Dancing into the New Year with Jennifer

Jennifer and I went to her friends Nathan and Melissa's house for dinner which also included Jennifer's friend Amanda. Nathan barbecued some hamburgers and chicken. I had the chicken. Jennifer had made Caesar salad. I have been spoiled by Jennifer. Jennifer makes a great Caesar salad. So when I go to restaurants and get a Caesar salad it is not as good as hers.

Jennifer and I then went to SSQQ to dance into the New Year. There was appetizers plus complimentary soft drinks, wine and beer. Champagne, Noise Makers, and Silly Hats at Midnight. There were 2 rooms for dancing. The dances included West Coast Swing, Salsa, Waltz, Cha Cha, East Coast Swing, Western 2 Step, Foxtrot and Tango. Jennifer and I danced a lot. And at midnight, we toasted and drank champagne which was followed by a nice New Year kiss from my pretty girlfriend. What a fun night.

I went up to see my girlfriend Jennifer. I did not see her last weekend since I was in So Cal. While I was in So Cal I was craving a Freebird burrito for some reason. So when I picked Jennifer up from work/school I asked if she was in the mood for a Freebird. She said sure so we went. That was a good burrito.

Family Gathering

I went to Souplantation with DD and Mom. I then spent some alone time with Mom, which was fun. I then with Mom to meet AD, JK and DD at Nana and Bonnie's house to play Scrabble. Nana does the crossword puzzles in the newspaper all the time so when she plays this game she usually kicks everyone else's butts. So when one of us actually beats Nana, it is an accomplishment. I actually beat her once. This time JK did. Then back to DD's and talked with AD and JK until 3a.

My Close Friend

Today I went to see my close friend Kimberly. It was nice to see her. I showed her the pictures I have taken since the last time I saw her. We then did some music together. I miss playing piano for someone with a great singing voice like Kimberly's. We went though some of the ones we used to do and also did some new ones. It was nice spending the day with her.

Happy Lighted and Decorated Tree Day

AD, JK, DD and I went to Marcine (my Dad's sister) and her husband Mike's house for the Christmas dinner party. Now I mean a party. Mike's brothers come along with their wives and kids. This year there were at least 22 people that came. Dinner is always buffet style. We then to the white elephant present game. I was number 14. Last year during the game there was a wrapping paper ball fight, so this year Michelle (my cousin) and I grabbed some wrapping paper, crumpled them into a ball and started throwing them at people. Thus starting the wrapping paper ball fight. It was a really fun evening.

Happy Lighted and Decorated Tree Day!!!!!!

Wesołych Świąt

This year it was AD, JK, DD, Mom, Nana, Bonnie and I. After dinner we did something new. It was something JK had suggested which was that each of us had to do something creative. JK played the recorder and AD accompanied her on his drum. Mom played the guitar, I also played something on the recorder and played something together with Mom. AD played an electronic piece about how Mary and Joseph might have felt this night. Bonnie and Nana had created a holiday crossword puzzle. I called my girlfriend Jennifer and we did ours together.
For the traditions we do on Christmas Eve click on last years entry.

Hanging Out

AD, JK and I went to the Guitar Center since AD does not have one back home. We did what we always do when we walk into the keyboard room. We both start improvising with each other. It was fun. We then went to the grocery store so JK could make some stuffing. Then hung out at the house.

My Brother Came Home

My brother Adam came in this afternoon so DD, AD, JK, Mom and I went to Claim Jumper for dinner. I am so use to coming home and having Adam already here instead of him flying in. AD, JK and I are staying at DD's house. It is cool because we can have those late night conversations and then just walk into the next room and go to bed. It is nice to be home.

The College Christmas Party

This year the college Christmas party for the faculty and staff was at the Fish Tails restaurant. I of course had to bring my girlfriend Jennifer. I wanted to bring her to have some nice company and, ok, to also show her off. She said when I asked her to come "So I am your ornament for the evening." I would say a very shinny ornament. She looked very pretty and wore a long, soft, suede looking skirt. Everyone seemed to like her. Even the president said she looked lovely.

The evening itself was ok. The food was buffet with ham and beef but not fish. I was surprised. This is a fish place. There were 2 rooms people were in and they all had to bunch into one room during the announcement of the door prizes. I won one of the door prizes, a poinsettia which I gave to Jennifer. It was still a fun evening.

Choir Party

This year the choir Christmas party was at the old Purity Ice Cream store. It is now a house owned by the parents of one of my choir members. Her mom is a caterer and still uses original big kitchen. Her dad makes margarita in a bag with his company Lt. Blender. It was a great party with lots of desserts.
