To say that I am enjoying my Christmas break would be an understatement. I am pleading the days to go by slowly so I can soak up every bit of vacation and family I can. Ben and I packed up the Christmas presents early on Christmas Eve and beat the Atlanta traffic on the way to my Mom and Dad's house. We had a wonderful weekend and I am still celebrating! Ben headed back to Alabama yesterday and I am camping out at Mom and Dad's until New Year's Eve.
Christmas is always special and we spend the entire day with family. Christmas breakfast has been a tradition as long as I can remember and it is always delicious. We were so fortunate to have a wonderful Christmas morning in Georgia surrounded by family. Unfortunately we missed the white Christmas in Alabama, but I was ok with that. I got to eat breakfast casserole! Besides spending much needed time with my family, I do believe that it is one of the best things about being at home for Christmas.
Mom's delicious breakfast casserole
Ambrosia is on the menu every year and yours truly is in charge of cutting all those oranges! (I did give up a little over half way through this year and called in the reinforcement. Thanks, Mom!)
We usually have some sort of muffin because we usually have one or two who don't eat breakfast casserole. This year we had lemon poppyseed.
Mom's glorious homemade biscuits. She taught me how to make them and I credit them with winning over my husband's love and affection :)
The most delicious grits that will ever enter your mouth.
Mom always has the dining room looking so special for us on Christmas morning.
Ben piling it on!
I piled it on too!!
I do have an excuse as I am currently eating for TWO!
Bring on the elastic waistbands!
