Of course we had fried rice. A TON of it!
When we arrived at my parents' house early Christmas morning, they were watching home videos of Christmases past. This video is from 1991 - one of several holidays we had in California - shows my mom and brother (only 3 at the time) opening presents on Christmas Eve from our family in Alabama.
Later in the morning at my in-laws house, the rain/snow mess started but we (me and the 9yr old) were ecstatic when we realized the rain stopped and it was all snow and it was sticking to the porch and yard.
Even the puppy, Merlin, got in on the action. He LOVED eating snowballs.
