dick's for dinner. a christmas tradition

of course we went to dick's for christmas eve dinner!  it's one of our favorite traditions- and least expensive!  we have to rally pretty early, as of course the dick's crew wants to get home to their families too.  but an early dinner means we get to enjoy so much more of the evening!
as usual, we laid out table cloths, napkins, candles.  as usual, we all dressed up.  as usual, nobody even gave us a second glance!

after dick's we were off to peter's party and then to home  pretty darn early, as the kids noticed santa was already in california (santa tracker by NORAD).  they did not want to be awake if ol'kris kingle showed at the door for they know that santa only comes to houses where the kids are asleep.
christmas morning was full of fun and cheer, and we enjoyed a low key year.  dinner at lincoln and nicola's was the highlight-  such a lovely house, a great spread of food, and so much fun with our family- by blood, by marriage and by long time friendships.  i really did find such joy in the day as i looked at my life, my family, my friends, the city i live in.  we are fortunate.
