Katrine was given the best health assignment ever – make a 3 course meal from scratch for your whole family taking into account my food allergies and celiac…well they each had to chose a health issue and she chose those. She also wanted to challenge herself and produced lentil & veggie soup, GF chicken potpie with homemade pastry and fruit parfaits. It was delicious.
It began with a fun Christmas Eve service. The Junior choir did a great job and Elspeth sang her heart out. The girls were both great in the play and the play itself was wonderful. Home to set out snacks and stockings before bed.
Santa did a great job of bringing what the girls had wanted. Fluffy, pink unicorn and unicorn slippers and it was the start of a theme for one of the girls.
Glenn’s mom arrived in time for church service (we realised a long time ago that the girls do best on Christmas – and by that I mean, have more fun- if the day is broken up). After some spiced cider it was home for lunch and presents, another break outside in the snow before presents were enjoyed. Then dinner and cuddles. No crackling fire in the fire place because it was too warm but we did watch Miracle on 34th Street.
On Boxing Day my parents headed home and we picked up Glenn’s mom for his extended family’s celebration. The next day was our final day of Christmas which took us to Glenn’s brother and his fiancee’s house for a most delicious turkey dinner.
