Vlogmas 2018: Day 25

It's Christmas Day!

I do some final food prep, and then the guests arrive. We've got lots of footage of YarnderMum being her very cute self, as well as Smudge the YarnderDog and the rest of the Yarnder family.

In the evening we visit the Yarnders-in-law, where Smudge meets a new doggie friend and we end the evening with a game of Star Wars Trivial Pursuit.

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 24

It's Christmas Eve! I'm doing lots of cooking today, as well as looking at Christmas lights, and watching our traditional Xmas Eve shows (including the Justice League cartoon).

The Recipes mentioned are as follows:

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 23

It's Christmas Eve Eve! Lots happening today, involving copious amounts of (re-used) wrapping paper, for gifts and making bon-bons for the table. I also finish-up the two knitted gifts I needed to finalise, and I can now rest a little, knowing that there is just the food prep to do.

Vlogmas 2018 - Days 21 & 22

Spoiler alert - we get a big Christmas tree! I also visit YarnderMum and she tells us all about that favourite toy pig of hers.
