[Uncle Alfred and the girls after a long day.]

This is what happens when you wake up at 2:15 in the morning to go Christmas shopping on Black Friday.  Somehow we lasted a whole eight hours (a step up from last year) before finally conking out at Chick-fil-A.  I've only got a few more gifts to buy/make, and I'll be set for the rest of the season!  Boy, do I feel accomplished.
