Two new things:

A digital camera and a blog — neither of which I quite know how to use yet! Please be patient with me during this period of experimental posting :-). Let’s begin with a sampling of treats from Christmas day, mmmmm …

Following family tradition, I stayed at my dad’s house Christmas Eve night, up in the guest room with my Aunt Mary. We woke up bright and early around 8:30am and chatted about the mysterious footsteps we heard in the middle of the night. Ghosts?? Sufficiently spooked, we headed downstairs to start poking around for breakfast.

I started with a steamy and festive mug of Earl Grey tea with skim:

I found out that my stepmom was planning to heat up a couple of quiches. Not being a quiche girl, I set to work making fruit salad for everyone (using fruit left over from dessert the night before!) and oatmeal for me.

We got to opening presents, and somehow this tin appeared on my lap. I had one and quickly removed them from my sight!

Knowing we were headed for an enormous dinner at my stepmom’s family’s house, I tried to restrain myself for the rest of the morning/afternoon with probably 7 more mugs of tea and these:

Small handful of baby carrots (x5!!)
