December 31st

What are you doing New Year's Eve? My husband and I have never been ones to be out and about for this holiday. We were engaged at my parents' home just after midnight on New Year's 2009, and since then, we have stayed home every year. This year, my husband and I are again staying at home--this time with our little one, our first new year with a child!

Post your plans in the comments below.

Today is Christmas Eve. If you're like me, you're busy cooking and baking for tonight and tomorrow. But what will you do for breakfast for tomorrow morning? I remember watching a Christmas episode of "Eight is Enough" years ago about the family drinking juice--and eating breakfast? My memory isn't that good!--before opening gifts. My little family does this; we prefer eating breakfast before opening gifts, at least while our daughter is still just a baby and doesn't know about the gifts awaiting her! Still, this is the year that I decided to start making a make-ahead breakfast casserole so that I am not frying bacon or flipping pancakes on Christmas morning. I got the idea from Taste of Home's January 2013 issue.

What do you do for breakfast on Christmas morning? Post your Christmas breakfast plans in the comments below.
