Vienna Family Christmas Dinner!
Last Tuesday we had a little christmas dinner party with our most favourite friends in Vienna. It was so wonderful!! We did one last year and it was so great and the food was delicious and we had so much fun and we decided to do it every year. Ohh but we almost forgot about it. No one started planing the party and we all kind of kept waiting for someone to say something. Weird! It's like with New Years this year. Are you in Vienna? I will be if you are! So maybe we'll all be here but also maybe not! someone has to say something or we're all doomed!! Well mostly me..since I'm from Moosburg!
Anyway we started planing on Saturday and wanted to do it on Sunday but it was all happening to fast so we moved it to Tuesday which was perfect!Hansi was in charge of the bird and I made the side dishes with help from Matthias! Everyone brought sweets and Glüh Wein!! Ohhh and Vanessa made the most delicious Chocolate coconut cake!!
Also everyone had to bring a little present to put under our christmas tree and than everyone got to pull a number out of a hat and got a present. Just like the real thing!!
Baby girl Janni started off the night by reading a christmas story it was such a great idea! The first story he read was a bit sad with a little girl dying or something but it was still really great!!
This is Oscar!!
Look how we're all concentrating on the christmas story!!
Don't you just love this Christmas tree head piece?? I DO!! I'm so in love with it!!
This was the delicious turkey, Hansi made!! The stuffing had marzipan, apples and nuts in it..I was soo soo great!
( Matthias left it in the oven and Janni wanted to eat it yesterday and it was mouldy..hihi..and he did eat a piece before he noticed it..it was great to watch! )
As side dishes we had spanish green beans, duchess potatoes, whiskey-glazed carrots, Blaukraut and dumplings (Kartoffelknödel). The latter two were store bought!
Here you can see the spanish green beans. Really easy to make and pretty damn delicious!

After the delicious dinner the group split up. Part of them sat in the kitchen (Annick & Lena) and talked about exams!! (bad girls!!) and the rest of us sat in the living room and stared at the cutest little oscar wearing a hoodie!! What can I say..WE ARE PARTY PEOPLE!! wooohoo!!
But seriously look at him!! So adorable!!
Ohh and this is what the party turned into later on!! Wii and Gameboy DS!!
But they seem happy! That's all that matters, right?
