Turkey and Latkahs... of course

I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas with all your loved ones around and that you enjoyed sharing your kids magic (unless, of course, you are the actual kids). We had a wonderful holiday spending time with the family where we were swinging our crackers to White Christmas and lighting the channukiah singing Maor Tzur.

For me, the holidays are of nostalgia and traditions, giving plenty and placing a smile, creativity and inspirations. Its a time for love and laughter, board games and great tv. Cold turkey sandwiches and Quality Street. Glasses of Baileys and spoonfuls of trifle. And children. Its all about the children.

We started the holidays with making chocolate rice crispies cakes... for the reindeer's of course

...then a gingerbread house and mince pies... for Santa of course

...checking the tv guide... of course

...and no Christmas would be the same without yarn slipping through my fingers, so what better opportunity than to start the crochet granny square baby blanket that's intended to gift.
