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.
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 . . .
