Despite of the snow!

We were not able to get out Christmas eve and get the boys. It was disappointing for everyone but despite of the snow Jim and I had a lovey Christmas eve - and the boys came out first thing Christmas morning for the gift opening and French toast breakfast.

The tree with the presents under on Christmas Eve.

Our usual Christmas eve snack -- Port, and Purdy's chocolates. Sweet Georgia Browns for me and English Toffee for Jim.

And watching my favourite movie - "It's a Wonderful Life" "Every time you hear a bell ring an angel gets his wings"

Being housebound for these past few days I have been busy backing. I made two large batches of Biscotti - Pistachio and Cranberry and I made Jim his favourite cheese crackers.

  1. That biscotti sure looks great....Yum..Yum

  2. I'm sorry Andrew and Eric couldn't get to your house on Christmas eve because of the snow.

    Your drinks and snacks look yummy! Ruud and I watched "It's a Wonderful Life" many times but not this Christmas.

  3. The biscotti sounds great! Are you sharing the recipe? It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite Christmas movie. We have had tons of snow here in Minnesota, too. Just keeps coming!
