Merry Christmas

We've been swimming, seen the Christmas lights, picked up all our food orders and done lots of baking. I think we're all ready for tomorrow.

Today we made a chocolate gingerbread house.

The decorations were too much for the slightly soft gingerbread and, after an hour, the strain was showing. It collapsed spectacularly and is now perfectly broken up for eating.

Toby wanted to skip today to get to the part where wrapping paper flies, but once I pointed out that without today, there would be nothing good to eat tomorrow, he gained some patience.

After church in the morning, we'll be having lunch with just us, for the first time ever. We're really going to miss seeing our family, but are happy to have a quiet one.

Merry Christmas to all!

  1. We're having a "core" Christmas too. My cooking skills are being tested. Should probably have perfected crackling and duckfat roasted potatoes before today but we'll give it a go. Merry Christmas friend. Enjoy your rest before your new job. Much love always Janice
