Christmas Eve Breakfast

 Homemade salted sesame bagels, toasted and buttered.  Grapefruit and orange salad.  Eggnog sans rum.  Black coffee for the adults.  Really a perfect holiday breakfast. 

Then we opened our presents before packing up for the mountain lodge and snow. 

You can't tell from the photo, but the Lego was Ben's present.

Genevieve adores Aunt Shana's dollhouse, saved carefully with its 1970s furniture.

But meeting baby cousin Levi at the moutains trumps all the toys.  See the big sister graciously allowing her brother to hold the baby first? See the little brother, so rapt with the baby he can't smile or talk?  It was a lovely weekend at the mountain with all the cousins.


  1. A weekend in the mountains with the cousins sounds perfect, as do the simple gifts!

  2. My husband, I mean my daughter, got Legos too. :)

  3. I love G in the last picture. So sweet.

  4. I don't think I've seen such sweetness captured in a picture before. Just lovely all around!

  5. The bagels and citrus salad looked delicious. It sounds like you had an awesome Christmas! happy New Year!

  6. Oh, oh, the dollhouse... sigh. I can't wait until Little Miss is big enough for one! I suspect the children have been enjoying each other's gifts. And, yes, a baby is always best of all.


I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
