His family has a tradition where everyone gets a bunch of scratch-offs in their stockings and there's a competition to see who can win the most. Overall, this was a pretty weak year, and the boy wound up winning with about $5.
But the fun part about doing Christmas with his family is that his niece and nephew are there to really get into the Christmas spirit. Or at least his niece is, his nephew is still just a little too little to have any idea what's happening.
But the big present of the day was his niece's new John Deere tractor.
And since I posted a picture of my presents from the 1st Christmas I have to do the same for the second, right?
So overall, we had not just one great Christmas but two great Christmases. And even though our families are half a country apart, we somehow were able to make it all work. Anyone else have any interesting arrangements so you can celebrate the holidays with all the people you want to?
P.S. There's going to be some exciting news From L.A. to LA news in the next few days! Get excited!
