So, what did the girls get this Christmas?
Nana and Pop gave them a few small presents and some cash which they appreciate very much!
And we gave them 1 big present each this time.
Miss 13 got Nintendo 3DS XL which was what she wanted and Miss 9 got an iPod touch 4th generation.
What did The Other Half got me for Christmas?
He got me the latest iPad.
The funny bit is that dia yang beria2 nak beli kan untuk I, bukannya I yang beria2 nak, hahahahaha…..
And what did he get himself for Christmas?
He got himself a Sodastream set.
And he’s also still waiting for the right time to buy another present for him.
What kind of present….. I have no idea, hehehe……
Lepas bangun pagi, gosok gigi, mandi mandi, terus lah bukak pressies sambil berborak on the phone dengan Nana and Pop.
And then for lunch, we all jemput a couple of other families untuk makan2 turkey sambil mengeratkan silaturrahim.
Budak2 lah yg seronok sbb dapat main sama2.
But I hidang jugak benda lain instead of just turkey aje, hehehehe….
Tak kuasa weh nak makan turkey tu aje.
I also made BBQ lemon and rosemary roast chicken, roast potatoes, potato gems, homemade bread rolls, buttered beans with walnut gremolata, beans salad, gravy and cranberry sauce.
Ini meja the adults…
While ini pulak meja budak2 and the teens…
Nasib baik with some rearrangements of the furniture, we managed to fit 2 tables to sit 15 people in the dining area.
But 16 lah maximum number of people our house can cope for a sit down at the table meal.
This is my plate.
I terlupa nak ambik the bread roll and terlupa nak ambik beans salad and terlupa nak ambik cranberry sauce to put on my plate masa ni!
But then bila dah ambik semua, terlupa pulak nak ambik gambar, hahahahaha.
Lepas kenyang makan lunch repeat banyak kali, we all sambung pulak makan desserts..
Our dessert table.
What is Summer without cherries and grapes!
The fruit cakes. I made the fruit and nut cake while my friend made the mixed fruit cake.
Another friend brought this choc brownies.
The pudding truffles that I made.
The fruit mince bites and the almond shortbread.
the almond biscotti.
And the meringue with cream, strawberries and blueberries.
Gosh! What did we not have!
Selepas tu semua tersandar kekenyangan and ada yang sampai tertidur2 lagi,
It was a fun day filled with borak2, makan2 and gelak2..
