Christmas was a fun time this year at the Eat-Clean House. My daughters arrived at our place early in the afternoon after spending Christmas Eve and morning with their dad. We started in on the gift giving which is time consuming with 5 kids. I got some new training gear (like my goggles :-)) and a great new winter coat. It's easy to get the girls things since they all have the same style.
After gifts my sister and her family arrived. We set into dinner preparations, which included turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, veggie salad, stuffing, homemade bread, Brussels sprouts, and roasted butternut squash soup. Yummy!
My sister prepared a delicious Dutch Appletart for dessert that was topped off with a bunch of fresh berries. After dinner we watched Mamma Mia. What a great movie. We had so much fun singing along to all the old Abba songs.
On Friday we spent the day playing games, walking with dogs, and doing a puzzle. It was a very low key Christmas that I enjoyed very much.
I get to spend a few more days with the kids before they all head off to their respective centers of higher education. We are preparing for a big New Years bonfire which means more cooking and some house cleaning over the next couple of days.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too.
Stay tuned for a New Year's message!
