Even more Christmas!

We're just trying to extend Christmas as long as possible aren't we? :)

Here is the Buche de Noel that my sister and I made for Christmas Eve. We had to fore go the darling meringue mushrooms because we ran out of time! This was so fun to make! Can anyone say "tradition!!!"?

We used this recipe from Martha Stewart for the cake and frosting. My sis made up the recipe for the filling. It was amazing, the best part of the cake I thought. Mmm! Oh, I am so hungry now!

Here's our table set for Christmas Eve dinner.

We always make Swedish Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes. My sister-in-law made the best foccasia bread. And my sister made this delicious fruit salad. It was so refreshing!

This is our advent log that we light every year. We light the first candle on the first Sunday of December and the last one on Christmas Eve night.

Hope you are all having a most beautiful January!
