We did not have anything elaborate this year, just a quiet time at home with family and close friends. My parents were not around for Christmas this year, so we had an early celebration at their place with some friends.
Helene was quite fascinated with the tree ornaments. Last year's Christmas she was still too small to appreciate the decorations, presents etc.
I attempted to make a Christmas meal just for us and this was the result:
Animal pasta which I thought was quite cute :)
Of course, the kids were pretty excited to get their presents! I asked them though, "It's supposed to be Jesus' birthday, how come you girls are getting the presents? Isn't the birthday person supposed to get presents? So they came out with a list of "presents for Jesus" which included being obedient girls, good big sisters and good behaviour! Incidentally, I got this idea from a devotional which I read a couple of days prior to Christmas.
Someone sure enjoyed her pasta. Om nom nom.
From our home to yours, wishing you a blessed Christmas and a happy 2016!
