This Christmas we decided to visit family earlier this month and spend the actual holiday at home. We didn't want to spend it fighting the traffic getting home (nothing restful about that). I'm happy we did because the weather hasn't been all that great. It's been cold and raining. However, it does give that winter feeling that goes along with Christmas. The past few years we've been in Texas and it doesn't feel much like Christmas when it's sunny and in the high 70s. This year seemed a bit more festive.
We had Christmas morning at our house and then met a friend (who's an international law student) for a Chinese Christmas dinner. She was planning on spending Christmas alone this year (her 2nd Christmas in the United States). Well, we couldn't have that so we treated her to a Chinese feast. We had Peking duck, seafood noodle soup, Sweet & Sour Chicken, fried rice, etc. We had so much food that I'm still stuffed thinking about it, Ha!
My husband also surprised me with a new iPad 2. I'm typing from it at the moment. Trying to learn how to use it. Very similar as my iPhone but there's still new things to learn. It's got a pink cover and all. Love him! Also, he gave me more Barbies. I collect retro Barbies. I'll share pictures with y'all. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as well.
