to Christmas memories...
Merry Christmas morning! Although I can't be with my family, I tried to keep some of our very special Christmas morning traditions...I just wish I could have pulled my sisters out of bed to join me. :)
Opening the 25th door on the Advent calendar to find a Christmas tree, listening to Christmas music, making my mom's oven pancake (with a squeeze of lemon juice, powdered sugar and drizzled with maple syrup) and asparagus spears wrapped in ham with cheddar. Some German Sekt with breakfast makes it extra special! In Minnesota I know they have snow, and a fireplace with stockings...which is a nice thought from rainy Berlin! Fröhliche Weihnachten!
