What a lovely Christmas Eve! We usually go to a friends home but this year we decided to stay home and have a dinner party. Here are some photos of my tablescape.
Richard and me before we left for Church.
We enjoyed a lovely service at church and then headed home for our guest to arrive. I love the tradition of "Christmas Crackers", so I made sure everyone had one. Inside are little trinkets and paper crowns. Here are Alyssa, Dodi, Richard and John reading the riddles contained in the crackers. We had a lot of laughs trying to guess the answers to the riddles.Here are Rob, Kerry and Scott being silly with their paper crowns on their heads.
Truly, it was a really wonderful evening filled with love, laughter and good food. We feasted on delicious salad, rolls, twice baked potatoes, barbecued tri-tip, salmon, broccoli and Bearnaise sauce. Dodi made a super yummy oatmeal & applesauce cake with cream cheese frosting. It was very dense and full of flavor. I went to bed with a full tummy, sore cheeks from all laughter, and a very happy heart.
Happy Christmas Eve!
