Christmas 2014 Recap

Belated Merry Christmas greetings to those of you who celebrate that holiday!

For the first time in the almost 10 years I've lived in Maine, I actually spent Christmas in Maine!  Usually I got to family in NH but they were leaving very early on Christmas day to head to FL so we decided to get together when they come back and that worked out great for me.

On Christmas eve, one of us was busy doing last minute wrapping.  This was the pile of things that needed to be taken care of:
And this was how Beau spent his Christmas Eve!  Lazy hound dog.....
I had all the ingredients we usually have for Christmas morning, cinnamon rolls and a breakfast casserole.  Being on my own, it allowed me to try out a new recipe from Southern Living magazine - Cheesey Sausage and Croissant casserole.  It was good!

I also had the makings for Mimosas on hand which are traditional in my family.  Quite a nice way to get some Vitamin C!
And after that I settled in to open a few gifts.  A friend came by around noon and we went out to lunch at a local Chinese restaurant and then took a long walk in the ridiculously warm weather (53!!) with the dog.
I hope that wherever you were and whoever you were with, you had a nice day.

It's a rainy day here today so I'm planning to sort out what my stitching plans are and do some knitting which I will share tomorrow.
