We had planned to fly back from Boston on Christmas day and spend the night at the Houston airport hotel. Even though we cancelled the trip to Boston, we decided to drive to Houston anyway and booked a room at the Four Seasons instead. It was so nice to be in a posh hotel for the holiday, and have a nice Christmas dinner at the hotel restaurant, Quattro. It really felt like a vacation!
Dinner was great, it amazes me that I spend so much time with my husband and we still have such great dinner conversations...
An antipasta buffet:
Followed by seafood stuffed flounder (for me):
And then a dessert buffet:
We sampled a little bit of everything...
Afterwards, we hit the bar for a few more drinks and then back to the room, where we were awakened at 12:30 am by a fire alarm!
Our baby basil finally completely died, and these tulips replaced it:
They open during the day and then close up at night!
We were supposed to fly to Boston last Monday, but cancelled because of all the snow and worries about getting back. So, this week we've been shopping, eating, drinking, and mostly just hanging out at home doing nothing.
It's Christmas Eve, and cold outside, close to 50 degrees. Yesterday was warm, in the 60s.
Tomorrow, we'll drive to Houston, have Christmas dinner in a hotel restaurant, then pick up the kiddos for their Christmas morning. Wonder if they will be able to tell that the RockBand instruments have been well used already? I just can't wait to see how impressed they are that we are so good at it!
