Our First Christmas

(Mary Clare Writing) On Christmas Eve we hosted Dan's family to celebrate Christmas, but mainly to celebrate Dan's birthday (which he happens to share with baby Jesus) (Editor: We have a lot in common ;-) ). I made linguine with shrimp and scallops, but we also had a bunch of hot antipasto from a good local restaurant. We had a big Napoleon cake for Dan and he opened his ipod touch (Editor: It's Awesome!). Here are some pictures of our place (& our tree). Things are obviously looking a lot better around here when compared to last year!

We spent Christmas day with my family and a lot of time since then playing Rock Band 2 for the Wii. We have a band...Dan sings and I play the drums.
On Dec. 28, we took a trip to the Christmas Open House at the Legionaries' seminary in Westchester. They have a beautifully decorated room with a nativity and other artwork and the excellent seminary choir sang some traditional carols.

New Year's Eve was at my brother's place. He and his wife are great cooks, even when they're trying to do something "simple" like lasagna. We had a fun time playing games. I'm awesome at charades :)
