Baking up a storm

Ah, the satisfaction of a good day's Christmas Baking. Mr Eight-year old and I had a lot of fun and we now have ready, for Yuletide consumption, a Pavlova, Christmas fruit mince pies, mini-pecan pies and two Christmas Stollen. The house smells delicious.

Mr Eleven-year old created these miniature marvels in marzipan...


The house is a symphony of Chrissydom.
Santa's plate has been lovingly prepared with fruit pies, a magic elf chocolate, glass of milk (I told them Santa wasn't allowed booze because he'd fall off his sleigh), and carrots for the reindeer.
Two extremely excited little fellas are trying to get to sleep...

Merry Christmas to you all.

God Bless,
Vanda

Happy Christmas to you and your family, Vanda - Mr. Seven year old's marzipan fruits are seriously impressive! (Did Santa get one to fortify him on his travels?). Love, Claire x

Thank you everyone.

I love Christmas, and the fun it brings. It is a magical time for our family - it certainly brings out my inner child!

Happy holidays to you all.
