Rick and I have had a really fun Christmas week with loads of celebrations. We enjoyed our Friends of Theatre holiday gathering, a delightful indoor caroling party with loads of singing, cookies and smiles. Then, a trip to Detroit to celebrate Rick's cycling pal, TJ's, birthday.
It was at the Dakota Inn, a German restaurant with non-stop piano and singing. And I mean everyone sings, or as they say, "the one place where it's OK to sing with your mouth full!" I had my first sauerbraten and it was delicious!
TJ is pretty much a regular here. So he led the whole restaurant in the Schnitzelbank song, which I don't think anyone got right but was loads of fun!
The laugh highlight of the night was the Twelve Days of Christmas -- complete with props! Our table was the Twelve Drummers Drumming -- and we made lots of noise!
I'm hoping to get around to all my blog pals before Christmas but if I don't, have the Merriest Christmas. If that's not your thing, a beautiful winter holiday season.
Ho, ho, ho from Lizzie and Me!
