Erik got a pizza stone, a music making machine that he wanted, a new hockey bag, and a toy remote helicopter. haha! He also got a gift card to shape his surfboard, a slack line, and some computer parts.
We were far from our families but we were able to give wonderful gifts to one another. We were able to FaceTime with our iPad with everyone, too. So, we got to "be" with them yesterday!
Evie, of course, waiting for hers to drop.
We had WINE and home brew!
Check out my little wine glass slipper. It looked like a Santa Stocking!
We had crab, red pepper, cheese stuffed mushrooms.
We moved onto crab stuffed shrimp and green beans with shallots. We stopped here, well except for dessert. We had lobsters to eat for dinner, too. We were just too stuffed, so we decided to save them for dinner this week.
For dessert, Erik made Egg Nog ice cream.
I made banana cream pie. You will notice that the crust is quite a mess here because it was a pre-made crust that broke but it tasted wonderful! haha
We watched two movies yesterday. First up - Limitless with Robert DeNiro & Bradley Cooper. This movie was pretty good - action packed and held my attention. However, I don't what this movie was really about. You know how movies have their true, underlying meaning. I haven't thought about this one enough to think about what was really going on.
Take Me Home Tonight. A Pseudo 80's movie. This one had some funny moments. I love Ana Faris and the "friend named Barry" was probably the funniest in the movie. I wouldn't recommend this one. It was like Empire Records meets American Pie.
Well, we had a really great Christmas. It is so great when the three of us get to be home, together. It really is a blast to be together and enjoy the day.
