I hope everyone had a nice Christmas Eve and Christmas Day…or however long your Christmas lasts. We are officially undecorated and back to normal. As soon as Christmas is over, our tree is down and our decorations are put away, onto the next holiday!
We sure had a house full for a few days but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The days were filled with eating, card playing, gift opening and movie watching. Here’s a little peak at what Christmas at the Laroche’s is all about!
My parents and brother arrived on Christmas Eve and we had a nice (and easy) spread of Spiral Ham and Homemade Mac-n-Cheese. The table was finished with Green Depression Glass inherited from my Great Aunt.
Christmas morning I made an easy spread of Challah Bread French Toast on the griddle and we were off to open gifts! Naturally, my pile is the largest….I must have been a GOOD girl.
We had some munchies for apps but the real center of Christmas was the main attraction. We cooked a delicious Beef Tenderloin and Shrimp Oscar with Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese drizzled with honey and a side of Green Beans. I mean seriously, drool! And a HUGE thank you to my Mom who did the dishes – doing dishes after Kevin cooks is never a fun task. <3
If you follow my Instagram, you would have seen these babies. My Grandmama’s famous Cream Puffs. Her recipe was a bit vague so I tried…they were OK but nothing like hers. Better luck next year!
Of course, no Christmas is complete without Zoe being spoiled…the little princess that she is!
Back to work and back to reality…but really back to getting everything straightened up for the arrival of Baby L! 11 weeks left….I’m excited – not really nervous yet. Ready for he or she to be on the outside and to see what this little one has in store for us and the rest of our lives. <3
