This is a special holiday season as my mum is here to spend December with us. We put up our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving and everyone helped.
The boys got Lego advent calendars this year and they’re always excited to go open it up at the end of each day.
Last year the boys made gingerbread cookies and we did that again this year, but I’ve also decided to make biscotti as I reckon those will be easier to make for the number of people I want to give to!
Holiday eats? Well usually we have a nice big dinner on Christmas Eve. Last year we did a ham with a homemade chunky pineapple sauce, and sides like hasselback potatoes, sweet potato casserole, brussels sprouts. And last year was my first attempt at a bûche de noel. The photos above are from last year’s Christmas Eve dinner.
We always take a walk to the cul de sac behind us, where every house is beautifully decorated for Christmas.
Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!
