Christmas is two weeks away. The rest of the world might be bustling along the city sidewalks and such, but I’m pretty much in hibernation mode. Being a thousand weeks pregnant finding something appealing to wear is just as exhausting as the idea of bundling up and leaving the house. Plus, it’s like a bazillion degrees freezing and that’s no place for the likes of me.
Considering that Christmas is one month before Harper’s arrival, we aren’t traveling anywhere this year. I have to admit, that I really love this. As in, my heart jumps for joy at the idea of waking up in my own home on Christmas with not a single place to go. We have always traveled to one place or the other for holidays, and while seeing family is great, it can be so very exhausting. I mean, have you ever been house guests with a two year old, nothing relaxing about that. Nothing.
Being that this will be our last Christmas as a family of three, I can’t think of anything better than spending the entire holiday with just us, soaking in those moments before our lives change forever. There will be baking and Christmas movies. There will be cozy fires and lights on the tree. There will be coffee and this breakfast casserole. There will be gifts and stockings, and a the sweetest two year old to make it all so much fun. We’ll prepare a small feast with crab cakes as the main attraction. We’ll read the Christmas story and pretend that Hudson is paying attention. And all of that sounds absolutely perfect to me. Just perfect.
What about you friends, what are your plans for the holidays? What are you most excited about this year?
P.S. In the breakfast casserole, I use sausage instead of bacon and tater tots in place of hash browns.
