Best. Christmas. Ever. Print Recipe Print Recipe

A quiet Christmas, just the two of us and it was PERFECT!

We ate. Gluten-free Pancakes, delicious! My husband got creative with mine…

We drank. Mimosas and then later, Bloody Marys.

We were spoiled. There are some traditions I hope never end – referring to the little blue box.

We didn’t bake, but apparently Santa thinks I should have. I agree.

We snacked. BEST & most addicting {homemade} Chex Mix.

We Competed. I’ll be posting our Gingerbread houses for YOU to judge!

We cooked. Our very FIRST Turkey and it was AMAZING! Sorry about the view…

I’m in heaven. Shot this with my NEW camera lens: 60mm 2.8 Macro.

Although we weren’t with family this Christmas, my husband and I decided to create our own traditions. I know I already told you, but it was honestly the best Christmas. Aside from everything listed above; we laughed, we played, we danced and we sang. Seriously, we did all those things even though we can’t dance and we can’t sing. We didn’t care.

{NEW} Thiele Traditions:

Christmas Eve: {Shredded} Chicken tacos, wine and exchange of gifts between my husband and I.

Christmas Morning: Pancake breakfast with mimosas, unwrap gifts, Skype with family, decorate gingerbread houses, and roast a turkey.

What are some of your Christmas traditions?

    I love the little blue box tradition. I get one every year! xo

  • Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

    That sounds like the best Christmas. Making your own traditions with your husband is the best Christmas gift you could have given each other, that is going to last a lifetime.

  • Linda Baker

    Love seeing what you and Ben have created for the two of you!

  • Eden Hill

    Lisa, I made a gingerbread house this year too. I would love to see how yours turned out! Who won?

  • With Style and Grace

    Oh our little gingerbread houses… we ended up getting sidetracked and didn’t complete them. I’ll have to send you the picture, it’s quite disappointing… I think the next year we’re in Leavenworth, we should decorate gingerbread houses, what do you think? Hope you had a great Christmas miss Eden!

    The GF pancakes we’re completely from scratch. We love Pamela’s Pancake mix (recipe’s on the back), you can get it at Whole Foods. This time I just added some vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg – it was so good!
