Christmas Eve

by HEAB on December 26, 2012

Our first Christmas together as a family of seven! (Mom, Dad, three kids, and two dogs).

We spent a quiet Christmas Eve at home just being together.  The shopping was done (thank you Internet!), and all that was left to do was put on our Christmas PJ’s and have some fun in the kitchen.

We baked gluten free cookies for Santa…

Christmas M & M and Chocolate Peppermint.

After some trial and error, I can finally bake a pretty decent gluten free cookie.  For the recipe, please click here.

For Christmas Eve dinner, we made our own pizzas using Udi’s brand pizza crust.  (Our toddler can’t eat wheat, hence all the gluten free eating).  The pizzas turned out good, but I’d love to experiment with making my own crust soon.

Edited to Add: Several of you have asked about Summer’s Tower.  It’s a Little Partner’s Learning Tower, and we LOVE it!

Summer’s first pizza…

ONE sun dried tomato and a sprinkle of feta.

Then after the children were nestled all snug in their beds, CD and I settled down to watch It’s A Wonderful Life.  Oh…and we kind of got into those cookies.  Sorry Santa!  Thanks for still leaving us gifts. :)

Hope all of you enjoyed some sweet moments with your families this holiday season!
