Christmas Eve!!

It’s Christmas Eve! It’s Christmas Eve!!! Sometimes I think that I like Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day because of the anticipation and all of the traditions I associate with it. Growing up, the Christmas Day festivities were usually over by 10 AM, but on Christmas Eve we’d play a ton of Christmas music, put up the tree, drive around looking at lights, and watch the classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas. This year is particularly exciting because I get to teach all of my favorite traditions to Trey and learn some of his.

On the more intimidating side, I also have to learn how to make my family’s traditional recipes. We have three really traditional Christmas recipes: Christmas Bread (my mom was 50 before she was entrusted with that recipe, though, so it’ll probably be awhile before I am allowed to try it ;-) ), Christmas Rolls, and our special sugar cookie recipe. Originally I was going to try to make both the rolls and the cookies, but the directions for both were a little overwhelming (who knew that cookies could be complicated?). Instead, I decided to try the rolls and learn how to make the cookies next year.

Here are all my supplies complete with Spotify set to a Christmas playlist =)

*Note the package of yeast. This was my first time ever working with yeast and I was super scared it wouldn’t rise.

But they did rise! They’re not nearly as pretty as my Mom’s or Grandma’s, but they’re still yummy =)

    So, when the year comes that you try the Christmas Bread, do we get to see the recipe??

    Merry Christmas to you both!!

    They look delicious! ( I love the dining room table in the picture). Remind Trey of our tradition of reading the Christmas story–it reminds us of the reason for the season!
