Hello pals! I hope you’ve had an exquisite week. It’s been a beautiful blur between Christmas and New Years, and I’ve loved all of this time with the crew. We’ve loved gradual mornings, hikes, procuring, nails, studying, and films. I’m positively not wanting ahead to highschool returning, particularly the early morning scramble and hours of homework.

I hope that my pals who celebrated Christmas this week had an attractive vacation. My dad and stepmom have been out of city – my step-grandmother handed away. She was so type and fantastic, and I’m grateful we have been blessed to have her in our lives. We had a low-key Christmas Eve at dwelling with Chinese language takeout and Christmas Chronicles, and I met up with madre for midnight mass. They turned the lights down for Silent Evening and it was the proper strategy to begin the vacation.

The ladies have been up vibrant and early for Santa’a items and stockings, after which the household came to visit for household items, tamales, beans, egg casserole, cinnamon rolls, and the Pilot’s well-known egg nog.

We spent the morning collectively, consuming espresso and eggnog, and exchanging items,

and everybody went dwelling to sit back for a couple of hours.

We took a stroll and dropped off cookies to our neighbors. — I bake for 2 weeks in December and freeze every part. This fashion, it’’s not anxious and we have now a giant assortment of goodies for neighbors and vacation cookie trays. These cookies, these cookies, and peppermint bark are all the time on the listing.

Then, we had 20 individuals over for Christmas dinner and it.was.every part.

Appetizers have been this large cheese board:

(plus a smaller board I positioned on one of many tables for snacking)

Artichoke dip and crackers

ALL the sweets (chocolate bourbon pecan pie, pear pie {that a} good friend introduced over, yuletide log, completely different espresso truffles and cookies)

and for dinner, we smoked two giant natural turkeys, two large grass-fed beef tenderloins, made horseradish sauce, gravy, asparagus, salad, and madre introduced over tacky potatoes. The meat was all from ButcherBox and cooked completely on the Traeger.

You wrap a ton of goodies right into a ball, after which one particular person unwraps it whereas the particular person subsequent to them rolls two cube (die? I don’t know these items). When that particular person hits doubles, the timer stops, and the ball goes to the following particular person. If the particular person unwraps a mini bottle of alcohol, it’s an choice for them to take a shot (or hand the mini bottle to a different prepared grownup to take the shot for them).

Listed here are a few of the goodies I wrapped into the ball:

and the completed product:

It was a day stuffed with enjoyable occasions, good meals, and wonderful items, and as all the time, my favourite half is being with so many individuals we love a lot, on the similar time. I’m so unhappy the vacations are over!!
