North Pole Breakfast

Today was our annual North Pole breakfast..(we are on year 3!!) I was kinda afraid it would not happen with a slight scare of my water breaking last night (with #5) but lucky for it is was just a scare:)

Joel and I prepped the table last night and got everything ready for this morning… 10885351_10152968167454626_7742897964824412650_n 10885453_10152968167639626_546575882552603270_n

North Pole breakfast means different things to different families.. for us it is all things ‘christmasy’ santa, reindeers, snowman, those sort of things. We do it on Christmas eve and it is a great start to a day full of fun!! This year it wasn’t decorated like i wanted it to be.. but the kids loved it non the same!

A few days ago Levi and I went on a date and through chatting with him, he mentioned his favorite christmas memory is this the North Pole Breakfast!:)

The family!

The family! Lydia didn’t understand why we were all looking this way.. it was kinda funny!

Breakfast includes, pancakes, bacon, orange juice, hot chocolate with a candy cane stirrer, snowman donuts, and a banana/strawberry candy cane:)

The boys anxious to start!

The kids anxious to start!

The kids get one gift, its the one in the boxes.. I look throughout the year trying to find the perfect ornament that describes them that year… and then before we eat they get to open it and put it on the tree.. its neat to see them SOO excited!
