Sorry for being absent yesterday, but after getting in at 2AM, I didn't have time to get a post up before work.
Christmas here was wonderful. We had a great time with family and friends, and everyone truly seemed to enjoy the gifts the received. (I love the robe I got, and can't wait to play the White Knight Chronicles game hubby got me. He also surprised me with Christian Kane's House Rules CD. My Zune will be updated and I can listen through the sound system with my new dock. And the Colt's wear I got will be making an appearance this weekend.)
Sunday we went to Albany to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Each year I wonder what they will do to make the show bigger and better than the year before, and each year I am amazed. It truly is an awesome show. (We find sitting towards the back is the best seats so you see the show and aren't in the show!-- this also allows for less expensive tickets, too!)
I really enjoyed the changes to this years show. There were a few new songs, as one of the usual singers wasn't there. While I enjoyed hearing the other songs, I really missed hearing him sing.
The drive home was a bit challenging. It was snowing in sheets (yeah, I know- I never saw it do that before either). Our usual 2 to 2 1/2 hour trip turned out to be about 3 hours (not so bad, but when you roll in at 2 AM and have to get up for work at 7...) Normally I would have slept most of the trip home, but I wanted to be an extra set of eyes while hubby drove.
If you get a chance, check out TSO (you probably know their two most famous songs- Christmas Eve Sarajevo (the one that started it all when they were Savatage) and Wizards in Winter (the one made famous with the commercial with the house lights)).
Hope you all had a great Christmas. I'll be posting a breakfast recipe on Thursday (I used if for Christmas)- thought you might want to try it for New Years!
