Christmas Celebrations

 Must begin post with a cute puppy photo.
 Christmas on the Gold Coast was as usual, hot and humid, yet we still like to decorate the house with wintery , frosty decorations and motifs.

 Maya received a squeaky gingerbread man toy. The sound drives us bonkers.
My daughter made these for the children guests. There are chocolates hidden inside.

Managed to create a low carb(ish) Christmas feast. But, I did cook roast potatoes - don't judge me - I have to eat potatoes at Christmas. Above- low carb pikelets with turkey, brie cheese and cranberry sauce.
 Forgot to take photos of the mains, but here are all the desserts. Low carb chocolate mousse.
 Sugar free jelly layers.
Low carb fruit mince pies.
Low carb white Christmas, rum and raisin puddings and chocolate truffles

 Low carb black forest trifle.
 Low carb tropical trifle
Low carb strawberry cheesecake tarts.
 My daughter made this for me as a joke. It's Miley Cyrus on a bauble wrecking ball!! Where does she get all these crazy ideas from. Must be hereditary.
 We couldn't put our tree up this year, due to a small puppy in the house, so I grabbed some branches from the bush and ended up with my take on a Scandi Christmas tree.
 I made this Swedish horse decoration.
 And crocheted some snowflakes.

 Creative gift wrap.

Snow globe.
I hope all my readers had a wonderful Christmas. xo


  1. I've been following your blog for almost a year. You're SO creative! I'm a mom of four kids and two have Type 1. :( First son DX'd Sept '10 and second son DX'd Aug '13. I love your recipe ideas & your new dog is so cute.

    1. Thank you for following my blog! My next post will be about my son's 1 year blood test results, and how a low carb diet has resulted in a better than perfect profile..

  2. As far as I'm concerned, forget about the main dishes and just have desserts. Oh, and may I please have that little horse you made? ^^
