I am smack dab in the middle of my blog tour for the 2nd Book in The Fine Art of Deception Series — Somewhere in Time (it released on the 8th), Christmas shopping for my husband and two young boys and preparing for family to visit for the holidays. (whew!) Not sure why it worked out for all of that to land at once, but my life usually goes that way 🙂
For nearly 14 years now, our Christmas morning has been blessed with children’s smiles and giggles and the most drawn-out gift opening ceremony you’ve ever seen. My kids don elf or Santa hats, pass out gifts and insist that only one gift be opened at a time. They love to savor these Christmas mornings.
There’s usually a break in the middle of the action so we can pull the eggs and grits casserole from of the oven. My mother and grandmother used to make this casserole on Christmas mornings, now I make it for our family. Here’s a good recipe for one. We keep ours vegetarian by either omitting the meat or using fake meat crumbles (it’s really good!).
What are your holiday traditions? Leave a comment below with your answer and I’ll pick one winner to receive a Somewhere in Time bookmark!
