Christmas has taken over at the Twombly household and let me tell ya', it's a beautiful thing! Yesterday Robin finished up our shopping, wonderful man that he is! At home we focused on making Christmas cards for our church friends. We also got all the Christmas goodies into the house for our next two days of Christmas Eve and Christmas.
This year I decided to ask the kids for their favorite party foods. It is really silly for me to exhaust myself on a big turkey dinner when we don't have company and the kids don't care for it. So...here is what we came up with:
Breakfast: Dunkin' Donuts!
Big Meal of the Day:
Christmas Eve: Broiled Steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn
Christmas Day: Lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, homemade bread
The rest of the day we will pick on:
~Apples and grapes
~Baby carrots and cucumbers with Ranch Dip
~Baked Lays Chips
~Sharp cheese and crackers
~Pretzels, strawberries and marshmellows dipped in melted chocolate
~Soda please mom!!
If I can get through the crowds tomorrow early than I am going to buy an ice cream maker. I have been meaning to buy one so that I can make my grandmother's chocolate ice cream. :)
Also on the schedule is that I need to wrap allllll the kids presents and have them help me decorate ginger bread men (oh yeah add that to the list of foods) and then I think that is about it!!
Is anyone out there done with all Christmas preparations?
