Christmas Breakfast

I cooked breakfast for my family this Christmas. It wasn't anything too elaborate just a couple of casseroles, bacon, and saugage swirls. But I understand a little of what my mom went through when we were younger. I prepared the casseroles the night before but there was still a lot of cooking to do in the morning. I went back and forth from opening presents and cooking, trying not to burn anything while I was focused on my gifts! Mom's really must have super powers! Anyways, everyone seemed to enjoy the food so it was a success!

Sausage swirls! My brother said they looked gross (like dogfood) but tasted good!

My sister is expecting her first child in August! I'm so excited! I knew way before my other family did because my sister wanted to tell them in person. Not saying anything was really hard. It was so fun to watch everyone's faces when my sister told them! My brother got teary eyed. So sweet. My sister is having a difficult pregnancy but she's strong so she'll be ok. I can't wait to meet my nephew or niece (I want a nephew!) I'm going to be the best aunt ever!!

Below are pictures of when my sister told my family. The each opened a box that had a onesie in it. They said: I'm nuts about grandpa, I'm nuts about grandma, My auntie Brittany loves me, and my favorite- If you think I'm cute you should see my uncle Joey!

My mom is super excited! New dad too!

Joe and Britt! You can't see it but Joe has tears in his eyes!
