1st December

The 1st of December marks the beginning of the festive season. I love this time of year. I love thinking about what to make or buy for people and trying to find something that I think they will love. I love getting creative and making lots of goodies. I love the celebrations and the presents and I love that I can openly talk more freely about Jesus and His birth without people feeling like I’m being a pushy Christian lol.

Last night marked the beginning of our Christmas traditions. We joined the Bests for a Christmas dinner- a yummy roast with trifle for dessert! This year Megan, Andrew and Joel Spinks joined us as well this year. I was allocated dessert to make this year. Here is the yummy trifle i made. I was quite proud of myself as I made it all from scratch. Homemade cake, jelly, custard everything. It was delicious!
