Wow - its been a busy week. Christmas parties on the weekend, a Christmas Eve dinner party, Christmas Day lunch and Boxing Day get-together. The Christmas Tree has filled the house with that distinctive seasonal scent and the fridge is overloaded with too much food. The mantlepiece is decked out in tinsel, the verandah and garden path twinkles with sparkling lights. I've been busy making paper cut tree decorations and hand-painting Christmas cards along with cleaning the house and preparing several festive feasts.
So here is a glimpse of the various Christmas Celebrations...
Christmas Day was cool and misty, the rainy weather and grey skies making it seem a winters day - perfect for a traditional Christmas Lunch at Mum and Dad's place. The turkey was cooked in the Weber BBQ as per usual and there's Christmas Pudding to finish. An appetiser of cheesy french gougeres and smoked salmon and brie tartlets for a light evening meal rounded out the day.
So that's a snippet of our first Christmas in our new home, the first of many to come.
Merry Christmas everyone!
