Every year the girls and I do a Christmas Grab Bag! We do a $40 dirty Santa Grab Bag and we ALSO do a $10 dirty Santa Gag Gift! The gag gift is always the most fun. The gifts for that are hilarious! Some are so bad and naughty I feel weird listing them on my blog -lol- just this alone would put all 8 of us on Santas Bad List!!!!
We decided to make this years grab bag festivity into a brunch on Sunday! December is so crazy and it was hard to find a day all of us could definitely get together therefore this worked out perfectly and really who doesnt love everything that comes with doing a brunch!?
4 of us brought OJ, the other 4 brought the champagne! My sister made a Peach Orange Juice which was extra amazing. She just halved a bottle of OJ and filled it back up with Peach Nector.
^Do you see those cups?!^
You have no idea how wonderful these truly were. My friend Maria made them. I searched Pinterest and found the recipe:
Looks like its from Martha Stewart which I dont doubt for a second! At first I thought the egg was gonna be all runny and I’m not into that, but when I bit into it and it was more of a hard boiled egg/eggs-that-are-in-a-Mcdonalds-Breakfast-Sandwich kind of consistency… I was in love!!! And bacon…. don’t even get me started!
So simple too! Line greased muffin tins with smashed down bread… lay a half cooked piece of bacon in there, crack an egg over the bacon, pop into oven for 20-25 minutes. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
Becca made this delicious French Toast with a rich buttery maple syrup sauce on the bottom!
Anne made pancakes. I thought this was the extent of them until…
She added a raspberry to each one! Then it really was game on for these babies!!
My sister made some bacon, green onion, ranch, and cheese crescent roll ups!
And I made s’mores dip, you can find that on my blog post with the recipe here: http://glitterbatterandothermatters.com/2013/12/10/smores-dip/
Some things I didnt get a picture of: Heathers hash brown casserole and Sam’s fruit dip!
But all in all I think it’s safe to say that we as a whole… DO NOT mess around when it comes to get togethers and food. We always out do ourselves 😉
The kiddos opened their gifts first!
Ella snapping pictures of Cameron!
Ummmmm lets talk about these Michael Kors flats! So cute, I’d wear them!!
Becca got all of us Christmas socks… which were a huge hit because even at 24 and 25 years old we all enjoy the idea of having matching things and all wearing the same stuff -lol-
I didn’t get pictures of our grab bag but items included:
All kinds of jewerly, scarves, socks, candles, hair stuff, nighties, scrapbook supplies (who do you think gifted that?! Me of course haha always encouraging the creativity! I just thought it was so neat… Michaels sold these packages for scrapbooking that included a 12×12 scrapbook, stickers, paper etc!). So much good stuff! Now the gag gifts… I will leave those to your imagination!!
