ebelskivers and legos...christmas goodies

Ebelskivers were a childhood Christmas Eve tradition. My mom would make a huge batch of them for Christmas Eve dinner, and I mean huge. What could be better than a round pancake ball/doughnut dipped in sugar and or jam...for dinner? Even better was that we would compete to see who could eat the most! Delicious! Well, for Christmas, I got my first Ebelskiver pan and Jason kindly broke it in by cooking a delicious batch of "cinnamon-bun filled pancakes", a Williams Sonoma recipe. They were quite tasty, and I'm pretty sure our kids have a new favorite breakfast (or dinner) food!

Jason in action!

Legos are also a new addition at our house. Tyler has become quite the little builder. He loves to look at the directions and put them together piece by piece. We are quite impressed :). He started with little Creator sets that had approximately 70-80 pieces. But for Christmas, he received a lego fire station that had 600 pieces and he built it within two days! He built 99% of it all by himself, with the slightest help from Daddy.

Tyler and his fully constructed lego fire station...600 pieces in all!
