We did some grocery shopping yesterday and are finishing it up today.

Below is what is on our menu to make. Make sure to keep up with us on IG stories (purelytwins) and snapchat (loriandmichelle) to see us in the kitchen and more.

Besides being in the kitchen (something we love to do) we cannot wait to continue on with family traditions.  Do you have any family traditions you do every holiday?

  2. Looks delicious! We are doing roasted chicken and steak for Christmas Day. Not our traditional meal but traveling and don’t want large amount of leftovers. I made a grain free pumpkin pie and cut out cookies today with my kids.
    Have a Merry christmas! Happy first Christmas to Lyla!
