Christmas in Colorado

With Baby C just under 10 weeks away from making his or her grand entrance into the world, Adam and I will be spending the Christmas Holiday here in Colorado.  This is our fifth year living here, and our first time staying in CO for Christmas.  As it approaches I have mixed feelings about missing the Holiday in Missouri.  Of course I'll miss seeing our families and partaking in the normal Christmas traditions I've had for the last 27 years, but I must admit that I am looking forward to starting our own family traditions as a family of 3 (well almost).  We are lucky enough to have my aunt, uncle and their daughters nearby, so we'll be heading up Christmas evening to spend time with them, but for the rest of the weekend it will be all us, all the time.

Now I'm planning in my head what food I will make over the long weekend.  First up- breakfast on Christmas morning!  Here are some of the DELICIOUS looking things I've found so far.

I've made these a few times and LOVE them.  We've also used sausage chunks instead of bacon.  They are SO easy- can do them on just any normal weekend.

OK, so maybe we'd have to use a much smaller loaf of bread for just the two of us :)

Only 100 calories!

Can you tell I'm craving sweet things right now?  I'm not afraid to admit that the two things I want to try the most are the cinnamon pulls and the pumpkin donuts.  Of course I would add some fruit for some nutritional value, but who wants to search for fruit dish ideas?

Happy planning for your Christmas meals!
