Christmas Morning 2008

We woke up early so Hubby could pick up my mom at her hotel before Fritter got up. We sat by the lighted Christmas tree and drank coffee and had Christmas cookies for breakfast. When Fritter woke, he had a yucky cold. My poor son seems to get sick on holidays. :-( He came out and was presented with a new tricycle from Santa.

After gift opening, my dear husband made us all breakfast. He is the breakfast cook in the family, and has scrambled eggs down to a science. Unlike me who can just as well ruin an egg.

We had planned on going to Midnight Mass, but decided that a sick toddler, a newborn, and a mommy that doesn't do so good on only a few hours sleep did not mix well with a late night Mass. So we went to Mass that morning. Here are some pics of the kiddos all dressed up.

Fritter was not happy, but he sure looked cute.
I realize now that no matter how cute the dress, it's so much easier holding on to a newborn in a sleeper.
After Mass, we came home and watched Christmas movies and enjoyed all the cookies I've been forbidding my family to eat until then. We had our feast on Christmas Eve, so we relaxed and ate the wonderful leftovers that sirloin tip roast will make.
BTW, the cutest Christmas cookies are pfeffernuesse. I found the recipe in a cook book, and decided to try them, even though the recipe looked fairly involved. It was, but the cookies are so cute and have a really mild taste and a great aftertaste. I highly recommend adding these to your cookie list for next year! Because I can't find a link to the recipe, and it isn't mine, if you email me, I will gladly share it with you. Just click the link on my sidebar to email me.
