A Very Dowd Christmas

On Christmas, since Mom bailed on us and went to Hawaii, harumph, her local daughters needed to get together, if for no other reason than to marvel at Mom's audaciousness at leaving us behind.

Luckily, MB and her man The Dowd were already hosting his family for Christmas, and so Mistah and I jumped right in . . .

. . . and found ourselves right in the middle of A Very Dowd Christmas.

The Dowd women look pretty great bookmarked by a couple of Corey women, don't they?

Aw, our illustrious and inimitable hosts.

We had a lovely time, it was a wonderful party, the food was outrageously delicious, MB and The Dowd were nothing but gracious and generous and hospitable, and the whole Dowd Clan was a pretty excellent substitute family.

But the best part? Well, as everyone knows, Boxing Day is Corey Sister Photo Shoot Day, and we made the most of it . . .

Thanks for the wonderful time, MB and MD!

Loving those stockings, MB! Sassy!! You and Mark look adorable in that photo. A Christmas shot for the ages.

And you and Ellie look so fabulous in your black and red as well. Ah, gotta love the Corey sister love. Especially because it's clear that you are NOT your mother's favorites. (At least not this year! hee hee).
