We will be on time, the meal will be an hour late, and MIL will be snippy because she thinks we're rushing her. Everything served will be white or brown (turkey, mashed potatoes, noodles, rolls, cheesecake), and there will not be a fresh fruit or vegetable in sight. The in-laws will make not-so-subtle comments about how we're depriving our kids by not letting people literally buy them 50 presents each. We will play pinochle, and DH's grandmother will use the...
