Christmas Day, 2011

Since we did all of our family traditions on Christmas Eve, Christmas morning was very much like any other Sunday morning in our house.  I slept in a little (8:00) and by that time Matt had already headed off to Chapel.

During the service I was excited to be able to serve communion beside Matt.  What an honor to serve my friends at ChapelNext this special sacrament.

After church we came back to my house to have a very relaxing afternoon with our friends, letting babies (and daddies) nap.  We made a big breakfast with biscuits, bacon, pancakes (sausage pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, and traditional pancakes), gravy, eggs, and hashbrown casserole.  And, of course, coffee.

We ate until we could eat no more and took a few pictures of the babies in their cute Christmas clothes.  Afterwards we chilled and relaxed all day.  Honestly, I don’t remember what else we did that day, so I’d guess we played a card game or something.  It was such a day of relaxing that I don’t have specific memories, just an overall warm-fuzzy.

Connor loved this truck set.  He wasn’t feeling his best all week so most of my pictures of him were of him sleeping or just pitiful.  I’m glad Aimee caught this one of him actually playing.

Zak making sausage pancakes.  Who woulda’ thought to add sausage to the batter?!?  So good!

Love lazy Sundays.

The only hope we had to get these three to sit still for any length of time was M&Ms.  You can see Jessica giving them to Parker and all the funny faces they made as they ate this rare treat.

    I have to hear more about these sausage pancakes. What kind of sausage?? Do you add anything else with it?

    • Jennifer says:

      This time we used turkey sausage but any breakfast sausage will do. Brown it and then I think just pour your pancake onto the griddle and sprinkle the sausage into it. I don’t think he mixed the sausage into the batter first. (I’ll have to ask Zak. He was in charge of pancakes.)
