48h from now we will be happily stuck in the kitchen preparing all the food to celebrate the Christmas night at home. Now that I write this down it sounds a little crazier that we still do not have all the complete menu decided! and least tested. We are one of those (risky) ones that end each year making our first attempt for a new recipe precisely on that night, because, well, we hope our family can forgive a kitchen failure (hahaha) and mostly because there are usually too much food on the table, so one bad plate won’t ruin it :) We reuse all the extra food the following dinners (lunches are usually spent between grandmas or parents houses) which is quite handy to stick on that do-nothing-but-eat mood. Do you reuse food as well for the following days? Do you have any techniques, like the classic of creating an omelette with several separate leftovers?
What we have already finished are the Christmas decorations at home. This year’s motto is “fill your home with pom-pons” (or should I say yarn?) Hope you like them in the pictures! We have also been lucky to receive the first presents from Santa that are patiently awaiting under the tree. How do we know it is not Biel who brought them? Well, he is still trying that friendship thing with Juno, so one step at a time.
Which are your plans for these days? My mom will be staying with us at home, which brings a big smile in my face just thinking about the chatty hours with her, board games and movies. Seeing it from this other angle, still 48h left!? Come on Christmas bring it all now! :)
DIY pom-pon garland and felt (victory ;P) star
Bender was a little cold so I made a little scarf-blanket for him, which is matchy-matchy with his Santa hat, dapper festive guy!
Look! It is snowing in NYC! ;) Mr. Didplodocus was also feeling the low temperatures in the city.
While in the deco mood we (too rashly?) decided that Biel may feel more welcomed if we gave him some magic woods (hope our strategies to attract more presents are not too obvious)
Friendship in progress…
The DIY tree decorations represent things we like, people we admire or relevant facts in our relationship. We try to create a new one each year.
More yarn to wish you happy merry days!
