it’s a tradition…

Last Saturday’s Cosmo Cricket post was a challenge to scrapbook a holiday tradition.  We have several fun family holiday traditions, but one of my favorites is our "eggless eggnog."


I distinctly remember the first time my Grandma Nye made eggnog for us when I was a little girl.  I remember loving the flavor, but NOT the texture that was added by the egg.


We make our own version of that yummy drink simply by adding vanilla, sugar, and a bit of nutmeg to a blender full of milk and whip it up until it's nice and frothy.


The kids love it too - it's something we all look forward to doing together on Christmas Eve - right after they open their Christmas PJ's, but before we put out Santa's fudge. :O)
