Well, I have failed so far in taking any pictures but Lauren took some so I’ll get her to forward some to me so I can add them to this post later.
The donuts were a hit for our Christmas Eve breakfast, as was the breakfast burrito bake. We changed things up, just a bit this year and opened stockings and then ate breakfast and then went back and opened gifts. (Sorry about all those “and”s.)
It was fun seeing the gifts my sister’s family received. We exchanged ornaments and this year Tiffany painted the ones we gave. I’ll share a picture later. I was going to buy it but the reviews said that they were on lightweight wood and not very brightly painted. So, odds are that we would have had to repaint them anyway. So Tiffany just offered to paint them to begin with. So I bought the ornament wood blanks and gave them a nice white base coat. Then she whipped them out like it was nothing.
I got an old game out to play with Liam yesterday. It is called Pizza Party. It is really a lot of fun for children. I remember playing it with my nieces and they never wanted to stop playing.
This was the first time he’s played it and we had a ball with it. I had forgotten that pizza is his favorite food. So you can imagine, he loved it.
It was a fun Christmas Eve and I’m sure today will be both emotional and fun. Emotional because my dad is in heaven but fun, because we will be intentional and make it fun.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and enjoyable weekend.
Until next time, God bless,
