Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas Eve! We're enjoying a quiet holiday at home together. Everyone is getting over bad colds which started at the tail end of last week (we pretty much dragged ourselves to the finish line to wrap up school and other activities before the break; it was sort of pitiful). But we're mostly on the mend now and looking forward to time off from school and work, some fun plans, good things to eat and drink, and much togetherness.

I just finished icing and decorating my Christmas cake; my first attempt at working with fondant went reasonably well. They probably won't ask me to appear on Nailed It!, anyway. I'll show it to you soon. We're going to slice into it tonight after dinner. I'm making chipotle/green chile/vegetable enchiladas tonight, and crab cakes for Christmas dinner, as well as a challah French toast casserole for Christmas breakfast. We also have snacks and appetizers; I'm particularly looking forward to shrimp, nuts, and all the cheese.

There is a possibility of snow later this week - two separate snowstorms may come through here and that's just the most exciting thing we've heard in a long time. Some of us are losing our minds with anticipation; others are merely looking forward to having a reason to stay close to home. Whatever happens, we're happy to be here together.

I wish you and your loved ones are very happy holiday!

  12. A belated Merry Christmas Jennifer, and Happy New Year to you and your family. I hope you're all better now. Christmas always seems to be the season for illness for us too. I hope your Christmas cooking went to plan, it certainly sounded delicious. I am very much hoping for snow photos too, we've barely had a hard frost here! xx
