Merry and Bright

Saturday night we had the first annual Davis Christmas Party at Hillside.

This year we did an ugly Christmas sweater and costume theme.

 Witt designed his own, complete with jingle bells.

We snacked on meatballs with sauce, lil' smokies, Christmas cookies, brownies, brie with apricot jam, pesto dip, Christmas funfetti cupcakes and lots more.

Also apple cider and Christmas punch.

We also played build a snowman, with toilet paper and it was hilarious.

Our first Christmas at Hillside has been really wonderful. It's amazing to be able to have lots of people in our home, celebrating the season and this life we are lucky to be living.

I've felt like toasting a lot this season, toasting our new home, family, and love.

So I'll leave you with a Champagne Christmas punch that we served, perfectly festive.

Cheers.


Cranberry Champagne Punch

1 bottle of extra dry sparkling wine or champagne
1 cup vodka
1/2 cup white rum
4 cups 100 % cranberry juice plus 1 cup
1 cups sparkling strawberry juice (I like ICE brand) plus 1/2 cup
Lime slices

Pour 1 cup cranberry and 1/2 cup strawberry along with a few lime slices into an ice mold and freeze. Once frozen, un-mold into a punch bowl and pour the rest of the ingredients over it.

Enjoy.
