Peanut m&m's

...For breakfast. Yum! Only 4 of them. But they were good.
Anyhow, that's not really what I wanted to talk about. I just wanted to say we had a really nice christmas. We were mostly at home, my hubby felt it was too much to have his mom and brother plus spend all day at my moms like normal, with my mom being sick and all. At first I felt like protesting. But he was right. It was really great the way it worked out.

Christmas eve we gave everyone stockings. The kids got new little toys and movies, candy etc so they just piddlefarted around all day. I had gotten my gift, new hot pink nikes ;) early so I went out running. I finished my book. We all took a long nap. Later in the evening we took a walk in th dark and saw christmas lights. Then after putting the kids to bed we did the raqlette grill.

The raqlette grill is european. Kind of like a griddle. But with individual little dishes under it. What you do is grill turkey breast strips or chicken on top. And toast your buttered french bagette bread and in the dishes melt cheese with onions if you like or an egg. My hubby likes to add corn and tomatoes etc. Anyhow, you sit around this grill and drink wine and eat bread and cheese. What could be better? :)

Christmas morning. . . I slept in :) then we opened all presents and proceeded to relax again til we went to my parents for dinner at 330. 1 were there til 930 due to a freakout session macy had, but that's a whole other story :) (she tends to get overwelmed in new places when she is passed around a lot) Overall it was a great holiday. How was yours?
