Kitchen Christmas

here are some better pictures of our kitchen Christmas----they uploaded in reverse order...Christmas morning--- it is a hit!! they made us a delightful breakfast ;-)
anna has been quite the little mama -- strolling her babies (and in this case- a dvd). she is wearing her the new dress up skirt i made {this is what happens when crinoline is on sale ;-}
a top view-- notice the fried egg... felt food was fun to make on car ride during holiday travel. i think the eggs turned out the best...

here she is in her humble beginnings ... we had so much fun in the basement making it... note: santa's helpers had plenty of milk and cookies to fuel the work ;-)

broccoli slaw

have i told y'all about the broccoli slaw recipe from smitten kitchen?
we clogged our drain with broccoli around this time last year (i botched the recipe and put it all down the disposal... then the pipe busted and flooded our basement... and andrew had to pull up all the flooring.... single-handedly while watching the kids b/c i was deathly ill) and so i have been warned from making it again... but finally a year later i have made another batch--- yum yum yum!
