It's been a bit busy here today as DH and I get ready to have our family (and a few extra people) Christmas Eve dinner. It's become a bit of a family tradition to celebrate on this night and it's always a fun, sometimes noisy celebration. For a few years we've had a BBQ dinner but I know that everyone prefers a hot roast dinner, so that's what we're having tonight. I've been very fortunate that the day isn't nearly as hot as the previous days. The plan had been to cook the beef in the slow cooker on the verandah but it's cool enough to have it on the kitchen bench.
He hehe...our doors look like they have one round eye and one rectangular one!
Lastly I would like to wish everyone who reads my blog, the very best for a wonderful Christmas. May your Christmas be filled with peace, joy and love. Thank you to those of you who leave comments; they really make my day when you do... Here's a card that I did especially for all of you. (the site is safe)
|Over the years I've come to really love the poinsettia as a symbol of Christmas....|
|If our guests come in the back gate, we have a wreath at the back steps to greet them as well...|
|This photo only shows some of the gifts for our 12 guests tonight...|
|My friend Pamela made me 2 new tablecloths for Christmas and added some lovely deer table decorations...|
|That same friend also made me this wreath in 2 of my favourite colours (hand dyed with silk paints)|
