I had been brainstorming trying to figure out what to do for Christmas and knew that I didn't want to cook. While watching the Neelys on Food Network they were talking about a holiday menu of "little nibbles" so I suggested to Mr. Love Bird that we hit up Trader Joe's and get lots of yummy food to nibble on Christmas Day. We'd play Wii, watch movies and eat to our hearts' content all while staying in our PJs. He loved my idea and it was a simple plan to follow! Our "menu" consisted of mac & cheese balls, bibimbap bowls, chicken cilantro dumplings, pigs in a blanket, chicken sticks and molten chocolate cake with caramel swirl ice cream. It was heaven!
Nia and I were up at 7:30a.m. Skyping with my sisters then we fell back asleep and woke up around 12:30p.m. to open presents.
Here are a few highlights (please disregard the ashy knees - I had been down on the floor kneeling with Nia and didn't realize how badly I needed lotion! LOL!):
|It took a minute for her to understand that she needed to rip open the paper!|

|Yes, we have become an Elmo household|
