We were, honestly, torn if we even wanted to do a Christmas celebration this year. We weren’t the happiest of adventurers, we didn’t want to be around anyone, and we just… really weren’t in the celebrating spirit (even Derrian, who tends to push it on CKnight).
But we did a one-on-one meal with CKnight’s sister and enjoyed the simplicity of it enough to finally putting up our tree on Christmas Eve (we weren’t sure it was worth the effort for the longets time).
Then for Christmas Day, we kept it just the two of us. Derrian made a beautiful breakfast (that her mother use to make). Notice the prettiness in the pan, THEN the mess it became all over the floor in a, typical ‘Derrian is in the kitchen’ fashion lol. It still tasted delicious after most of it was saved. Gifts were exchanged and I realize I’m missing pictures, but just imagine all the cuteness of stuffed Pikachus along with a Metal Gear Solid Big Boss PSP that CKnight has had an eye on forever. It was relaxing in the end to be in solitude.
But in the end we decided that we would throw our normal ‘Orphans Christmas of Noms’ and invite our friends over Sunday. A taco bar was served and it was great to be around the people we care about.
