Lots of Baking

Lots of cooking going on here. The JOY of this Christmas is to discover that all four of us can contribute making much less work. This morning Nels made the lobster casserole, Lou made thumb cookies, Hels made a SUCCESSFUL Buche de Noel. I supervised :)

The menu for Christmas Eve

scallops wrapped in bacon
fig cake & goat cheese
veggies and dip
stilton cheese with fig spread on baguette
mozzarella sticks (kids)

lobster casserole and salad

cookies and port for Santa

The menu for Christmas Day

cinnamon rolls (still have to make those)

leftover lobster for lunch

dinner with friends--featuring roast beef and Buche de Noel

These two tiny friends will be in the tops of the stockings. Sorry for the poor photo--I took it down in the basement. Hels saw me making the red one for Lou and BEGGED me for one, not knowing that I had already made her the green one.

Merry Christmas to all my blogger friends!

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas. I love reading about your life with your girls. It gives a mother of two little ones great hope.

Merry Christmas, Sarah!

Sometime after the holidays, can you let me know the pattern for the tomtens in this post (or share the link)? I would love to have those peeking out of Father Christmas's stockings next year... its never too early to plan!

Been enjoying the season through the eyes of my favorite blogging VTer!

Merry Christmas! I somehow also managed to make a successful bûche de noël, even without supervision :-)
