Ahhh... a Christmas surprise!

Since this is the first Christmas Bainwen and I have had to balance families, the last few days have been pretty darn busy. Christmas Eve with my family, with Bainwen meeting the whole lot of us for the first time. She'd met my father's side, but it's tiny compared to the mass of people on my mom's. Aunts and uncles aplenty, ancillary family all around, 85F rooms and stuffy air. A normal Christmas Eve for me, but a bit overwhelming.

Christmas Day was with her family. Simple enough, Lunch-Dinner hybrid and presents, with a little bit of a Christmas surprise at the end.

"So..." started Bainwen. "What are you all doing on June 21st?"

Blank looks.

"Well... we figured you could come South for a wedding! :-D"

Jaws drop.

Questions as rapid-fire as from an MG42, congrats and handshakes flying. Yet, in all of that, only one hand matters.

This one.

Congratulations and best wishes to you both!!

I'd better warn you to stock up on the booze. Snopesters can really put it away, you know.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (sounds like it will be!)
