Our Yule 2013

Had a really good day, actually. The parents of my daughter's boyfriend treated him, my daughter, son and me to McDonalds, then treated us all again, to the movie "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" at the Imax. It was as great movie. After the movie my DD and her BF dropped me and my son back at at our apartment while they went to theirs and picked up the stuff to make mashed potatoes and dressing to go with the ham that I got yesterday. They also brought a couple of presents for each of us. They also brought the gifts they got each other. While the ham was heating up we played the card game that DD got for her BF called "Cards against humanity". Basically it's 2 decks - one with fill-in the blank statements, questions, or to finish sentences. Each person gets cards to use for answers, then each take turns drawing from the 'fill in the blank(s)' deck in the middle, and you take turns judging who plays the best card that fills in the blank. The first one to win 8 times won the game, which was my dear son. Then we ate some of the ham, stuffing, mash taters and talked. After we ate, they ran home and got some colas, came back, then daughter's BF and I played a deck-building game for two called "Ascension" while she played on her phone and dear son played one of the video games that they got for him to play on The Wii. And that was the way we celebrated The Winter Solstice AKA Yule.

That sounds like a good day. Well, except for the McDonald's, the food scares me. But that is me.
The card game sounds kind of neat; I will have to check it out further.
What kind of dressing do you use with your ham?

It was Stove Top Dressing mix, chicken flavored 'with real chicken broth'. That's what it says on the box anyway.

It really was a good day. I'm determined that it's even better next year. Hope you're holiday/sostice/christmas is awe too! <3
