A bite-sized Christmas, 2012*

Christmas Eve

Christmas chocolates made with my sister

Some of Mr Bite's advent calendar finds

Family presents ready to go

Roast vegetables for a roast vegetable strudel

Christmas Day

A whole heap of presents (framed pictures included)

with spiced walnuts, and the assembled (slightly crumbly) roast vegetable strudel

Neighbourhood lights

We were dreaming of a white Christmas but...

I hope your 25th December was merry and your neighbourhood was bright!

* In truth, it was more gulp-sized.


  1. Your Christmas looks like it was beautiful. Such bad weather in Sydney. It rained, was cold and really dark! My Mum made me beautiful veggie food. I am still full!

  2. I saw 40 forecasted for Perth tomorrow and thought of you! Eat lots of ice cream and frozen smoothies and do some swimming or hang out in air conditioned places! Happy christmas to you and Mr Bite and the rest of your Bite-Sized Family :) Your neighbours' lights are super impressive, in a Griswold's kind of way.

  3. That roast vegetable strudel looks fabulous! Definitely keeping it in mind for next year's festivities! Looks like you had a delicious holiday!

  4. You had a heatwave? We had a very cold day where it didn't stop raining and we cowered inside from not only the rain but the constant thunder. Your vegetable strudel looks very delicious and I love the shots of the Christmas lights xx

  5. I am so glad you had such a wonderful Christmas!! :)
    I am so sorry you guys aren't having the best weather. Hopefully New Years does in fact bring some relief.

  6. Merry Christmas, again, my dear!

  7. sounds too hot for christmas day but looks delicious and lovely - your salads look lovely (glad you enjoyed the spiced walnut one) and the neighbour's lights look amazing

  8. It looks like you had a fabulous Christmas!!! Your weather was the exact opposite of ours! We had a white Christmas and it was COLD!

  9. Looks like you had a fun Christmas - thanks for sharing with us.

  10. Gulped sized...ha!!!!
    Looks like a wonderful holiday for you. I hope you ring in the new year just as beautifully!

  11. What a fun Christmas! :) Great pictures!

  12. It's always nifty coming across Christmas posts and pictures from far away (I'm over in Saskatchewan, Canada) - for one, those neighborhood lights are ridiculously awesome. And I'd totally trade you holiday weather, it was around -30C on Christmas here, ha ha. :)
