Christmas 2010

Our postcard Christmas Eve:  fire in the fireplace, family together,

snow falling outside.

Christmas morning before:

 and during:

The boys got BB-guns.  Craig went to great lengths to make sure they didn't shoot their eye out.

Christmas breakfast was Overnight Caramel French Toast, freshly squeezed oj, and bacon.

I made out pretty well in the gift department; I got the stand mixer that was on my list. 

A fun time was had by all!

You have all week to link anything Christmas-related to my linky party.  Thanks to everyone who has already joined; I promise I will make it around to your posts, it's just taking forever on this antique computer!

How cool that they got bb guns, and how funny that my first frame of reference before reading the next part was to think of "A Christmas Story." ;) Yay for your new stand mixer!! Isn't it exciting when you receive something that was on your list? :)

Your Christmas breakfast looks so very good. It's probably not a good thing that I'm reading your post while I'm starving!

Congrats on your new stand mixer. I'll bet that you mix up bunches of great treats for your family using this.

Sounds like y'all had a great Christmas. That french toast looks delicious! I'm totally jealous of the snow!!! We got a couple of flurries and thats it!

I'm cracking up about the comment about the boys not shooting their eyes out. I hear bb gun and my mind goes directly to A Christmas Story. So funny!

Enjoy your new stand mixer!

Looks like fun. Love the picture of the Monopy game in action. Very cute.

Happy New Year!
