Christmas 2012

Back in the saddle after Monday’s hiatus. It’s been a long week –  overly tired (baby Zoe is teething so no sleep for me), busy traveling (quick family-of-four trip to Florida), and gift wrapping (lots of presents), therefore had no time to write. I hope everyone had a super duper Christmas (and Hannukah earlier in the month!) We had a great night with my in-laws and family. Here are some highlights of Christmas Day Night with the Natoris!

As always, a very chic and beautifully set dining table.


Romantic centerpiece of candles and orchids.


Pre-dinner caviar ans smoked salmon. HEAVEN.


I licked the bowl afterwards to make sure that not one single egg went to waste. Not joking.

buffet dinner

Buffet dinner. This was just half of the dinner. Everything was beautifully prepared, and delicious.

Isn’t it amazing how time flies? I can’t believe that a year has passed since our last Christmas celebration! Now, we need to clean up the Christmas decorations, pack for a week long ski trip to Oregon, and plan for the upcoming New Year! Happy end of the month and year! Hope everyone had a joyous and peaceful holiday!

P.S. Here are some pictures from our quick weekend trip to Florida! Next stop, OREGON!
