Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving with a great herbed turkey dinner which was followed by some of Melissa’s fabulous cupcakes.

Today we celebrated Christmas with a fantastic sweet bread breakfast at Melissa’a house.

Later we opened presents.

Tonight we had sausages and vegetables on ciabatta rolls.

Followed by a chocolate cherry dump cake.

And now we are “Blutoed”–which is our way of saying that we are STUFFED!

Bluto comes from John Belushi’s character in Animal House…

One of the great things about Thanks for Christmas is that we only get Blutoed once, not twice. 🙂
