The gkids are here and they will get up in the morning and will say: "Giggggg....I want the super, duper, extra special breakfast, pleaseeeee!!" Just what is a super, duper, extra special breakfast you ask...well...
Pancakes, Grits, Bacon or Sausage and Cheesy Scramble eggs...and the kitchen sink!! Mr. Big says they are spoiled, but he sure doesn't give his plate away.
Hopefully, they then will take their full tummies and go outside and play till they are almost frozen. Guess what time it will be then...time to EAT again!! Since I will be in the kitchen anyway, a few minutes to make a few sandwiches, what the hell...
I have a Cheesecake, Pumpkin pies, Pecan pie to bake. Plus all the fixings for tonight and Christmas Day, whew! Hopefully my Son-in-law will keep up the great job of washing dishes.
I do have all my shopping done, just got done last night, just in time to wrap and let the kiddies rip them open!!
The gkids are very excited, it will be very busy and noisy, but I wouldn't change this time with them. They all love to help in the kitchen and I love letting them help me. We are making memories...I want them to remember and embrace this tradition of spending time with family and friends.
The perfect way for me to begin Christmas Day is attending Midnight Mass...a time to reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas...celebrating the birth of Baby Jesus.
Christmas Day will be more of the same...food... presents...food...nap...snack...
A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
to all and to all
