First we have Noah helping Gamma make some Pumpkin-Apple Muffins. He is a good helper!And next is a Potato Crust Asparagus & Ham Quiche, from my friend Pam at For The Love Of Cooking Blog. This was SO delicious! I can't wait to make it again. It holds together so nicely with the potato crust, and is much more figure friendly without the pastry. I also used reduced fat swiss cheese in this recipe with great results.The soft glow of the tree.An attempt to get a picture of Ducey by the sled. And actually, I was hoping to get Noah to put the Santa hat on (thanks Amy for the idea) but he said NO THANK YOU! Some change in table decor.. I cut out holiday shapes out of card stock using cookie cutters, and then glued old sheet music to the shapes for my place cards for Christmas Eve dinner.The placemats are too pretty to be covered up, and I forgot to take a picture without the plates on them. White embossed chargers, with holiday berry plates. Christmas wine glasses, and frosted tea lights scattered around the table. Center piece is a sled given to me by my friend Maryrose, many years ago. I have two pointsettias in it with some greenery. The tea lights are battery candles that flicker. Made biscotti for the first time ever tonight. Chocolate Almond with white chocolate drizzled on top. The boot is a ceramic piece I painted when Drew was a baby. I love this piece and use it every year. .
