Our Christmas Dinner


As promised, here is the post of what we did for Christmas day. I knowww, it's a VERY backdated post but hey, it's better late than never.
Kevin's sister was spending Christmas with her husband's side of the family this year. So, that only leaves Kevin, his mom and me. We decided to skip the usual Christmas dinner at home and went out to eat. Since almost everything was closed for Christmas, we decided to head here.

Yeah, we went for a Japanese buffet! It's supposed to be one of the best Japanese buffets in Pittsburgh. They carry a large spread of sushi, sashimi and all kinds of makis. Not only that, they also have large selection of hot main dishes like roast lamb, NY steaks and a host of other things. There is even a section where you can order various types of fresh seafood and meats where they will be grilled on the spot for you. The food is really good and the selection is good too.

After dinner, we drove around the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights. All the lights are turned on for Christmas, so it's really beautiful. There is a particular house in the North Hills that is exceptionally nice. We would drive by to check it out every Christmas. We call it the "Griswold House" after the house in the movie National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, starring Chevy Chase. Checkout some of the photos we took of that house.

This guy really really decorates his house!! Puts the rest of us to shame. This is what I call big time Christmas decoration! Overall, we had fun spending time with Kevin's mom. Maybe we should make this sushi thing a new Christmas tradition? Hahahaha!!
