Ghost of Christmas Past
…considering it was last week!
The first part of Christmas Eve, I baked cookies (ginger snaps and pumpkin cookies!) and cuddled Marco. We spent the afternoon with the Gomers. Marco had fun opening presents and playing with Belle.

Such a ham
Marco got some very cute outfits, and Tim received two Blu-Ray movies he wanted. I was very excited to open my present and find The French Laundry Cookbook by Thomas Keller! I used to work at Bouchon Bakery, and was lucky enough to have a beautiful anniversary luncheon with Tim at The French Laundry. OMG, AMAZING! Most of the recipes are a little too difficult for my culinary skill set, but there are a couple of things I want to try.
After presents, we had lunch from Picante (mmm!) and let the babies take a nap. We headed to San Jose around 4 to my aunt and uncle’s house for my family’s celebration. Marco was kissed, cuddled, and entertained by my mom and sister, as well as my cousins, aunts and uncles. A few of my uncles were…tipsy, to say the least (LOL) and became quite talkative. Very funny. Tim, Marco, and I drove home later that night, so we could enjoy Christmas morning alone.
Here’s the cookies and milk, complete with bites taken out of them…
Santa’s been here…
Tomorrow I’ll post the Christmas Day pics!
