Hi guys! I hope those of you who celebrate it had a lovely Christmas. We obviously weren’t traveling this year and enjoyed spending the holiday here in the DC area with my family! Here is a look at our Christmas Eve + Day. 🙂
Christmas Eve is our big nice dinner (so we can just relax on Christmas day). Riese obviously had to wear a party dress for the occasion!
We had two turkeys for the occasion – one baked a la my mom and one fried a la Matt using our oil-less turkey fryer!
My contribution was the salad you see in the back – greens + pomegranate arils + feta + walnuts with a balsamic vinaigrette.
Dessert = strawberry cheesecake. Mmm!
First Christmas <3 Can’t wait until she is old enough to get really excited for Christmas!
Christmas day brunch = a casserole (from a neighbor, but it was similar to my Smoked Salmon and Vegetable Egg Casserole) plus some salad and a leftover Pear Ginger Honey Muffin for dessert!
I will leave you with this silly family photo from Christmas day! Matt and I snuck upstairs with Riese and Freyja in tow and came back down and surprised everyone with our matching jammies. Lol! Matt found them online somewhere and we though it would be hilarious. Freyja’s dog outfit is actually just a children’s shirt – her face in this photo is so classic… she’s mortified. When Matt first put on the jammies a couple weeks ago to surprise me with them, he came out in his and then called Freyja to come in behind him from the other room and it was silent – no response. Finally she came walking in suuuuuper slowly – it reminded me of this amazing bunny suit scene in my favorite holiday movie, A Christmas Story! Lol!
Have a good one, guys! 🙂
