It all started with an invite…a little early but we couldn’t be stopped!
That morning we got to work, decorating the apartment and the tree.
But leaving out a couple dozen indestructible ornaments for the kids to put up later on.
We made lots of food: pulled chicken BBQ sandwiches, mulled wine, polenta with cranberries, pumpkin muffins, cheese and crackers, chocolates and more.
Including mint-chocolate brownies with fudgy ganache on top.
Friends came over for food, Christmas music and of course, tree trimming.
The little guys decorated whole-wheat “sugar” cookies.
And ate them.
It was so fun…but a little tiring for super preggie ladies who have no choice but to take to the iPhone while nice husbands clean up.
Here’s to a festive season ahead!
