I'll admit that I have gotten caught up in all of the hulabaloo of the crazyness that is buying the perfect toy and making sure the girls have exactly 10 presents apiece to open, but that is so not what it is about. It is really about celebrating the fact that a little over 2000 years ago God took on human flesh and came into this world as a baby to give us a way for salvation!
Christmas morning we wake up and open presents and then head to Brian's dad's store where he always cooks a big Christmas breakfast.Last year Anna drew Poppy a picture with apples for him to hang in his store!
We get a Honey Baked ham to eat on Christmas Day and then I fix a simple meal to go along with it. I usually fix tins full of different candy's to give to our family when we have our get togethers. These are the candies that I fix:
*Peanut Butter Fudge
*Puppy Chow (Rice Chex mix with melted choc & PB tossed in powdered sugar!)
*Chocolate Covered PB&Crackers
*Chocolate Covered Pretzels
*Chocolate & PB Buckeyes
I didn't get pics of the candy last year, but here is one of the cheese balls that we love to eat every year. We love snacky type foods that we can just munch on for a few days!
We love this dip/cheese ball! It has three simple ingredients and it is so yummy! You can add different sauces if you want, but it is just as delish with just this:
We hope you have a truly Blessed Christmas!
