Merry Christmas to All and Hope there are Little tears!

LOL Christmas usually involves me busting into tears ... I know as my parents would say stop being so sensitive. So this year will be different right? Oh come on it's family it will lead to tears even when they are not here to celebrate with you. I'm going to be calm and serene and enjoy the peace, yeah right what house do you think I'm in?

So I'm thinking it's all behind me we'll do Christmas in the morning with my parents then they will leave and we'll do our Christmas dinner. Well at least that was the plan then it was switched to them stopping by Christmas eve after Rick is off work. Well there goes going to church for Christmas Eve. And during all this Rick tells me the reason my mom thinks I don't want to got to Christmas at her cousins house is because of my weight! Merry Christmas to me queue the tears. Ok little back ground I've always struggled with my weight, I lost 80 lbs for our wedding then of course got pregnant on our honeymoon, finally lost most of the weight and guess what pregnant again. So here I am baby #2 and far from where I would love to be. No sob story just the way it goes, so fast forward to now. I still go to parties mind you I even went to this persons house last year at the same weight I am now! So no I am not avoiding the party due to weight I'm choose not to go to someone's house that is not my immediate family. I want to enjoy my Christmas with the people close to me and I'm not sorry you wont be here but I'm going to enjoy my day so please no more hits!

The Christmas Sasuage Breakfast is ready to go, we've opened up our Santa Gifts. The kids are enjoying some leapfrog gifts, all the DVD's and Dad is going back to bed before he enjoys the Wii. How come they can go back and lay down while we stay up with the kids taking care of them? Hmmm yup the hits keep on coming and I seem to be the whacking tree!

KYS I know you're locking yourself in your bathroom please make room, mine is too small and doesn't have a window for easy escape. I need to go hide, no more hits please I really want to have a nice day. I'm taking my over-sensitive fluffy arse to go sit on the couch. Yup I'll have a coffee and cookie with that and anybody that has a comment well I have a cookie you can chew on instead .... LOL just playing sorry been one of those days and it's only just begun.

P.S. Just because it would be fun mom bought the boys slinkies! Oh joy metal that you can swing around your head and throw at people link a slingshot! Oh joy my world is going to be wonderful right?

And I leave you with my Christmas morning tradition
Sausage Casserole (recipe below)
Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole
Ingredients:
6 to 8 slices egg bread, crusts trimmed
2 lbs. link sausage, cooked and drained
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 lg. onion, sliced
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 c. milk
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 c. shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
5 eggs, beaten
Alexis Note: I buy a loaf of french bread and tear it up. EASY. I buy the sausage rolls, I use dried onion flakes, since there is more bread I use 10 eggs and skip the mushrooms! It's up to you experiment!
Bake:
Spray a 9 x 13-inch pan or casserole dish with Pam.

Line the bottom with bread. Arrange cooked link sausages on top.

Sauté onion in oil over medium heat until clear, about 2 minutes. Add mushroom and sauté until limp, for 4-5 minutes.

Arrange over sausages. Whisk together eggs, milk, and soup.

Ladle over the onion mixture. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over the top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Bake, uncovered, until heated through, about 40 minutes.

Serves 4.

  1. Screw people that aim to ruin your joy. Take it where you can find it. You will learn this as you get older. Trust me....

    The kids look so happy - THAT is what is important. Look forward, not back.

  5. Once again, loved the picture collages. I tried, but was too much in a hurry to figure it out. I had 20 minutes to upload photos to get them in calendars and still delivered by Christmas Eve. I'll try again this week.

  10. Sorry it took me a while to get to your blog. I've been locked in the bathroom for the last 48 hours. And yes - there is plenty of room for you. Anytime you need to run away you can hide out here. I'll even let you have a spare bedroom too so you don't have to sleep in the bathtub.

    Smooches to you and your adorable boys!

  11. Sorry they keep on wacking you... you really don't deserve any of it! You are a fabulous wife and mother! You make people happy every single day, and you are there for more people and help more people than you will ever know.
    The boys know that you love them and the joy in their lives shows on thier faces in every post you do! (Just look at that picture of Caden if you are ever in doubt.)
    Thanks for being you! {{{HUGS}}}

  13. First of all, You know you are welcome to come hide here anytime you would like. I'll even let you stay indefinitely in my spare room (computer in there so you could work if you had too...) And I am honored you used my cookie dough for Santa! I was worried cuz I took it out of my fridge and it was really stiff...hope you let it warm up a bit cuz that was the key for me! Merry Christmas!

  15. Sounds like a wonderful Christmas! That sausage breakfast sounds a lot like the one that I made for Rich's grandma's breakfast. And the Wii is awesome! My parents have one and after using it a few times Rich and I are wishing we had one too! We'll probably just end up using theirs when we visit ;-)

    LOVE that plate too! Santa was probably pretty bummed to see ours-LOL! ;-)
