I spent the morning of Christmas Eve prepping food, and teaching at Y2 Yoga in the afternoon to a group of amazing yogis.
These mini caprese salads were a hit at the party!
My husband (who doesn’t like fish) loved these! Just a sliced cucumber with veggie cream cheese, topped with smoked salmon.
I was asked by my pastor to be a lay reader for the Christmas Eve church service. All went well, except when the lights went out. We each lit a candle and I was walking to light the candles in the congregation… I tripped in the center of the church. I popped up quickly and laughed it off, but obviously people saw me. I forgot my mike was still on, so when I pretended to fall into a man and died laughing, everyone heard. It is awesome to be so human.
All the cousins together on Christmas Eve!
My big gift was this food processor! I am excited to make some new recipes–There are so many I have been dying to try.
Toby and his giant candy cane. He is actually scared of this thing! He refuses to eat it, and runs away if I try to set it near him. If you have a dog that loves rawhides, please let me know! It is all yours.
After the morning of craziness with the kids and Toby, my husband and I got a chance to sneak away to hot yoga. I love practicing with my hubby.
We ended up outside enjoying the amazing weather with a long walk around the neighborhood with Toby and the kids and my niece. After 4 days of cold and rain, I really enjoyed the sun and warm weather. That was the ultimate Christmas present!
We just got back from the movies…Go see Annie. It is fabulous!
I love how we have some of the same traditions year after year, and create new ones too.
Now, for New Year’s Eve planning. I think we are going to lay low and grill some giant steaks.
What are your plans?
