On Vox: Home for Christmas - Part 1

I was fortunate to be able to spend some quality time at home this Christmas.  In years past, there's been way too much going on and I generally leave feeling like I didn't get to spend enough time with anyone.

This year was different.  I got to play with my nephews, hang out with my family and party with my friends.  And with the exception of a few, I got to see and do nearly everything I had hoped. 

Here are some highlights.

Christmas Morning.  If you follow my blog you may recall my post about my nephew wanting handcuffs.  Well as you'll see from the picture below, he was EXTREMELY happy with them and proceeded to cuff anyone and everyone to chairs and each other.  Yes, he's an interesting little one.


Swedish Family Dinner.  So it's a tradition at our house to have a swedish meal with my Dad's side of the family for Christmas.  Lutefisk is a Swedish food that you don't want to try.  It's cod soaked in lye.  My dad has resorted to bribing us with lottery tickets in order to get us to eat it.  In a tough economy, this proved to be especially effective.  Here's a video of my brother's girlfriend who decided that shooting the Lutefisk like a shot would be the best approach.


   So I've got lots more to share so I'll post this in series.  More to come!
