Our Christmas....

We had a wonderful Christmas, despite our first without family. Woke up early 7am...enjoyed Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer....my favorite! The babies woke up full of joy, Sophie knew something was up and she was full of energy. Katelyn came down to see what Santa brought her, prepared with all her electronics in hand....computer for Christmas music, cell phone for any early morning texts and camera to catch all the shots!

We opened presents than enjoyed a breakfast casserole and cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Stayed in our Pj's all day...made cookies, watched movies, relaxed. Prepared a turkey dinner, our first solo and learned a lot....like start the turkey earlier if you want to eat before 8 pm!

It was wonderful !

Your Christmas morning sounded delightful. That Peppermint Mocha creamer sounds DEEE--LISH! I have a no fail recipe for making a turkey (from 10 lbs-24 lbs) in 2 hours and under I have been making my turkeys this way for the past 5 years (which is when I found the recipe) and it is seriously no fail. The turkey comes out moist and delicious inside and crispy on the outside. I will mail it to you snail mail. Hope you are all staying home today!! xoxo

PS My mom was transported home from the rehab facility on Sunday morning. She got home before the blizzard, thank goodness. She is doing much better with this knee replacemnt than the last one
