Our Christmas

26 December 2010

Christmas was fun yesterday. I spent it with my wonderful husband and family. As I've said before, I didn't have much time this year to make any gifts, so my gifts were very simple this year. But then, my parents are truly difficult to get presents for!

I finished icing the Christmas cake early in the morning - I was very proud, and I really had fun doing it. The first layer of royal icing was too watery, and the second layer was the result of some further research to find out that I had to beat the icing until it formed peaks. Who knew! :)

Meep also got in on the Christmas action - she was sucking up so much yesterday - must have been grateful for the excessive amount of fish we gave them in the morning - and was generally making everyone sigh about how cute and sweet she is. Which she is, of course!

Hope everyone has a great Boxing Day!
