You know what Christmas means in my family?
Pie. Lots and lots of pie. Interesting day. I miss Fiance and Duke, but I spent the day with my parents and my extended family. My Grandmother cooked Christmas lunch/dinner which was amazing. So Christmas means pie in my family.
Mmmmmm Pie. Pecan, Squash, Lemon, Strawberry rhubarb, Chocolate, Boston Cream, Apple, oh yum yum yum (and yes, we really did have at least one of each on the table!)
Here is the Dukemister after his long hard day. He and the other dogs were left to play outside while fiancé and his family exchanged gifts. My gifts have been placed in a plastic bag and put up high so they don't get marked.
Duke's big gift! An L.L. Bean doggie bed! Cuteness and awesomeness. If you don't have one of these, you are totally missing out. It also totally has his name on it.
Aw, family. Clearly Duke is distracted.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the Santa Claus massacres that happened in Southern California last night. What a horrible, horrible, tragedy.
