Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas, I hope your holidays are joyous and safe.

We had a great holiday, went to church twice yesterday. I didn’t actually get to enjoy either service because the youngest is in an extremely difficult mood ALL THE TIME.

For Christmas Eve, after dinner and church we have a toast towards the new year and then have snacks. Then the kids get to open one gift before bed. Every year my mom makes a ton of cookies, chocolate chip, peanut butter, jam filled. This year I wanted to help so I made several treats.

I made a yule log cake, the exact recipe that my Grandmother made every Christmas. This is our first Christmas without both of my Grandmothers (they both passed away this year) so I made one to honor her.

It tastes better than it looks!

I was extremely proud of myself because it turned out really well! My dad says it tasted just like the one his mom made.

I also made hot chocolate bombs, this years craze. They were pretty simple, if there is any interest I’ll blog just about them.

We made a MESS

The bombs are very fun and are not complicated to make. So we will probably make them as regular treats for our friends.

How was your holiday? Do you have any traditions?
