We've been having heaps of fun decorating the house and doing Christmas crafts. It's nice this year with the kids being just a little bit older, they understand more what's going on and are more able to join in on the crafting!
Check out my huge christmas cake in the last photo. It's the first time I have made one, I've meant to every year and never quite got around to it. I didn't really have a tin big enough so I made my paper lining come up past the sides to give it some more height - fortunately I did as it rose quite a lot! I'm looking forward to seeing what it tastes like.
