The Seventh Day of Christmas Crafts: A North Pole Breakfast

I love having my kids home from school for Christmas Break! I make every effort possible to have all the prep work done for Christmas before they are out for the break, and we have two weeks of fun! I found the cutest idea for a special breakfast here, but decided that instead of having it on the day after Thanksgiving I would save it for the first Monday of Christmas break. We invited a few friends over and had breakfast in our jammies, the Moms too!

I got fun Santa plates and cups and wrote the names on the cups for each kiddo. Fun story, I had the table all set and put the three candles in the center. It lacked something, but I couldn't find anything around the house to put with it. I had pretty much given up when our doorbell rang. It was the FedEx man dropping off a package from DH's company. The present was packed in shredded green, red, and gold crinkle paper! I gleefully finished off the table about 10 minutes before everyone arrived. Talk about perfect timing!
My last minute crinkle paper! Perfect touch, no?
The one day I break my objection to paper plates. :)
Even our elf, Fred Pequeno, dropped by for breakfast!

And what better breakfast to serve than reindeer pancakes? These were a hit with the kids!
All in all a fun Monday morning. Hopefully this will become an annual tradition!
