|Hot tubbing with Aunt Steph & Aunt Patty|
We battled it out on a Wii American Idol game. (It wasn't until the second verse of "I Kissed A Girl," when my eight-year-old nephew starting singing along with me, that I thought maybe that hadn't been the best song choice.) Poker. Settlers of Catan. That Mexican Train game which has got to be the stupidest game ever invented. Hot tub. Sauna. Cranium. Pool. Table hockey. Walks in the cold. Hot chocolate and more snacks than a frat house with the munchies could consume. I don't think we stopped eating the whole time.

We split up the meal responsibility. Each couple
cooked, served and cleaned up two meals. It was nice to work in the kitchen beside Scott. Nice to have to squeeze by each other around the kitchen island. Nice to set a table together and nice to clean it off together. That doesn't happen at home. I relished it.
We had fun. I would do it again. It was definitely worth giving up the yearly Christmas gifts that never fit and end up being returned anyway.
