Day Two – Family from Scotland

It’s been a good day ๐Ÿ™‚

The ‘Advent Calendar of Beers’ (24 specially selected Danish beers, wrapped in cellophane and presented in a beer bucket) that we bought for my Dad and my brother (one bucket each) are now opened.

The Christmas Cake has been cut, digested, discussed and got (at least) two thumbs up (even by those who don’t like Christmas cake – me included).

This afternoon we (DD7, DS9 and my niece) baked and made: savoury cheese crisps, dates stuffed with marcipan and dipped in chocolate, chocolate thumbprint cookies, candy canes dipped in choc and sprinkled with smashed candy cane, kransekage (small marcipan cakes) and served them for the guests (extended family) who came for dinner tonight.

Our guests have just left, I’ve been out to shovel more snow from the pavement and have just done my BBR (before bed routine). So it’s time to enjoy a last glass of wine with the family and then lights out. Nite! ๐Ÿ™‚
