Christmas tree I made with Lindt baubles for my Christmas party with my friends.
And so that was Christmas.
And what did you do?
This is my round up of quite possibly, the best Christmas ever.
The Christmas party with my friends:
avocado and cherry tomato salsa wonton cases. It was a great way to get the lunch started as everyone started to arrive.
white christmas mud cakes.
ultimate chocolate pudding...yum!
Christmas Eve - Carols by Candlelight, Sidney Myer Music Bowl
It had been spitting all day, and when we arrived at carols it had cleared up. We settled in, unpacked everything, then the massive down pour hit! It was a case of wet undies all around. Luckily my dad gave me a tarp to take, and we all hid under there for most of the night.
It was much more fun than watching it on TV. I made candy cane cookies and some savory muffins... there would have been photos but it was a bit hard when it was raining!
Christmas Day - Grandma's House
We also had a mini fire when a candle caught alight to some decorations. All my Dad could do to fix this fire problem was to shout "Fire! Fire! Fire!" .... then my uncle promptly went to blow out said fire... thanks Dad... I know I can count on you when the house is burning down!
Miscellaneous Christmas Shenanigans
I got a bit creative helping mum make Pepparkaton (Swedish gingerbread).
The gingerbread house came down, and became a flat pack house. We are still eating it, and it's delicious!
Some of my loot! It was very food related which I loved! Thanks everyone!!!
(Like that plainbow road scarf an luma crochet?? It was made by an amazing girl I've never met, but will meet some day soon. Check out her Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/sunshineravioli)
Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and are enjoying all the leftovers!
