I mentioned earlier this was Jim and my first Christmas alone so we were excited about starting new traditions. We first decided the Christmas tree with presents all around was too lovely to be left alone all night so we brought our mattress into the living room and slept there! We fell asleep to Christmas Vacation (a favorite) and to too much peppermint ice cream. We woke up late the next morning to presents and then made this quick and easy frittata with biscuits. Jim even remembered to find the pickle in the tree this year!

It was the laziest morning you could imagine and it was perfect. I realized how geeky I was when I opened a wacom tablet, a japanese brass bike bell, a hunger games notebook and nice new #2 pencils. Luckily i'll never catch up with Jim in the nerd category...

We were also happy because about the time we got bored with our new toys our family arrived for Christmas number two! We have been spending the last few days with them shopping, walking on the beach and playing games. The perfect holiday break. 

How was your Christmas? Do you have any fun traditions I would like to steal for next year?? 


  1. i bet you're loving your wacom! hard to remember life before it, huh? :)

    1. it really is the best! i have an exciting day planned tomorrow of practicing and discovering all it can do.
