Merry Christmas to me!!

My son came out to visit for 2 days!
We took him out to dinner, he loves sushi so we took him to Tides for his birthday dinner...Wow, that was really good! He got the Shashimi Quartet and the Skinny Dip, so good! I love the shrimp tempura there and the ahi! After that we went to play bingo and he won the very first game and got 50.00!! How fun was that?!!

The next day I took him over to The Art of Shaving so he could learn some things about taking care of his beard and he got a beard trim and some nice stuff to keep it looking clean and smooth. His wife, Rebecca could not come out as they have lots of rescue, foster animals and someone needs to look after them. She loves Travis's beard so he wanted to make it look nice for her! Sweet!!

We did a little christmas shopping and then came home. I recreated a class I took at Surlatable, it was Tanya's Christmas gift, we learned to make Gumbo and Red beans and rice, peel and eat shrimp, and bananas foster! That was fun, My hubby and Travis thought I was going to burn the house down lighting the rum on fire but I showed them, it went just fine and they loved the dessert! I passed on making the gumbo, this was enough food! Roumalade and Red lobster biscuits were added to the mix.

After dinner we sat around the table and learned how to play Mexican Train Dominos, by the rules, not just our own made up rules! Lots of fun and strategy going on!

I hope Travis and Rebecca and My sister and her husband can come out in the summer for a pool party, that would be lots of fun!
Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you get to be with the ones you love even if it is only for 2 days!
