In just a few short weeks we will be celebrating Christmas! This year is extra special because it’s Henry’s FIRST CHRISTMAS! I never really realized before becoming a Mom all the thought that went into every holiday or event when you have a little one. You want to make sure they experience ALL THE THINGS. You want to show them all the wonder of the season in such a short amount of time.

He’s only 9 months, but I feel like we already need to start creating our own traditions and showing him how amazing these times with family can be. It’s overwhelming and amazing at the same time, seeing the world through his little blue eyes.

This Christmas, we plan to eat a themed breakfast together as a family before we dig into presents, just like we always did with my family growing up. I want it to be as fun as it is delicious, so we plan to make these easy Sausage “Cookies” as a way to inject a little more cheer into something otherwise normal. Aren’t they fun??platter of breakfast sausage cut into Christmas cookie shapes

How to Make Sausage “Cookies”

I decorated mine with just a dab of sour cream and some peppers and chives but you could use a little piece of bacon as a snowman’s scarf, or some cheese as tree ornaments. When Henry is a little older I know he will have so much fun getting creative with me in the kitchen.
