Our Christmas festivities began when we had my family and some of the M&Ms’ friends over for brunch on Christmas Eve. (No, we didn’t have brunch in the evening, that would be silly. If you’re one of those people who thinks Christmas Eve is only the evening, then we had brunch in the morning before Christmas Eve.)
We started this off with something that has quickly become a Christmas tradition in our family: Silly String. Last year, Bunny and I bought each of the M&Ms a can of it for fun and they haven’t stopped talking about it since. This year, the thing they most hoped for was more silly string, so we decided to turn it up to 11. With about 25 cans of “Crazy Streamers” from the dollar store; parents, children, aunts, uncles and even a grandma got in on it. The tree was redecorated. As were: people, floors, walls, shelves, and even ceiling.

This was followed up with enough food to feed an army: pancakes and waffles (or crispier pancakes, depending who you ask), berries, whipped cream, turkey bacon, bacon, and cinnamon buns for dessert.
