With all the hustle and bustle - and the relaxing times - and friends and family - I didn't get much done on the blogging scene during December - so let's step back a few weeks and see what was going on.
Christmas Eve - fun and food and family
Don is in charge of Christmas Eve - he picks the menu and prepares the food (well, except for the baking I do beforehand). We have had this Noel tray since the late 60s, we got it in N. California, when we lived in Orangevale. It is perfect for crackers.
We use the vintage Lefton Holly dishes - some we got in California - some we have picked up here and there when we find them at yard sales and thrift shops.
These vintage holly dishes are family treasures for sure - and perfect for the holidays.
Gingerbread pigs - with pink frosting on their backs - plus lots of other cookies and treats
And the christmas tree - with gifts - just waiting for Christmas morning.
