And it was nice. Some years, it's been kind of stressful but this year everyone who could attend was determined to get along. My great-nephew and his step-brother (ages 5-and-half and 4-and-a-half) went on some kind of sugar-fueled small-boy rampage involving new toys and a game of catch with plastic cars, but even that was relatively pleasant and avoided running into people or furniture.
My Mom gave new anti-SAD lights to the adults, which will be a welcome addition to the office at Roseholme Cottage. Look out, short days, Mom's doin' Science back at you!
