A Glimpse into My Foxy Christmas

Hey Guys!

So as this year draws to a close I wanted to share a few photos from my rather hectic Christmas day. We have our Christmas routine down to a science now and I kind of love it. It involves 3 families, a few animals, lots of driving but also lots of presents and as the photos will show too much food. Also, thanks to my husband for all these awesome photos. I was far too busy eating.

I love a Christmas tree with mountains of presents underneath. Best sight ever.

Does anyone else get sad thinking of the moment all the decorations are packed away?

Oooo Blurry lights….so arty

I think my favourite part of Christmas is all the nibbles. Cheese and salami and crackers, Oh my!

I also love bringing blue cheese to parties cause no one else likes it which leaves more for me!

Spider is not impressed by Christmas. Not at all.

A day of family means wine is a necessity. Just kidding. But not really.

Meet cookie the devoted yet extremely scruffy jack russell.

Each time I spell Poinsettia correctly I give myself an invisible pat on the back.

Watching kids open presents can be extremely satisfying. The end result is a wrapping paper bomb site.

A better combination than tomatoes and fresh basil does not exist. Except maybe peanut butter and jam.

A fresh take on an old classic (Waldorf salad)

This salad was amazing. I was fed so much good food its not even funny.

The best part about a Kiwi Christmas? The ham.

This had whiskey in its glaze. It was fantastic.

Okay I spoke to soon…The pavlova makes a worthy competitor for the ham. It wouldn’t be Christmas without one.

Our Christmas also involved turkey, a very cute baby, pancakes, our car deciding to break yet again, terrible Christmas jokes*, a hilarious game to end the evening and a game of mini golf to round off boxing day (which I very much won, highest is best right?).

What did your Christmas entail?

*My personal favourite: What do you get if you eat Christmas decorations? Tinsilitis! (okay, its funnier with a couple of glasses of wine I admit)
