Today, we (mom, dad, and I) relaxed and listened to music at home while Liz was working some.
We also opened up a Swedish chocolate box, and I gladly ate a bunch of pralines while we were having fika.
Once Liz was done, we all headed to the Grove Park Inn, a luxury hotel that opened in 1913, where plenty of celeberties have stayed when visiting Asheville, where they have a National Gingerbread House Competition. The rule is for everything to be edible. Pretty amazing, I think. (The Santa has hair..just the crappy light outside that makes it look like he hasn’t. Hmpf.) We also checked out the Christmas lights on the beautiful houses/neighborhood of Montford, and ate a yummy, early dinner in West Asheville at one of our favorite restaurants – Walk.
We ended the day with hot cider in front of a Christmas movie.
