Christmas Eve goodness

Last night the temperature dropped.

We all baked Christmas cookies.

Even Steve.

This morning I found two black prince cicadas 

on the front fence.

After dropping Emily at work,

I baked potatoes for our big Christmas dinner

at my parents' tomorrow.

which smells amazing;

custard and a capoko cake

(carrot, pear & choko);

and was thankful for the cool weather

as I was busy in the warm kitchen.

Santa has just driven by,

... so now it really feels like Christmas Eve!

The turkey is in the oven for our own 

(not so) little Christmas Eve Dinner tonight.

Time to set the table, 

bake some veges,

light the candles,

sing carols,

and enjoy being together,

all the year's work done.
