We each contributed some of our favorite family dishes then gathered in the early afternoon to feast, drink and be merry. Being nearly five months pregnant of course meant I couldn't partake in the drinking, but the eating? Oh yes. Plenty of that. And all of it guilt free.
Dinner was followed by some football, of course, and then we went home for back-to-back Skype sessions with our families back in the U.S. It is always sad to be so far away from our relatives during the holidays, but we also enjoy creating new family traditions and celebrating with new friends. And this is only the beginning.
