Beat up a child at New Years Dinner

What better way to start the new year than a dinner with the family? Don't answer that. I came prepared this time. The list included:

-Duct Tape
-Super Glue
-Ball peen hammer just in case nothing else worked

These were all for the crazy relative. We all have at least one (some of us have more...that relative that no one really gets along with - she's grumpy, nasty, contrary, irritating, and even mutters to herself. Yep, one of those.

Thankfully, she was otherwise engaged (or perhaps, not invited) and the night went well apart from a 7 year old beating me at Wii bowling. Of course, I tried to cheat and would up clunking the little booger into oblivion with the Wii remote...accidentally, I swear!!!

He was a tough cookie and wound up winning by almost 150 points. Cheating doesn't pay...especially against a little goober :) Gotta love that kid.

Considering the circumstances, it was a great night. Claude is a perfect addition to the family, Uncle Colin makes amazing turkey, and Aunt Rebecca's cookies are yummy. We all had a wonderful night and hopefully, next holiday season goes just as well...but thankfully, it's a year away.
