Start off with M&M's, regular and peanut, Hef's dad "prepared" those all by himself. Also we have the toffee popocorn with the peanuts, CRUNCH! We had National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation playing quietly thruout the party.
In the Fireplace room we had a veggie platter and music.
Bandit did briefly came out of her cage and sat nicely with me, until a few people who promised they would not try to pet her, tried to pet her and she barked a few times before I told her "Place" which is basically stay and she went to her blanket and calmed down. Shadow was out for the whole party and tried to steal a ham sandwich from Hef's Dad's Uncle. Hef visited and was properly ooh'd over and petted. Hef's Grandpa on Hef's dad's side loves Hef and Hef hung out on his shoulder for a long while until I got nervous he would pee on Granpa's shoulder so then Hef went back upstairs. It was very nice but as you can tell it has left be lagging behind. Will continue to recap Christmas ASAP.
