|Our Christmas Tree!|
SMS started our Christmas 2015 with a special Christmas Eve dinner request- Peking Duck! We went to the Dim Sum restaurant on Castro and had a delicious Peking Duck dinner along with Wonton Soup. It was really delicious. The place was packed but we got our dinner in a reasonable amount of time. It sounded like there were some other, unhappy diners but we were pretty set and definitely happy with our meal.
Christmas morning came and I was super-spoiled by SMS. I had put my Garmin back under the tree and I also got a Narwal t-shirt and It Is Right to Draw Their Fur: Animal Renderings by Dave Eggers. I also got a Santa Hat! For SMS, I got a hiking hat with extra neck sun protection, Kona coffee and a “vintage” Japanese beer poster. He’s hard to shop for and I try to take notes during the year. Currently, we’re eying a super-chunky wool blanket so maybe we’ll have a big joint New Year’s present!
After Christmas morning and some breakfast, we hung out during the day. We went out to Eagle Park to fly our drones. That was a lot of fun! It really is so fun to have a toy to play with on Christmas, even as an adult!

That evening, we went to see the new Star Wars in 3D. It was pretty good. I enjoyed the references to the original trilogy and I’m slightly enthralled by the “Who are Rey’s parents?” theories. I’m not sure that I need to see it again but I will definitely see the next movie when it comes out!
