Hots and Not
I'm playing Loobylu's game again.
Christmas is hot! This year is the first year The Smurf really gets Christmas and we've been having great fun around here teaching him all about Christmas.
Christmas Tree Ice cream Sandwiches for dessert and my first go at royal icing! Success.
Wonky homemade Christmas Advent
The Smurf getting up every morning to check the advent calendar. Every morning he squeals with delight "Christmas time Christmas time!" "I have a lolly?". Then he gets his advent card out for the day and when asked what it says, he tells us "Christmas Card".
First ever homemade mince tarts. First time ever baking, first time ever eating. I leaned on some locals for their input. Approved, apparently!
Christmas Parties in the backyard (and see first photo, which was some time after the photo above!). Good friends, good food, fun times. The most amazing Christmas Ham, 3 kinds of salad, mango salsa (which I forgot to put on the table!), prawns wrapped with pesto and proscuitto. Double chocolate tart and icecream for dessert with fruit mince tart chasers! And a jar of homemade chilli tomato jam for everyone to take home.
Decorating the Christmas Tree.
Enjoying the aroma of the fresh Christmas Tree and lights and decorations.
Backyard cricket in your undies (The Smurf) with the main blokes in your life.
That's all, no nots this week.
