Luckiest Girl in the World December 25, 2010

MERRY CHRISTMAS morning! SANTAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! I got ummm….a full 40 minutes of sleep (Elf anyone?), had a great chat with my sister, and jumped out of bed at 5 a.m. We have to wait to wake my parents up at 7 a.m. Am I 5 years old? YESSSSS!

Christmas morning is possibly my favorite day of the year…it’s so full of surprises and family and fun and traditions at my house.

I made coffee to kill time hehe. I bought this especially for Christmas morning coffee a few weeks ago…

It was not as good as the peppermint mocha coffee I got from Clare (from World Market), but still a treat.

I’ll let the pictures speak from here…enjoy!

After 3 hours of opening gifts, it was high time for some breakfast! Mom made maple pancakes, country ham, bacon, eggs, grits, and biscuits. I tasted her pancakes and ham, but I made my own breakfast of leftover yogurt fruit salad from last night with added blueberries and Naturally More (I went all day yesterday without any, believe it or not!)…

…and a egg mess of 2 egg whites, 1 regular egg with various spices, cheddar-style Daiya, and Garlic Gold nuggets…

It was yummy!!! And I had a special plate for my egg 😉

My family really got me some thoughtful things this year. They took my hints, but made them surprises. I appreciate and love them more than I can tell y’all. I’m so humbled by their generosity. I hope that y’all have a wonderful day! I’ll have our traditional dinner to blog about later. Happy Birthday, Jesus! I wish you and your family a Merry, Merry Christmas!
