This year I hosted my very first Christmas dinner, complete with turkey and Claire's sweet potato soufflé! E grew up celebrating Christmas, but I basically took in the festivities at friends' or cousins' houses since we didn't really celebrate in my house, so it was a big deal for me to begin traditions for our little family.
We combined Indy's birthday with Christmas since E's mother, father, sister and her husband were all here visiting from the States.
The house was festive, the food was delicious and the air was full of love!
Hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas too!
indy's first words christmas morning: "what is THAT?" as he pointed to the bounty under the tree.
sleepy-eyed: you know i love you when i'm willing to post a bed-head family photo!
the fabulous chocolate/vanilla/pudding birthday cake made for indy by my bff, jenn
indy now equates birthdays with cake...guess it's better than thinking it means "presents"
