A tree trimming party

It all started with an invite…a  little early but we couldn’t be stopped!

And an empty tree.

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!
