Dirk and I hosted the Swanson Family Christmas this year. MaryAnne had just had shoulder surgery and we were happy to take on the duties. With too many of us to sit at one table, we utilized a card table for the quintessential "kids table". Complete with crown Christmas "poppers", Dirk's Green Egg and Ham was a hit! However, timing the Christmas meal posed a bit of a challenge and forced us to leave mass 15 minutes early - Oops! Mimi and Bobby hit the ball out of the park with kindle fire tablets for the kids. The volume in our house went from high to virtually silent after the gifts were opened!
