This was The Year of the Snowman, at least if you believe Vivian's decorating theme. Let's see if you can find the snowman in each of these pictures. Don't strain yourself.

We enjoyed a delicious meal, some nice conversation, and a gift exchange, after which it was time to load lots of containers of leftovers, mine including enough to replicate the meal again later with Robert, once I got back home.
