Merry Christmas everyone! I just wanted to post some pics of our Christmas. It was a little quiet I guess because I'm use to a house full of people on Christmas eve and then a lazy day eating with my family on xmas day. This year we just relaxed and watched movies, slept late and slaved over a hot stove. You know your getting older when the first thing you think about when you wake up xmas morn is stuffing the bird and getting it in the oven!
My first turkey..turned out perfect!
Our TINY tree...
Our Christmas shrine instead...lol
We had a big Canadian breakfast on xmas eve morning as I knew there would be no time or room in the kitchen the next day. One thing I will never get used to over here is the traditional English breakfast. Oh yum, beans and black pudding with eggs. Blech. I made pancakes, sausages and bacon with maple syrup. Now that's proper.
I was a little home sick on christmas eve, felt really restless and bored. Richard kept me busy by letting me pick the movies and actually watching them with me! (you knew he was being nice!)
It was weird not to have snow on xmas morning but from what I hear there wasn't any at home anyways!
My mom spoiled us by sending us stockings and new pajamas which is our family tradition. Richard, bless him, would probably buy me toothpaste and oranges for my stocking. My mom has the job for many more years to come!
He bought me a beautiful present though, a white gold locket in the shape of a tear drop. It's so beautiful I haven't taken it off since I opened it. (It helps when you walk around the mall to point things out that you like...tee hee)
Richard was a happy bunny with the Wok I gave him. He just used it tonight to cook what else, Turkey curry lol. We have enough turkey to eat it for weeks.
All in all it was a good christmas. We were back to work today which was a downer. It was quiet and I got alot of work done that had been piled on my desk so it turned out to be a good thing.
New Years eve is coming up this weekend. Richard's friend from work is having a big party so we're heading over there for the evening.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful new Year!
