Thought I’d give you the last of the 2011 “Christmas”
(Although I am really hoping to get some really juicy New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day pics..)
In the mean time we were cordially invited to my Sister in law
( Mr R’s sister ) and her new husband’s home to celebrate Christmas.
They live in England so we don’t get to celebrate with them very often.
It was great getting together.
He’s a Diamond Geyser he is..
Mr R and his peanut girl just chillaxing..
Speaking of men in our lives.. Grandpa seems pretty happy !
Sneaky one he is…
It’s lovely isn’t it?
Here’s to ya !!!
Next the newlyweds opened up some gifts..
One of the United States.. and other of downtown London.. How appropriate.
Bly me… these blokes are lovely…
That's not really what he said but in my mind.. That's what I'm sure he'd say....
Would you like some cheese and crackers to go with that whine?… ugh.. I mean wine.
In the same shop that Maria found the vintage maps.. I found a set of gorgeous vintage glasses.. Wine, Martini, and Shot…
I have to admit.. I SO….wanted to keep those buggers for my self.. but.. it’s Christmas..
They're newly married.... I gave in.
Then suddenly got all ghetto on us…hmmmm
After dinner…. Gifts … and desserts..
It’s Christmas … what else would you play?
Legend has it that there is a missing scene from the classic
unfortunately it never made it to the big screen.
Forced to languish on the cutting room floor..
Meh… Anyway.. while they pelted each other and regained control of Tokyo…
It was a pretty darn good cup of tea… but....Why is it that after each sip… I felt like I should be saying things like … Ello Govnr… or Pip Pip Cheerio ?!
We had a Wonderful time!! Christmas Part II was one to remember !!
Plans had been made for some of us to meet up again a few days later.. this time for Sushi and a movie..
( Must be all the King of Tokyo they played?)
We ventured out to a place in Brighton called Sagano
I think the owner was a little surprised at how much we ordered.
Maria is preggers.. and not willing to dive into raw fish.
She opted for the Tempura dinner… OMG !!!!
It was a feast for the eyes … as well as the tummy !!
After dinner we waddled over to the theater to see War Horse.
I have to say….The movie is very well done….Some scenes were a bit rough to watch as the horse gets painfully injured, however all in all very good movie.
I give it a rousing two wasabi / ginger laced thumbs up!
I tell you. The Food… The Fun… The Family… The Film.. It all but did me in.
It’s been a great holiday season for sure.. and… It’s not quite over yet.. We are heading over to my brother and sister in laws house for New Year’s Eve.. Followed by Football… Beer and Chili as the main attraction here on Sunday.
It’s not easy trying to pardy hardy at my age…lol
