We decided to open gifts today. I had plenty of time to make Cinnamon rolls and since BreAnne knows that it's a Christmas Morning tradition....I made some for her. I think I would have even without her BIG hints. ::snort::
We had a leisurely morning and opened gifts.

I tend to get the girls a cookbook each year - usually a baking one for BreAnne. She likes to bake and she excels at it. Zander chose a "food cookbook" this year for BreAnne as she's going to "have to learn to cook." Krista loves to cook and Bre loves to bake...it has worked. Of course, Izaak has been on his own for a couple of decades and is proficient at cooking. BreAnne is a good sport...and I know she'll excel at cooking within months. Michael taught me how to cook. Zander picked out (with a bit of coaching) a Pioneer Woman Cookbook for Bre - hard to go wrong with Ree. Krista received the Eat to Live Cookbook (which will fit her eating style much better than Ree).

Dinner was followed by more discussions, a movie and a trial run of Ticket to Ride.
BreAnne and I ended the evening working on addresses for wedding invitations. Yep - wedding in 7 1/2 weeks.
Is she texting Emily? We're excited to meet up with J family - soon.
