A Pink Dinner

A few weeks ago when we were staying with my parents we had a pink dinner! The food was inspired by a recipe in Jamie Oliver’s Dinners cook book – Chicken Maryland. It was a great meal…..I hope you are recovering well from Christmas festivities.


Merry Christmas to you!


It is Christmas day once more. I love Christmas!! I really love Christmas. I love the decorating, the food, spending time with my family, I love the hot weather, I love the carols (I have been playing our Christmas records non-stop all December!), but what I really love is how Christmas is all about Emmanuel – God is with us. All the beauty and wonder and joy stems back to this wondrous event where Christ – God with us, came as a baby to live in the world He created….to truly reconcile us to God.

Joy to the world! The Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing, and Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and Heaven and nature Sing!

Merry Christmas to you.


Our Christmas Trees

This isn’t the best photo, but here is one of our Christmas tree. I love the happy sparrow sitting atop the tree!

Our Christmas branch tree!

Our little fir tree.

One of my favorites is this little wooden tree!

I hope at this festive time you are able to have a sit and ponder about the wonder of Jesus – God coming to dwell among us – the Saviour of the world.
