Christmas in Provo 2010

We had our first Christmas alone and although we missed our families we still had a lot of fun. Christmas Eve wasn't much, I had to work and Erik did other errands. That night we drove around and looked at lights and then watched Muppet Christmas Carol while we ate California Pizza Kitchen buffalo chicken.
Christmas morning we woke up to full stockings and all our presents. We ate McDonald's parfaits for breakfast while we opened our presents. It was great, Santa brought us everything we wanted and more. Sasha was particularly excited about her wrapping paper fort.
I got anatomy books and yoga stuff among other exciting things and Erik got a drill and guitar stand. We also got gifts from extended family that we loved, a cook book, money, Christmas dish towels,
ornaments and so forth.
We felt very spoiled!
For lunch we went to Denny's!

We also decided to go to Bridal Veil Falls to see how pretty it was with the snow. It was freezing so we had to bundle up but it was worth it. It was surprisingly busy with how cold it was and it being Christmas.
Then Christmas night we made our special dinner of seafood, which we have decided would be a fun tradition (the parfait as well). We made cilantro/lemon salmon with garlic spinach. It was very tasty! Overall, it was an exciting first Christmas alone, making our own little traditions and enjoying each other's company.
