Christmas scenes from the weekend!

by Elizabeth on December 22, 2013

Well today definitely doesn’t feel like Monday! Joe is off so we are doing the last of our wrapping and heading to my sister’s house for a baking day! I attempted to make toffee on Friday but it was a COMPLETE fail so I’m going to try again today.
Friday night we were both feeling a little under the weather so we chose to order pizza and rent a red box.

Saturday I had a longer run planned, and when I got out there I felt amazing (and had Joe home to take care of Noah) so took advantage of it!

Saturday evening we went to some of our friends house for a Christmas party… It looked like it was straight off of Pinterest. I spent most of my time at the hot chocolate bar. Steaming cocoa with your choice of several flavors of chocolate chips, caramels, peppermint, heath, and whip cream for toppings:

Dessert table! Luckily someone there had made incredible toffee so I still got to stuff my face indulge a bit.

Loved her tree too!

After the party we went to my parents house since we were going to a family Christmas party Sunday afternoon with them.

Oh my goodness -that hot chocolate bar is such a cute idea!! Also, that pizza looks ah-mazing right now. . . I might have to do that for dinner tonight. :)

Hey Elizabeth –

probably should have warned you that the toffee recipe isn’t exactly ‘fool proof’. We’ve failed numerous times before, and it either is a complete flop or incredibly amazing. Maybe try only taking it up to 310 the next time you try — so sorry it didn’t work out!!

Hot chocolate bar is so cute! Low key nights with pizza and a movie are my favorite?and have become more frequent since I started dating someone. Seems he is taming my wild ways! ;)

Basically after looking at that pizza box I am now experiencing a craving for pepperoni… why is pizza SO good?

That hot coco bar is a genius idea. I have to say my favorite candy is toffee, the best stuff ever! Noah is looking so cute on Santa’s lap!! :)

What a cute party! Glad Noah liked Santa. My little one was not feeling Santa this year… maybe there’s hope for us next year!
Merry Christmas!
