The week before Christmas we surprised Mrs. Ryan with Pierce's homecoming. Originally, he was trying to surprise his whole family but then his dad and brother found out so only Mrs. Ryan was the one in the dark. He had told her that he couldn't come home for Christmas because of a class that he was taking. He and Christopher had been planning this for months. My mom made a turkey and came up with a bogus reason for them to come over for a pre-Christmas dinner.
Christopher and I planned and executed out Christmas day dinner as we did last year. I was particularly pleased with the way my tiger prawns turned out.
