Christmas Eve at Our House


Chelsy's and Hudson's appetizer pizza concoction was a wonderful blend of cheese, garlic, red onions, and cream cheese.
.....................


Carson made some incredibly yummy onion rings.

Does anyone notice a problem with this picture?:)

Mitchell made these lovely cups using broccoli, salami, pastry dough, homemade mayonnaise, and other yummy ingredients.
.......................


Denver had fun making breaded, grilled shrimp with a delicious sauce for dipping.
.....................


Other delectable appetizers were:
~Layered Nacho Dip with chips (made by Joshua)
~Stuffed Mushrooms (Mom and Liz)
~Sweet Pepper Dip (Taylor)
Of course, we had to serve some fresh veggies, too!  (Somehow, most of the recipes we made seemed to consist more of cream cheese, cheese, and other such yummies than veggies.)






This year we had pound cake, pretzels, and fruit dipped in chocolate fondue for dessert.

Christmas eve traditions:
- the day is spent (mostly) cooking
- each of the older children prepare (or help to prepare) an appetizer for the evening meal
- everyone wears formal clothes to dinner
- the table is set with linens and goblets
-dinner is eaten by candlelight

  3. What a lovely way to spend Christmas together as a family! The table is so beautiful. The men look so nice all dressed up, and all you ladies look absolutely beautiful in your finery! What a wonderful way to celebrate our dear Savior's birth, by making things look tidy, very nice, and lovely all for Him!

    God bless! Have a very blessed New Year! Rebecca K.

  4. Do the Sandersfeld family (that Chelsey did a photo shoot for) have a blog or website?
