A Happy Yummy Christmas Celebration!

Hello, friends, thank you for your Christmas wishes!

As usual, we celebrated this year's Christmas at my sister's place with lots of munching, chewing, talking, laughing whilst savoring the delicious Christmas dinner. It is my niece's sixth birthday too, so each year, she gets double presents during Christmas, and she's thrilled to bits! Here's some photos taken.



Presents around the lovely Christmas Tree


Our Christmas Menu.... oh...oh, the 'r" is missing from "Starter"...my BIL is probably too hungry when he is writing this!  (Hey J, is your mind on the turkey while writing this? He! He! I would too! ^..^)


My sister's delicious roasted turkey and my youngest sis's pumpkin rice. They are delicious.


My youngest sis's roasted lamb. Yummy!


My sis's sister-in-law's fresh salad with sour cream and chives. Refreshing and delicious!


Baked potatoes with cheese and bacon! Yummy!


Mince Pies, from my eldest sis, the filling is full of flavour from the brandy and rum. Really good!


Fruits with Chocolate Fondue. Needless to say, this is a hit with everyone! Absolutely addictive!


The birthday girl, my cute little niece, Ashleigh, with her mommy. My sis baked a really delicious cheese butter cake for her little princess who requested for a "clown" cake. 


Her cake is really cute and beautifully done! Great job, sis!

Due to the excitement, (there are about 30 of us!) and hungry kids, the adults too, I have forgotten to snap some photos of the Chili and Nachos (made by me) and the Spaghetti with Mince Meat Tomato Sauce (made by my nephew, which is really delicious, the kids had seconds!). I have forgotten the Gingerbread Man (cookies) and his family too! We really had fun and already planning for our New Year's get together pot-luck dinner!!

  5. What a beautiful (and delicious!!!) Christmas you and your family had! That pumpkin rice is AMAZING looking! YUM!

    And thank you for the knowledge on belly shape for the gender....we don't know what the gender of the baby is - LOVE surprises! I sometimes feel like my belly is "oval" = a boy as you say and then at other times/angles it looks more "round" = a girl. We shall see soon enough!!!

    Happy New Year!

  10. Joy, I agree with Miz Helen! Looks like a most wonderful Christmas. Today I picked up my prize from the post office, what a beautiful book! I will share this on my blog in the coming week. I have been busy with work and Christmas here and have not as yet shown the prize I shall award. I really need to get busy! Thank you so much, a lovely book and engraved note.
