Happy Christmas to those of you stopping by today!
I think this was perhaps the latest Christmas morning we’ve ever had. We had a lovely brunch at 11AM and then opened presents afterwards and are just now finishing up! When we were younger we were never allowed to start opening presents at 5AM like some families do – we always had to wait until my parents got up around 7 or 8. Today mom and dad were up before we all were!
I woke up around 8:30 and ended up taking a shower before coming down and having some coffee while we prepared brunch. I was surprised I was able to make it to 11 without anything formal to eat. I did nibble from the fruit salad and sipped my cup of coffee, so that helped
Lillian says a Christmas hello!
Too many cooks in the pot!
Brunch was delightful –
Mom’s cinnamon coffee cake
Matt A’s cheesy scrambled eggs
Great Harvest buttered toast
Smoothie Girl Deb’s Pecan butter with peach preserves
I had some tea with brunch so as not to overload with caffeine
I had some of everything (‘cept snausage cause I don’t really care for meats at breakfast)
It was all so delicious!
Plus some OJ my mom put at each place
Then it was gift time
Kanz’s were wrapped in bears!!
And he got a new OUTFIT for our bears!
Santa my have a partnership with Delta because I got BISCOFF for Christmas!!
I got some wonderful gifts – a Yogitoes towel, the Wicked CD, a Davidson running hat and cooking measurements kitchen towels
A book I’ve been wanting to read
And this awesome/hilarious running top from Matt‘s dad and Cheryl that has half gloves, a hood…
And a PONYTAIL HOLE!!
The bear theme continued with some bear PJs and this awesome sleep mask!!
We got my dad those gloves with the fingers missing so he can read and walk with his magazines in cold weather!
It’s pouring rain here and we’re all cozy inside. I might lead the group in a space-heater hot yoga class from YogaDownload and there will be lots of reading and relaxing until Christmas dinner tonight.
Hope you guys are surrounded by those you love
