One thing we all enjoy in our house over Christmas is all the Christmas goodies, well what can we say Christmas treats are just the best ever!
Christmas is a day that the diet goes out the window, we have a day off and enjoy ourselves without checking and weighing everything before we eat it. We love to sit and watch Christmas movies in our pjs with lots of sweets crisps and chocolates….well it is Christmas after all. We all take turns to pick a movie, this mainly happens the day after Boxing Day when the excitement of it all has just got too much and we want time to chill-out and have a day off from it all whilst looking back and chatting about our Christmas gifts.
One treat the boys do like is their Cadbury’s treats, they enjoy all of them, the biscuits, advent calendars, chocolate Santa and most of all the selection boxes. All of these get enjoyed over the festive period.
Myself and Ian like to sit back and over indulge ourselves on the Lindt selection. We think the Lindt reindeer’s are so cute and we could happily sit and eat a whole box of truffles easily.
Last year I found myself making eggnog which not only I enjoyed but other family members did too so this is something I will be making again this year. I started to make this after hearing it mentioned quite a lot in the Christmas movies I had watched last year, I thought to myself I have never tried eggnog and wanted to try it so I made some homemade eggnog and really enjoyed it!
We also enjoyed making chocolate truffles – these make fab homemade gifts, perfect for the neighbours, colleagues, teachers and friends.
Of course Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a Christmas cake would it. Do you make your own Christmas cakes? We do. We start making our Christmas cake about August time. Here is our cake from last year.
As you can see we have a very sweet tooth in our house over the festive period and I’m sure our house isn’t the only house to over indulge……Are we?
We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a very happy new year!
May all your dreams come true in 2016.
