Christmas is Over.

I'm somewhere in the middle of can't believing Christmas is already over and celebrating that Christmas is finally over. 

That being said, I couldn't get the Christmas decorations down fast enough. I'm beyond ready to start doing house stuff.

Here's a quick rundown:

The one thing that was done differently this year was that my dad made cocoa and toast for everyone on Christmas Eve morning.

(I don't know the origin of cocoa and toast but it's a childhood favorite of our family. It's best with toast that's almost burnt, too much butter and you dip the toast in the cocoa.)

The kids did more drinking than dipping, but they'll learn.

After that it was our usual party on Christmas Eve. The men are in charge of the food and they did a great job with everything. 

Cookies and milk were left out and The Night before Christmas was read.

Christmas Day was a blur. Santa came. Presents were opened. 

Naps were taken.

We had a great Christmas. Hope everyone did too.

  1. The. cocoa and toast was started when I was a kid by Aunt Mary. Johnny had it every morning for breakfast. She made the best! Your dad and I adopted it as our favorite too! Best made with real cocoa powder!

  3. Cocoa and toast (or brioche (untoasted)) is a very French thing to do for breakfast.
