This year, however, I discovered a new website. And I have ordered and received this year's sweater. Check it out -- cats and shopping bags. R. _swears_ it is adequately Christmas-y, but I have my doubts. I probably would have gone with the Nutcracker sweater instead.
The goal is to eventually have enough really bad holiday sweaters to wear a different one every day from T-day to Boxing Day -- or at least the 12 Days of Christmas. I feel like I should really give my children something to roll their eyes over and make them want to hide their mother away from their friends. Fortunately, R.'s sense of humor/style is at least as veering as mine -- he gets it.
