We are starting to get ready for Christmas and we are putting our tree up tonight with E.
He is so excited as this is the first year that we will be home for Christmas and he can not believe that Santa is actually going to come to our house .... "how will he find us Mummy? He normally goes to Bupcha's house?" (Bupcha is Polish for Grandmother).
So today we are going to write a letter to Santa, just so he knows where to find us! I also asked E if he wanted to ask Santa for any present in particular, and he said "No, that's ok Mummy I don't really need anything at the moment, if he could just visit, that would be great" .... awww so sweet!
Normally, we go to Sydney for Christmas as that is where both our families live, however we really wanted E to spend a Christmas in his house, in his bed and sort of start our own little tradition at home. So we spoke to our families and decided that this year was a great time to have a Canberra Christmas - it will also be my first Christmas in Canberra.... it's only been 9 years!
We've planned our menu and decided to go with a seafood theme with a twist. I have loved scouring the cook books with E looking for different things that we can cook for our Christmas lunch : ) and we've already started to trial some of the dishes. Earlier this week we made a Mango Coleslaw salad... thanks to a recipe we found in the Real Living Magazine - it was a huge hit so it's been added to our list!
Next trial is a fish dish.... hoping to give that a go on the weekend, so I'll let you know how we go!
Ho Ho Ho enjoy your day xx
