I Love the Perfect Weekend

We have had such a great weekend. And it's not even over yet! Friday night after work we did a little Christmas shopping, and I got the cutest jeans for less than half-price at Macy's. Is there a better way to start the weekend?

Yesterday we went downtown to Kathryn Albertson Park to have pictures taken. It was kind of windy and not very warm. Add to that the fact that Valerie ran around like a wild child, and you get wind-blown hair, rosy cheeks, and runny noses. Nevertheless, I'm hoping we got some great ones. The photographer sent me this one to tide me over until he's finished with the rest.

After pictures, we went to Bajio for lunch. Yummy! Then, we came home and took a nap. I'm not much of a naptaker, but it was great. I got most of my housework done last night while listening to Christmas music (I just couldn't hold out). A few snowflakes fell, and a thick fog came in and seems to have decided to stay a while - which I love.

For breakfast this morning, we made ebelskivers, one of my absolute favorites. We tried a recipe from Williams Sonoma that is truly to die for: Cinnamon-Bun Filled Pancakes. You can get the recipe here. Seriously, they are soooooooooooooooooo good.

The rest of the day will be filled with church, visits with friends, and dinner at Grandma's. Who could ask for a better weekend? I hope you all had a great one as well.

I'm sure your pictures are darling, especially if this sample peek is any indication of what's to come. I love aebleskivers! Now I've got a new recipe to try.

I bought my gingerbread pancake molds at Williams-Sonoma about ten years ago...I'm old, I tell ya. But, I'm pretty sure the little North Pole set will be making its way to my table soon. I'm a pancake and French toast fiend.

Have a great Sunday!
