Teddy finally got his toy! He has been very anxious about getting his “squeak squeak” when he found out it was in his stocking. We opened presents with my family in the morning, and then made a breakfast feast.
I prepped the Christmas Strata the night before. It was super! Sauteed onions, red peppers, green peppers, turnip greens, mushrooms, zucchini, cheddar and feta cheese, eggs, milk, and french baguette. We also made belgium waffles and topped them with fresh raspberries. Delish!
Dad and I got cameras this year. Mine is a Canon EOS Rebel t3, and it takes awesome pics. It’s my first dslr 😉 It came with the standard lens, and I ordered a 50mm lens which should be in on Thursday. Yay for food photos with edge blur and a clear picture.
In the afternoon, we went over to Mimi’s and spent time with Eric’s family. She made some awesome food. I had a turkey sandwich with cranberry and cream cheese spread, jello salad, mac and cheese, dressing, and some pineapple.
There were tons of desserts, I chose a slice of strawberry cheesecake and a few nibbles of an Andes mint cookie.
The festivities continued throughout the night. We went over to Eric’s parents house and exchanged gifts too. We were totally exhausted after the long day we crawled into bed and slept in. Glad we are off from work today. Hope you all enjoyed your holiday!
