I can not believe that we are less than a week away from Christmas.  I have no idea where the time has gone!!  My son has his last day of school today.  Which means I should have presents bought and wrapped, work done, cookies baked, and everything else ready for Christmas.  Like maybe know what is on our Christmas dinner menu, and have it purchased.  But I am not sure that any of that stuff is done yet.  We might be close to done shopping, but not all of the stuff has arrived yet, and I have yet to wrap a single present.  Each year I start December off really well, and tell myself I will keep up and not get buried at the end.  I think I always just think I can do more than is possible.

Do you have a family tradition for Christmas morning?  When I was growing up we ALWAYS had French Toast for breakfast.  Even now, when we celebrate with my parents and my brother in January, we will have French Toast for breakfast.  The same recipe every year as well.  So when I had my own little family, I decided we would try something different.  My son is obsessed with anything cinnamon, so we have cinnamon rolls.  I wish I could say I make them from scratch each year, but I don’t.  I buy the frozen ones, so I don’t have to do any work on Christmas morning.  This year when we celebrate with my family, I am going to try my best to see if I can get them to try a new recipe for French Toast. This Eggnog French Toast needs to become a tradition!
