The next best thing to a White Christmas

Nothing to report on from the kitchen front as I haven't cooked dinner in more than a week! I am loving my cook-cation...almost as much as all the holiday fun.

No snow this Christmas, as it was in the low 50s Christmas Eve. But regardless, Christmas Eve and morning were wonderful, with the boys' excitement reaching a fever pitch just as we were preparing for Santa to visit us.

As R said when he woke up Christmas morning, "I think I heard reindeer last night on our roof!"

I replied, "you did!?"

R: "Yes, but I only heard Dasher and Rudolph. I didn't hear any of the other reindeer."

Here are some quick pictures:

R was a bit disappointed (and concerned about Santa's sleigh riding without the snow) that we didn't have a White Christmas, but if you can't have snow, how about record high temperatures a couple days after Christmas in the high 60s?

Yeah, I decided that "go-outside-and-play-with-no-coats" weather trumps a white week.

Hope your holiday has been Merry,

Such cute little pictures! Glad to hear your holidays were good!

The play kitchen Santa left A and E was a hit. I've got two future chefs on my hand.

Oh, and I got a the Cuisinart Griddle/Panini I think you need to do some panini recipes!
