December 24 – 30, 2015.

Here’s a photo summary of my family’s festivities, spanning from December 24 to December 30. I hope you enjoy the post, despite the fact I’ve only put it up now.

December 24

Look at that! My favourite breakfast of all.

Before breakfast, I put the presents under the tree. Normally I would’ve done it earlier but we’d only put the tree up the day before.

We bought some new ornaments this year and this is one of them. I love them so much!

My other favourite, for obvious reasons. I’ve got a pair of these in the Fortnum & Mason’s Christmas shop.

An oldie but a goodie.

We had the prettiest tree ever. As we do every year. 🙂

We experimented with the mistletoe a little bit and I love how it turned out!

Here’s the finished plum compote from the previous night.

I’d had a very specific idea about the table set up and it ended up being just what I’d imagined.

We also had a really charming bouquet — and it lasted us over 2 weeks! I was so impressed.

These are plums wrapped in bacon and some leafy greens.

My mum let me take a couple of photos of her.

Potato salad and fried carp. We only have it once a year so I always enjoy it a lot.

Our sweets are always spectacular.

I’m a big fan of sparklers. 😉

December 25

Even though it’s slightly different each year, our tree always has character and it always reminds me of all the Christmases past. We like to buy some new ornaments every year but there are some that we always have to put on the tree. I love when the old and the new meet and create something extraordinary.

Here’s another shot of the mistletoe arrangement. What do you think?

Books are the best presents. And I got loads!

Christmas day meal prep.

Eda was helping, as usual.

Brussel sprouts and apple & cranberry puree. That was my favourite thing about the whole lunch!

Looks delicious, doesn’t it?

December 26 – 30

Then, finally, more people arrived! My little sister came on the 26th and stayed for three days. Among other things, we went to the ice carnival together and we had a lot of fun! By the way, she got that reindeer jumper from us for Christmas and she didn’t take it off the whole time she was there. 😀

Then my sister’s boyfriend turned up on the 28th. And there were more presents!

When you accidentally get the same pyjamas like your sister, you’ve just got to take a picture together. It’s the law. 😛
