Christmas Eve = Baking Madness!

Christmas Eve = Baking Madness!

Since we’ll be grocery shopping and baking like mad on Christmas Eve I am pre-writing this blog post.

Thankfully I am over the car drama stressing thanks to my therapeutic cinnamon roll baking and my ever fluctuating hormone levels. Once again I am making about 7 pans of Oowey, gooey, heaven in a pan, cinnamon rolls with this online recipe.

If you love cinnamon rolls you have got to try the recipe, trust me! It is easy and pretty basic as far as ingredients go. Go forth and bake rolls, you will not be sorry.

Oh and don’t worry I wont be eating all 7 pans of rolls myself, that would be insane. I would slip in to a diabetic coma and Tater Tot would be bouncing off my uterus walls!

N is taking some pans to work and we are giving some to our neighbors to spread holiday cheer and all that jazz. Plus, I am keeping some for us to throw in to the oven on Christmas morning. Mmmm!

On Christmas Eve (today) we are going to be baking all sorts of cookies. Sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies and a few other fun ones are the goal. N is also working both today and on Christmas Day, he has to be in @ 2pm all week.

He does however have a 4 day weekend as a result, he’ll be enjoying his big present all 4 day I am sure!

I am pleased that I have zero wrapping to do tonight (got it all done in advance, yay!) but I still have N’s stocking to stuff and put out. When he gets off work @ 11pm we’ll have hot coco and cookies, you know try to spend some quality time together. I also want to get to bed at a reasonable time so we can wake up and enjoy Christmas Morning before he has to push off to work that afternoon.

What is your Christmas Eve looking like? Are you like my mom with a closet full of shopping bags that all need to be wrapped on Christmas Eve? What is your Christmas Eve tradition?

  • I am always a last minute shopper/wrapper but this year with all the snow warnings, I was done early. I am glad I pulled that off, as some of our roads here are at a standstill, it snowed again overnight, and is still snowing now!
    Christmas eve traditions are two movies, A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim (black and white version) and It’s a Wonderful Life, also the black and white version.

  • My wrapping is all done.. I have spent too many yrs up until 4 or 5 am doing it and am just too old for that now 🙂

    Our Christmas eve is evolving from one tradition of a big dinner and present opening after Santa comes in the morning – to something diff because the boys are getting older. This yr we will be waiting for a daughter and grandson to get here sometime after dinner. We will open one gift tonight and then the rest tomorrow. Santa used to fill the stockings after the kids went to bed… but this yr each of us is going to contribute something to the socks… on the sly when others are not paying attention. It used to work when the girls got too old for Santa… we shall see how it works with this younger set of kids.

  • Wow Mama!!! You’re quite the Betty Crocker!
    I wrapped all my presents today while the boys were down for a nap, and I just stuffed all the stockings!
    My new slogan is “Screw Santa… It’s Mrs. Clause that does all the work!”
    I wish I was there with you to eat some yummy rolls! I got some eggs, bacon, and fresh hash browns and some bagles for us to have breakfast tomorrow!
    I love you T, N and Tater!!!
    Marry Christmas!
    P.S. Days was pretty good today! I really do need to talk with your mom about that show! lol
