Holiday Dinner and Gifts!

Last night we went to dinner at Shiro's in South Pasadena. It was an early gift exchange as we will be apart on the actual day. The food was yummy, the company delightful and the presents were over the top.

Meghan finally received her Pomatomus socks. I had kept them here until she was sufficiently healed from a skiing accident that occurred last February and then reconstructive surgery to her knee and a very long recovery. Ubermom didn't want to be responsible for a slip and fall accident.

Julien loved his "his birthday scarf" and said it would be most appreciated next week when he travels home to France.

There were other surprises, large and small. Meghan said that she would like to have a hat, which gave me the opportunity to attempt the Koolhaas Hat from Brooklyn Tweed. What a fun knit that to follow.
Greg, rascal that he is, noticed me looking at a particular designer's rings a while back and knocked me out with a very lovely citrine ring.

Meghan and Julien have found the perfect gifts for us...a Tamron 18-200mm lens and a 2 gig usb flashdrive filled with 509 beautiful pictures from their recent California adventures.

Spookie, the quasi-Maine Coon cat, is really enjoying the cold weather. He seems to have more energy to run around in the yard. In the evening, he jumps into his bed in front of the fire, arranges his toys and sacks out.
