this weekend was our xmas re-do extravaganza!
sean and i were both sick from xmas eve to just before new years eve, so we put the kibosh on spending our first xmas together all miserable-like: sniffly, snotty, hacky, sweaty and grumpy we both were.
so after deadlines were met and work load lightened, we had xmas eve, xmas day and boxing day proper.
started on thursday night, when we went to watch beyond eden, a musical at vancouver playhouse.
friday night was our xmas eve. we cooked dinner at home, watched elf and the classic santa claus is coming to town and opened up stocking stuffers. jonesy went ape with her little prezzies.
it was the first time jonesy ate wet food too. kitty went to town
jonesy LOVED the teddy bear sean gave me as a stocking stuffer
she did things to teddy that i can't even bring myself to type. the next morning, teddy was found laying face down in the middle of the living floor. defiled and discarded.
xmas day saturday, as we drove downtown, we imagined that the streets were quiet, what with everyone spending time with family at home (it wasn't. it was your typical busy saturday out) headed to the cinema to watch daybreakers which was great fun. a different kind of a vampire movie not seen before, with lots of blood, gore and exploding body parts. movie was wicked. i'll definitely be picking that up when it comes out on dvd.
saturday night was dinner with sean's family from out of town at mongolie grill. how great that it worked out that we were visiting with family on "xmas day".
on sunday/boxing day, we had pannekoeks at de dutch. a favourite sunday treat. a couple of BSG episodes as we waited for our breakfast to digest before hitting the pool. (to work off all that chocolate and candy that i had indulged in all weekend)
by sunday night, i could hardly believe that our xmas was over, *snap* just like that. i wished with eyes closed and hands balled up that it could've gone on for longer.
and although xmas was postponed by almost a month, i wouldn't have changed it for anything. this weekend was OUR xmas. everybody else can celebrate on the same day. we like to stand apart.
that being said, next up: st patrick's day in february, valentines day in june and april fools day in september.
