I made sticky buns for the kids to eat Christmas morning. I prepared them the night before, let them rise in the refrigerator overnight, and stuck them in the oven in the morning. I wasn’t sure if they would work made ahead that way, but they were perfectly delicious. I’m going to do this more often now!
We made it to church, but I think everyone that saw me thought I should have stayed home! I really did not feel great. Bobby was up half the night and was extra fussy all morning.
After church we picked up fast food on the way home! Yes there are actually places open on Christmas Day! When we finished eating the kids opened their gifts. I held a fussy Bobby the entire time and I think this is the first year I didn’t get one single photo of the kids opening gifts.
My plan had been to begin cooking our Christmas turkey dinner after this but I was exhausted. I threw up my hands with a few tears mixed in and declared I was just too tired to start in cooking all afternoon, but no one seemed to mind after I told them I’d do it the next morning. Jason had Monday off so it worked out great.
I didn’t make quite all the sides that I usually do, but still managed a turkey dinner. I ruined the turkey though. It was bland and rubbery–ew! I also found out a loaf of bread still works when you put in an extra cup of flour too, albeit not as tasty. All in all I was glad to have it done. Now the kids all want to know what I’m making for New Year’s…
