On Christmas Day we all got up early (kind of) and we launched into a breakfast brunch affair. Hailee and I made the pancakes, and every one else had a specific job. That way things were a lot easier to manage.
I'm thinking she likes pancakes..... usually eats like a trooper when we have them. Next time I'll give her a crack at the eggs.... so to speak.
Chris was in charge of the scrambled eggs, and we had sausage links, bacon, and toast in addition to the pancakes.
Peg has a really nice pancake form in the shape of a teddy bear. Hailee likes them, so I make sure to use it whenever I can.
Everyone got a few gifts and we had a good time trying to figure out Hailee's method of gift distribution.
These two seemed to be buds.
Yes, I actually got a gift or two. Too much reference to me in this post? Tough, it's my blog, I'll post what I want.
And Peggy got some new monkey face slippers. Eat your heart out, Liz.
Seems to me that when I was young, these items were referred to as 'breaking dishes'. At least that's what my sisters called them.
My stocking was in the shape of a moose head, and Hailee looked excited to deliver it.
Bryn must have behaved herself this year, as Santa brought her a stocking, too.
Hailee had to dig deep to get all the goodies out of this generously sized sock.
Balloons and hair. Always a good combo with kids around.
We all had a great time, and we remembered to get a few group photos. Since the celebrations have ended, Peg and I have just settled in and enjoyed our time off work. The weather has been a little milder, with a couple inches of snow today. It's going to be colder again, hope the wood pile holds out.....
