Christmas Eve found us at our favorite and nearest Sushi/Thai restaurant in Grasonville, Maryland called Cafe Sado. I love their modern decor and ambiance. Plus no cooking for Christmas Eve. And an opportunity to get out after three days spent cooped up in the house. Remember the “Now we have only one car” factor.
The kid picked up the calamari with the chopsticks. Both impressive facts. This is also the place where he first discovered dumplings. Had them again.
Later, after a radio broadcast of The Christmas Carol performed by Jonathon Winters, they checked Norad’s Santa tracker to see where in the world Santa was. First it was Spain and then he was in Finland right before bedtime.
Checking Norad’s Santa tracker. Note my laptop/boat anchor behind Mark’s mini.
The moments in the dawning morning, drinking coffee, before the little boy ascends the stairs for the mayhem to begin.
Happy boys and their toys.
And this is me smiling because I got a new laptop. And not too long afterwards, as I sent Christmas greetings to a blogging friend in Ireland, in the middle of writing “lovely holiday”, the L key gave it up.
I began laughing hysterically.
I have yet to set up the new laptop. There’s also a Leapster that requires computer help as well. Meanwhile, I am sticking my finger into the missing keyhole like a toothless hole in someone’s gums.
It’s all good. As I told the Mister, I had no right to wish for anything this year. As the belly baby does his/her last twitching before the big reveal, I am constantly reminded of what having your wish come true really means.
Happy Holidays Hons!
