Oh Hey It's a Canisteo Christmas - Part 1

You guessed it, another Canisteo Christmas!
Up on the roof, the end of December

Happy Birthday Bob.... I guess

At Kimie's studio down by industry city they sing for Bob.  Happy birthday bobbers.
Dad's smoked cheeses, gouda, x sharp cheddar, parmesan, havarti, and as much of a cheese snob as I am I still love this "cheese food" ball of spreadable port cheddar.

everyone got big novelty slippers for xmas eve 

A Christmas eve Japanese nabe pot dinner.  I tried to make it chanko nabe (what sumos eat to get big).  Made my own chicken meatballs (tsukune) too, a lot better than frozen store bought ones.
bob conveniently threw out his back on his birthday lifting beer out of the trunk of the car and thought he could get out of sledding.  Also update I actually was prepared and bought sleds ahead of time on amazon instead of doing it the day of and being left with buying $20 sh!t hardware store sleds that are super thin and fragile 

There they are, the best sleds i've ever used.  Stay tuned and you'll see why.  FYI they are the Slippery Racer Downhill Xtreme Winter Toboggan Snow Sled, Blue and the Slippery Racer Downhill Sprinter Toboggan Snow Sled, Red.  If you are an adult baby man you must get the double sized one $30 because the smaller red one $20 is dooable but too small and you'll be trying to stay in it instead of steering 

hoping for snow (spoiler alert, it happens!).
