Hosted a brunch today and celebrated a day early with my family and neighbors. The menu consisted of two new recipes: a red wine cake - delicious! and a Pillsbury Festive Egg and Sausage Bake. We also had lyonnaise potatoes, baked ham, buns, apple dumplings (Ree Drummond's recipe), a cheese and cracker tray, frosted cut-out sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, mimosas, milk, sodas. Whew! I think that's about all. After bellies were full, we handed out the gifts. Well, most of them. Found a slew of them later hidden behind the t.v. Poor Cammi, no wonder she asked if there were more presents. I can't imagine what she thought when I said no, and had only handed her a bag with a few items while her sister had a huge pile in front of her to open. And Jacob, I don't think he opened anything. I was so busy, I didn't notice. But luckily, Mom spied them before Cam left and made her one happy little girl and then Mom drove Jake's and Bren's out to them.
The big guys watched some of the football game and later, when everyone was gone, I took a little nap. And now, I am going to bed, but just wanted to say, Merry Christmas!!!!!
