Our 2017 Christmas Celebration

Hello everyone, how is your Christmas celebration so far? I'm sure you enjoy your Christmas celebration as much as I enjoy mine.

We are in the process of moving from California to Washington, and as for now, we're living in between two states, my husband and I every other month we have a trip to California to finalize the rest of the moving process. My kids on the other hand already settle down and started their school, seems like they love it here in Washington, they made friends and have a huge backyard to play with, and the crispy clean air is so much better here in Washington where the temperature is so friendly in comparison to scorching hot California.

This Christmas we decided to celebrate in Washington state with friend and family, it was one of the best choices we made, we had a wonderful white Christmas. It's our first white Christmas and is so much different than when we in California, we had to drive an hour away just so we can play in the snow, here in Washington, the snow only one step away from the door.

And here a peek at our Christmas celebration.

Our table centerpieces.

These are pictures of delicious Pineapple tart and Speculaas Cookie.

Pineapple tart and Speculaas cookie is our Christmas tradition that we inherited from our Netherlands ancestor.

When I was growing up, my mom always baked this cookie in every Christmas time, It's a tradition in our family, I diligently attend to carry out this tradition with my family as well. So, every Christmas we will serve this delicious cookie to our guest.

Usually, we ate this cookie with hot cocoa or with a coffee drink.

Lipstick on me: SmashBox Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Red Legendary / on Shannon: Liquid Lipstick in Vamp from Anastasia of Beverly Hills

What we wear: On my boy T-shirt from Target Department store / on me: Red velvet dress from Macy's / On my girl: Dress from H&M / on my Hubby: Ralph Lauren Sweater from Nordstrom.

It was White Christmas in Seattle.

It was double celebration, Christmas eve and my niece Birthday Party. And this is our dessert table decor.

After the party end, everyone went to sleep, my daughter and I stay up late and enjoy a hot coco before we sleep.

Merry Christmas Everyone from our home to yours!
