Thoroughly enjoyed the day. It was the first time our older son completely understood the ‘presents’ concept and his enthusiasm was contagious. I did what I enjoy most on any holiday: Cooking. Two meals with copious snacking in between.
Pancake brunch featuring outstanding sausages along with fresh fruit and a comically small yet remarkably delicious roast beef provided by my mother in law.
Dinner was homemade lasagne that turned out rather wet but satisfying and sautéed pork chops that were surprisingly tasty for such a reasonable price.
KUSC Classical Christmas in the background all day long, a bottle of wine, and a six pack of beer helped keep the mood merry.
Yuka took Ren out to deliver chocolates to a friend’s family and two Skype appointments should help us feel connected to our loved ones across the ocean.
Merry Christmas, truly.
