We ate a delicious pasta dinner that Anthony prepared and opened presents.
I bought Anthony an Xbox One, an Amazon Dot, and a couple of electric plug switches that working using wifi to turn on and off whatever is plugged into it (like a lamp, which is what we'll likely be using it for).
Anthony gave me a $100 Best Buy gift card, a $150 Amazon gift card, and I received some other gifts as well.

|Serena works on assembling a board game|
Lisa brought her dog Cassie.
Lucky came out to investigate and didn't really care that
there was another dog, he retreated to the bathroom after that.
|Anthony works on his meat|
And by meat, I mean sausages and balls.
What else do you think we'd serve?

she can eat the cookbook.
One of those jokes that pretty much only I found funny.
