We had such a fun Christmas dinner with our friends.  Food, games, gift exchange and lots of laughter!
When we are all so far from family it is a blessing indeed.

Chicken Teriyaki burger = piece of chicken wrapped in egg with delightful garnishes of two seaweed slices.  Yeah, Bob won't ever order this again.  We had to get Magnum bars on the way home to get the taste out of his mouth!
