Our family grows and it can be hectic finding a time that works for everyone to get together. One of the "traditions" we have started is to get together with one branch of the family mid month to exchange our presents.
My daughter fixed brunch for everyone and set the table with her pretty holiday dishes. You'll notice a couple things out of line, a couple of toddlers were anxious to get started.
We had a delicious French toast casserole, bacon, fruit and juice along with tea for our brunch. Daughter isn't a coffee drinker, can you believe that?
It was a lovely if somewhat hectic time. 4 of the guests were less than 3 years old. This way of celebrating the holidays with family works well for us. I don't think it is so overwhelming for the little ones either.
Now it is time to take my cup of coffee and head over to Elizabeth's to see what others have been doing. Join me if you can, there are always interesting things going on there.
