Christmas 2010 has come and gone. It was perfect. Quiet. Wonderful weather. Delicious food. And a Garmin!!
We spent Christmas Eve with some friends and their family. The evening was filled with Chambord Manhattans, cheese platter and wine. We ate a delicious tourtière including homemade ketchups. All and all it was a wonderful evening with great conversations, great laughs and good times. Also, we had to take a cab home.
Christmas day we woke up early. Dani was excited. Santa left a surprise probably because Dani was so good this year. It was a new TV! I got Dani a book, a movie, a belt and a bag of macadamia nuts — to represent a trip to Honolulu in April!
Dani got me a Garmin Forerunner 410! So exciting! A watch to keep my running in line.
Dani cooked a wonderful Christmas breakfast including eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and toast. Orange juice and champagne – although with all the Chambord Manhattans the night before.
We spent the day mostly in pajamas watching TV and just hanging out. Later in the afternoon I started preparing our Christmas dinner – Beef Wellington! Which I am not too proud to say turned out pretty near perfect.
We also went for a walk during the day – it was a gorgeous +5! It was a perfect day!
