Christmas Eve

Today was filled with lots of yummy food and family.

We started with a brunch at our house with the Standiford family.  Kade was a big helper in the kitchen.  ("Mom, you can take a picture of me and it can be picture of the day.")

He's working on the sausage part of the gravy.  As you can see the biscuits are already done.  Christmas is the only time we have this yummy, fatty dish.  We also had scrambled eggs, coffee cake, snickers salad, and german pancakes.

This was the first time I ever made them.  Actually Mickey did all the hard work since I was busy with a few other things.  He did a good job.  They tasted great.  We have lots of leftovers so I don't even have to make breakfast tomorrow.  Nice.

This evening we had our non-traditional dinner at my parents' house with the Ault family.  We had a cookout this year.  We had lovely weather for it too.  Well, at least no snow.  (Looks like we'll be having a green Christmas.)  B was grilling in a winter coat and hat.  There were burgers, dogs, sausages, mac & cheese, baked beans, chips, apple crisp, and cookies galore.

Now it's time to put the kids to bed.  And myself too.  The morning will come way to soon for me.

Merry Christmas to all.  And to all a good night.
