...we had a nice quiet Christmas as a family. We started a new tradition this year: Christmas dinner at Jack In The Box. We had intended to have a nice steak and maybe an ale (for Charlotte and David anyway) but did not realize that 99% of eating establishments in North Texas were closed on Christmas Day (including Kroger!).
