Early Christmas Celebration

This year we are traveling for Christmas. We celebrated with my family the Sunday before. The day begun with the traditional dog walk.

Then we headed inside to warm up with cinnamon rolls (this recipe halved) and tea while the kids prepared the meal.

We opened stockings and presents and laughed our way through the afternoon. All too soon, it was time to head back to our house to pack up everything for our early start the following morning.
