Christmas Day 2014

How is Christmas over, already?  I’m going to blink, and it will be Christmas 2015!  We had a very merry day, with the exception of missing Grandma who got the flu and had to stay in bed most of the day.  (Poor Grandma!)

First thing in the morning, the stockings were sorted.  The kids were so thrilled with their Santa gifts, we could have stopped right there!  They wasted no time playing with their new gifts while waiting for Papa to come home to enjoy breakfast with us…

This year I did 1/3 of our breakfast casserole in bacon instead of sausage so the kids would actually enjoy it.  And, they did!
