It took very little convincing of the Actor when I suggested that we spend our first married Christmas at home just the two of us. It just didn’t sound fun to go and spend Christmas Day driving all around western Washington to see random family members and watch them frown when we had to leave to go see other family members. I don’t know why they’d frown. We’re not that exciting.
We got up around noon, and opened presents while listening to the Christmas station on Pandora. I got the Actor Pokemon Y for this 3DS and he spent most of the day playing it. It looks really cool. I also go him a fuzzy blanket because it’s freezing in our apartment, a book on auditioning, Now You See Me, and Nowhere Boy. He got me The Princess Bride, Monsters U, Kirby’s Epic Yarn for the Wii, the soundtrack to Frozen, and Lana Del Ray’s Born to Die album. I love her.
After that I made orange rolls for breakfast/lunch.
I watched Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade on YouTube after that, which made me really happy because I thought I would have to miss it this year since we don’t have cable. It made me really want to go to Disneyland again. I hope we can soon. It’s been over a year since I was at Disneyland.
I made ratatouille and chicken cordon bleu for the Actor while watching an old House of Mouse Christmas special and Elf. If you’ve never made ratatouille it’s delicious and easy. I think I’ll add mushrooms next time though, because mushrooms make everything better.
We spent the rest of the night baking an apple pie while watching Lincoln and Monsters U. I watched an internet Christmas countdown clock go from “merry christmas” to “363 days 23 hours 59 mins.” Time to get ready for next year. That’s actually not a bad idea to get all of next year’s presents now, but I’ll probably wait until November like I did this year.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and are ready for the new year. I know I’m not!
