyone.
