Christmas Day

Christmas day is a LOT less running around than Christmas eve for me. We spend the day {mostly} at home - starting with presents exchanged between Mama Bear and her babes {Grandma joined us this year}. Once the mimosa's start flowing it's time to start making dinner.

This year the menu consisted of Prime rib, twice baked potatoes, Burgundy mushrooms {yeah - these cooked for 6 hours!!}, asparagus, and a delicious salad. Christmas cookies and treats were waiting for us after.

Here are some special moments from today. I got to spend time with almost ALL of my cousins this weekend - I couldn't ask for anything more.
