There were grocery trips and last minute shopping in my week, but I think I got there. Now just time to enjoy it all. And cook, always cooking. This year we kept the menus very simple, with meatballs and homemade marinara for Christmas Eve. Then turkey with all of the traditional fixings a la my Mom so everyone can get their fix. Oh, and these waffles for Christmas morning that are heaven and something we have had every year for as long as I can remember (and these).
Another tradition we adopted a few years ago was making a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas Eve. I got the idea from this post (I miss that series!) and it helps the kids grasp the idea of Christmas a bit more before the madness of presents.
Do you have any favorite traditions? I would love to hear them.
For now I am signing off. Possibly until the New Year. Nice to take a break and I will be over on Instagram, so you can follow me there.
Can I just say that every day when I login to this little space and see that people are still visiting after all these years, it still gives me all the feels. I have so much gratitude to my readers and I am planning on growing this little blog even more in 2018.
Until then, Thank You and Happy New Year.
