• ‘Twas two nights before Christmas and all through the house, every nook, crook and cranny is getting a douse;
    The groceries are stashed in the cupboard and fridge – there is no spare space – not even a smidge!
    The cookies are nestled all snug in their tins and nephews and nieces have cooky-crumb grins
    And I in my PJs, and hubby in his, are just settling down to a deep reminisce.

    Here are some of our favourite glimpses of Christmas 2010:

    christmas cookies
    The Great Shortbread Bake-off! Three family recipes…
    christmas punch
    Best ever holiday punch, plus Aunty Val’s ice star!
    good nuts in a jar
    Vicki’s Hot n Spicy Nuts – ready for gifting!
    cheese n nuts
    The cheese board – yum!
    table setting
    The pre-Christmas concert brunch table – good food, good music.

    And wishing you a joyous, contented and connected holiday season. Here is a little Christmas video card – celebrating relationship and the holidays. Best wishes to you and yours!
