Aotearoa (part 2) January 12, 2010

Posted by Sarah in christmas, family, food, holiday, home made.

Christmas Day 2009.  The first Christmas with our family in 4 years.

We set the table the night before

I made homemade lemonade

My little helpter earnestly filled everyone’s glasses

The chief taste-tester thought the lemonade was pretty good

Then we ate

And ate

And ate

And ate

And ate

I made homemade ice cream and sorbet, proper strawberry jellies, and a hazelnut torte too.  It all got gobbled up before we got any photos, but I can assure you dessert was a hit with the entire family.

I met my sweet little Great-Newphew Felix.

And hung out with Sofia, who was most impressed when she found out that I was the person who had made her beloved Hazel.

Precious little Sacha snoozed away the day, briefly waking up to check out what was happening

And everyone was looking at the camera at once for the obligatory family snapshot.  Incredible!
