I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! We kept it real with the following traditions.
We wore festive outfits and drank mimosas.
We had a big tasty breakfast. This year we had chocolate chip pancakes topped with fresh whipped cream. (That’s my new big whisk down there!)
I took a picture of Elliot through my chocolate-covered gingerbread men spatula. He thought that was pretty fun.
We sipped mimosas all day while sitting on the couch, listening to Elvis Christmas songs and watching A Christmas Story and Home Alone 2.
This year we got a real tree! I thought it was a Douglas Fur, but Jake says it’s an Albus Fur, which I don’t mind. It reminds me of Dumbledore. We just decorated the tree with lights and this owl ornament.
Cheese and cracker snacking takes us through lunch since Jake make’s a big dinner every year. This year we got fancy goat cheese, an applewood smoked cheddar and an English cheese with a long name.
Jake made us a roasted pork shoulder with fancy holiday spices. And that’s our super pretty new roasting pan. It was a Christmas miracle! We also had roasted potatoes, but we gobbled them up.
It was a good Christmas filled with tasty food, bubbly drinks, my tall drink of water of a boyfriend and my cute little pup.
P. S. These are the Christmas cookie boxes I gave out, this year.
