Merry Christmas to all of you!
How will you be celebrating?
We’ll be going to Christmas Eve service at church. Afterward, we’ll have a Mexican type dinner at home. This meal has been a tradition since the kids were very little. We’ll let the kids open a present, play a game together and then get ready for bed.
Jim and I always wrap the doorway to the living room after the kids are in bed so the next morning they bust through the paper to get into the Christmas tree and presents. This is fun for them, but serves two practical purposes. It buys us some time to get a cup of coffee (I think we’ll have to fix one for our oldest daughter this year too). And it lets me line all the kids up for a picture before the unwrapping starts.
Breakfast is simple – an egg and sausage casserole, Pillsbury Grands cinnamon rolls (the kids won’t let me change this and it’s easy, which is a bonus) and Frozen Fruit Cups.
I’m trying a new Rachel Ray recipe for our dinner. It’s just a nice sandwich and salad. I like to keep it simple and easy so I can play with the kids and lay around in my pj’s. We’ll celebrate with extended family over the weekend.
What about you? What are your traditions? What are you cooking for the holiday?
I pray you all have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.
