Santa Came to Town 2015

Merry Christmas loves! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday this year. I spent my Christmas surrounded by my amazing family in Pittsburgh for the first time in about ten years.

My morning started with my adorable golden retriever, Leo, opening his gifts from Santa. He had a blast playing with all of his new toys and taring apart the wrapping paper!

My mom made me a warm glass of peppermint hot chocolate while I opened my presents from Santa. My drink tasted better than any Starbucks hot chocolate I’ve ever had!

I made Cinnamon French Toast Bake for my family this Christmas morning, and it was delicious. I cannot wait to share the recipe with all of you in a future post!

The rest of our day consisted of preparing Christmas dinner for our entire family for that evening. My mom and I made lobster, steak, asparagus, sweet potato casserole, scalloped potatoes, and rolls. Yummy!!

The desserts this evening were without a doubt my FAVORITE part! I baked gingerbread, sugar, peanut butter, and key lime cookies as a special treat to share with my family. We also had a delicious pumpkin pie with a huge dollop of whipped cream and a chocolate log cake to celebrate my Uncle’s birthday.
