Hey There Big Guy

We were casually strolling through Ikea when what to our wandering eye would appear?  Santa in the children's department.  I guess the elves had too many orders this year so Santa was picking up a few items!

Elle wasn't so sure at first.

Chatting about Christmas eve.

Posing for a picture as Elle won't get out of her stroll.

Santa even checked in with Baylor.

What a beautiful Santa!  Guess he shops at Ikea every Christmas, next year we will be dressed up in case we run into the big guy again!!

Breakfast Cupcakes

Best quick breakfast ever!!

Super easy recipe:

Breakfast cupcakes

6 Bread or English Muffins
6 slices bacon
6 large eggs
1 cup cheese
salt and pepper

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups.

Cut round circles using cup or biscuit cutter out of break or English muffin (I used English muffin).  Lightly butter.  Sprinkle cheese on.

2.In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, 4 minutes, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.) Lay 1 bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until egg whites are just set, 10-15 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts. Serve immediatelyPosted by Picasa

Ornament With Grandma S

Baylor is quite excited about his first Christmas!

Grandma S came over and gave Baylor a bell ornament for the tree.

They had to find the perfect spot on the tree first.

Decorating the neighborhood

Our neighbors put up a snowman this year!  Elle is in love and has to inspect it every evening. 

Elle got into the action setting up her navity scene in her toy corner of the living room.

Colby did a great job this year with lights this year with snowflakes, lights, small optical trees, and the bushs.

I forgot to light up the tree for the picture...
