|I am addicted to birds on my Christmas tree. I have no idea where this came from but I love it.|
I spent yesterday in cozy yoga pants and wrapped almost all of the gifts with only a few left to do. Deb mentioned watching a funny holiday movie to pep me up and Scrooged came to mind and what do you know? Netflix had it! So I spent lunch time laughing, wrapping and eating a grilled ham and cheese with Bill Murray.
|My sister, Lindsey, bought me this light up lantern for my birthday. They flicker like real flames.|
I made it a point to stay in all day. Read a little in bed. Watched Home Alone with the girls after dinner. Then took a peppermint bubble bath, drank Theraflu then passed out.
|My mom cross-stitched this Santa when I was probably 12 or so. This is one of the only crafty things I have that my mom made.|
I woke up still a little stuffy but my sore throat is gone. I may just yet dodge the doctor.
|A sweet little mushroom I picked out in Germany at EPCOT last year.|
I am amazed at how fast Christmas approaches. I will probably make some Christmas candy. Thinking pralines, some type of chocolate bark or mint candies. Christmas Eve for brunch we head to my Dad and stepmom's to eat and visit, then Christmas Eve dinner will be at my house with my mom and sisters. We plan on doing finger foods and games. Then Christmas morning we will be home all. Day. Long. Staying in pajamas and playing with the toys. Probably watching a little Christmas Story.
|One of my favorite ornaments. Downtown Disney (well, Disney Springs now) has a Christmas store and I picked this out there and they personalized it for me.|
I am stumped on what to cook for Christmas breakfast, since Savanna told me that the sausage, egg and cheese casserole I made every Christmas morning for the past 10 years is not her favorite. Sigh.
|I had fun with some glass enamel paint one year and did this lil snowman and cardinal.|
Do you have any suggestions for me?
|These are lovely ornaments from the Franklin Mint that my grandmother used to collect. I have about 8 that are all over the tree. They remind me of Nano every time I catch a glimpse of gold.|
I think the bulk of the stress has lifted off of me and I do feel more relaxed. There is a spark of excitement that was kindled while wrapping presents yesterday and imagining the girls opening them. I imagine this may be Savanna's last year of believing in Santa. Hopefully the magic will still remain though.
|My favorite crystal bell trio from when I was a wee babe.|
Last night the girls got to sleep by the Christmas tree and we kept it lit all night. They woke up and played with some Power Puff Girls in the blankets and pillows while I sat here, drank my coffee and typed up this post. A nice start to my morning. But now I must go and make them breakfast.
How are you feeling today? Do you have the holiday anticipation? Are you planning on cooking or baking? What do you eat for Christmas breakfast?
