Cousin Eddie Hat

Growing up, the Spencers watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation every year, and quoted the movie to each other all year long.  Greg found a Cousin Eddie hat on Amazon a couple of days before the Spencer White Elephant Party, and I ordered and paid for over night shipping.  Greg had big plans to come to the party dressed as Cousin Eddie.  It would have been epic!

By 5 p.m., the package tracking showed that it was in West Valley.  It was guaranteed delivery by 8.  Around 7:30, Greg slipped out of the party, taking Cece home, giving her a bath, and putting her in pajamas.  By 8:15, he gave up and came back to the party.

The hat was delivered the next morning around 11.  Ellie was the first one to try it on.

Amazon offered me a digital download of Kung Fu Panda as an apology for missing the delivery window.  That was a nice gesture.

Greg will just have to be Cousin Eddie next year.
