San Francisco Christmas

Our first San Francisco Christmas (but not our first one overseas because we were in Washington DC a few years ago) has been great. As much as we’re supposed to miss family and friends and all things New Zealand it was good to have a day of just us doing what we want – even did some washing (Steph would be proud!).

We spend much of Christmas eve on Skype to friends and family – actually a really nice Christmas eve thing to do. The Mister is still hacking and coughing and getting over his ChristmasManFlu but we went for a quick walk outside to get a coffee.

And cooked our traditional Christmas Eve feast – this year spinach lasagne.

We made and took some little ricotta and tomato tarts out to Bev & Dan’s where we feasted with their friends on lots of meat and Kiwi puddings!

We drove through their neighborhood on our way back to the freeway and saw quite a lot of decorated front yards – this was one pretty spectacular.
