Christmas this year was actually really good.  On black friday I ordered my Christmas gift which arrived quickly.  I am so looking forward to using this Ninja kitchen system .

I also ordered a new Christmas tree from Balsam Hill.  I loved our little trees and lit garland from last year but unfortunately they are in storage in Jacksonville and I didn't want to drive up there and get them.  We bought all of our decorations at Michael's.  I think it tuned out pretty.  All of these small trees that I have bought over the years is going to be so pretty when we buy a house.  All I will have to do is buy a large tree.

December 21 was my work Christmas party.  It was a lot of fun.  We had wraps, chips, veggie platter, fruit platter, and desserts.  We played the white elephant game and I ended up with an aromatherapy neck and shoulder wrap and russell stover candy.  From Dr Reddy I got a $50 gift card to Carrabba's and russell stover candy.  From Missy I got a mini battery pack that charges my iPhone.  This will be great for the parks.  From Allison I got Mickey Mouse socks, candy, and a card.  

Bryan's sister sent us a card and candy in the mail.  My Dad sent us a Red Robin gift card.

The ER doctors and hospitalists gave the hospital a food truck meal.  I got a chicken bowl and it was delicious!

Bryan gave me a $30 gift card to iTunes.  His Christmas gift was all of the clothes that he bought on the cruise.  He got 5 shirts.

On Christmas Eve we stayed home and I made tomato bisque with french onion grilled cheese sandwiches.  For dessert I made brownies.  Yum!

Christmas day we slept in then headed to Disney Springs.

Disney Springs was packed.  It was almost miserable.  It also ended up being a cold night.  Bryan didn't dress appropriately so we went to Volcom and bought him a jacket.  He also got a hat to match.  We had 9pm reservations at Paddlefish.

We started our meal off with salad for me and clam chowder for Bryan.  They also brought bread with honey butter out.  For our entrees we both got shrimp and grits.  Everything was delicious!  We did not save room for dessert.

After dinner we had 2330 tickets to Star Wars The Last Jedi.  I got us tickets in the Dolby theater where you experience more sound and a crisper screen.  Unfortunately the seats were not that comfortable. They didn't recline all the way back.  Not really worth the extra money we paid.  The movie was awesome!

Back tracking a little here.  Before dinner we went shopping. I had the intentions of buying a new Dooney but I also really wanted the new Pandora floating locket necklace with the mini disney charms.  So voila.....

I love it!  Merry Christmas to me.

We did not get out of the theater until after 0230.  It was so neat to walk through Disney Springs without anyone there. 

All in all we had a great Christmas.  I still miss those days of being home and spending it with family and friends.  But I think we make the best out of it down here.
