A Very Happy Christmas

Today has been a wonderful day. My fiancee and I woke up about 8:30 and she made bacon and scrambled eggs for breakfast. Then we opened the presents my parents sent. (We'd already opened the presents from her parents, and already had our presents to each other.)

Then we sat down on the couch and spent the day watching episodes of Ace of Cakes and Mythbusters that I had recorded but we hadn't gotten around to watching. Around 11:30, she started making her family's potatoes au graten. (I grated the cheese, but otherwise was kept out of the kitchen while she cooked.) About 1, I pulled the ham out of the fridge and put the sweet potato casserole in the microwave. About 1:30, we started in on the "Christmas buffet." (Her phrasing, since we just left the food out to nibble on.) Around 7, I pulled the cheesecake sampler out of the freezer to thaw.

We made a huge dent in the recordings, but still have several episodes (especially of Ace of Cakes) to watch.
