Christmas 2014 is winding down. Ours was a low key affair. Just our family of three and Nana, the world’s greatest Mother-In-Law.
We slept in and checked out our Santa gifts and then just chilled out with coffee.
Logan stayed in his pajamas all day. He deserved it. He had a very successful first semester in his new school with amped up academics compared to his old school. So, what the heck. Stay in your pj’s all day Logan.
Nana came over with her two dogs and we exchanged gifts. No big expensive items this year. I got two more cameras. I think have more cameras than anyone I know. One was a sports camera kind of like a Go Pro. Hopefully more on that later. The other is a Fuji Instant Camera kind of like the old Polaroids. It is a hot item among teen age girls and me. It makes very small low fi pics and if you know me, that is right up my alley. Here are a few examples.
We didn’t smoke a turkey. Heather made a breakfast casserole. Lots less fuss. We thought a lot about our family elsewhere. My family was in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Colorado Springs, and Wisconsin. Heather had family in western Oklahoma and north central Texas. We also thought about family members who are not around any longer.
The pets always provide a little comic relief. They always have that look like “what is going on/”
Later in the evening we moved the show to Nana’s house. Heather made New Mexican style flat enchiladas with green chile sauce and of course an egg on top. They are kind of like regular enchiladas except not rolled up and are very good. It was a big treat when I was a kid. And of course they come with a fried egg on top. We finished off the evening with a fierce game of Farkle. I mouth off a lot during such games and enjoy other people trying to get their revenge.
Anyways, this Christmas went pretty well. How was yours? I want to know. Also, have you ever had flat enchiladas?
