Cali Christmas

Before leaving for the midwest for 11 days, we celebrated Christmas at E's parents.


In lieu of a big Christmas dinner (it was a weekday evening) we ate at San Diego's famous Phil's bbq. E was especially skeptical, but both his pulled pork sandwich and my ribs were delish.
I feel a new family tradition coming on!


I got totally spoiled by E and his family this year.
Among my gifts was a 5 1/2 qt Le Cresuset, burlap TOMS, and a beautiful nightstand.


its color is closer to the picture on the left, but there it is in our room!


As usual, Eric's family's mini dachshund, Pookie stole the show:

Boarding the plane for snowy Chicago was a little bit hard. It was almost 80 degrees in San Diego on Christmas Eve!

I forgot you two were Californians! Our Christmas was opposite of yours: the first half on the cold and snowy east coast and the second half on the warm(er) and sunny west coast. Enjoy that new and beautiful Le Creuset! We use ours weekly.
