Hello Friends and Family
A quick recap of our ExciTInG ChRIstMaS!
Or, the laid back 'Mas of 2014
Christmas Eve Plans - We had a dinner with friends at an all you can eat Shabu Shabu restaurant. After, we were headed to the foreigner bar for drinks and some rekindling of friendships from buddies of Christmas past!
Christmas Eve Actuality - We stayed home from the bar as Anthony was really exhausted. I ended up eating at Cobaco - a pork tenderloin/noodle shop. I ate udon and pork tenderloin with Erin, and then we came back to the house and watched Dumb and Dumber To (which we downloaded for free, and I'm sure glad we did. it was......tough to finish).
Anthony opened his Julia present. She got him a small glass container shaped like a hamburger. TOO HILARIOUS.
Christmas Day Plans - Wear pajamas. Friends arrive. Have breakfast - eggs, pancakes, biscuits, gravy, potatoes, coffee, etc. Hang out and watch Christmas movies. Play board games. Day Drinking (Mimosas and Bloody Marys), snooze, make appetizers including tamales, velveeta dip, Christmas cake, poutine, and spinach dip. Hang out until midnight watching TV, talking and eating.
Christmas Day Actuality - Wore pajamas. Friend arrived. Ate biscuits, gravy, and potatoes. Watched Fred Claus. Made Spinach dip, stuffed mushrooms, tamales, velveeta dip. Drank Mimosas. Watched Christmas Vacation. Friend came over. Watched Finnish movie, Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. Group Discussion. Went to sleep at 11:30. Same pajamas all day.
All in all, a pretty successful Christmas. The only thing I would have changed, was I should've made a veggie plate. I am so full and FAT of junk food! I need an after Christmas Fast. And I DO wish we would've had poutine. Oh well. There's always Easter!
Thanks everyone for making our first Christmas in Maseok such a success! Even for us lazy bones!
