Christmas 2009

The boys woke up at 7:00 a.m. They were so excited about the slot car set they got -- but H was mostly thrilled about the letter Santa wrote him in response to his. At 3:00 p.m. we finally got out of our PJs and got ready for our guests. Melissa and I took turns with the courses, and had a great meal. We had sweet potato ravioli.

French onion soup.

Shrimp with bok choy and an Asian Beurre Blanc Sauce.

And chocolate cake and cookies. We also did wine parings, so by this point, quite frankly I forgot to take pictures (updated note: for really good food shots, and a photo of the finished lamb dish, visit Tales of the Elsmo Four). It was a great night, and now, we are looking forward to our trip up to Wisconsin. Merry Christmas.
