Happy Christmas, everyone! I hope that you have some awesome relaxing time to do the things you want to do and be with the ones you love this season. I had to work this Christmas Eve, but I managed to duck out earlier than anticipated and watched B work his magic in the kitchen prep a cornucopia of delicious appetizers: chevre stuffed mushrooms, teriyaki basil meatballs, tapenade, and shrimp cocktail with homemade cocktail sauce. I am such a lucky duck to be married to such an awesome person.
Our Christmases are pretty low key, usually involving lots of homecooked food and movie-watching. And that's how we like it. Decor-wise, I like to keep it simple and mostly cat-proof, so no tree skirts or banners, hanging wreaths or bunting. We learned the hard way. It's also a miracle they haven't jumped on the tree to play with the ornaments! Speaking of ornaments, a few of my favorite ones are these fox plushies and this cute, frosted birdhouse.
I'm off to go watch more Venture Bros and nibble on homemade peppermint chocolate cookies. I hope you and your loved ones have a beautiful holiday!
