A few things, Christmas was wonderful. It was so much nicer than I imagined it would be. No, my house wasn't decorated like I wanted it to be and no, I didn't cook the massive big feast I wanted to, but you know, it was still perfect.

Steve's low salicylate, anime and glutomate diet has been going well. Except for the Christmas Day incident where the lure of BBQ sauce was just too great, apparently. But now we have the RPA Elimination Diet Handbook, it has made everything so much clearer to us and it has been great. Steve has even lost over 3 kilos.

I am just going to list 2 links to recipes here so I can refer back to them and also if anyone else needs them.

Ok, so I didn't complete my 25 Days of Christmas. It's all good. I only have 2 days left, and well, why not upload them today?

Day 24

Something special you can do with the kids. Lisa from The Red Thread has created these beautiful baubles.

Day 25

Well, I found the most cutest Elves. Just follow this link for the tutorial. This tutorial comes to us by way of the Make Baby Stuff . com site.


  1. I have really enjoyed your xmas countdown and hope you will do it again next year ;)
    All the best to you and your family for 2010!!!

  2. Hi Beth, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours.
    Sorry to hear Steve's food allergies are playing up again, elimination diets are very hard. We are doing this with Lillee and her skin problems.

    Hope 2010 is a wonderful year for you and your family.

  3. Happy New year to you and yours. I hope that the temptation with the BBQ sauce didn't cause any problems. I hope that the next 12 months are totally uneventful, heathwise, for you all, especially hubby.

  4. Glad to hear that your Christmas was perfect. I hope that the year ahead is 'perfect' too. :)
