North Pole Breakfast 2014...Grinch Edition!

Ending the year sharing our most favorite Christmas tradition...our North Pole Breakfast!
We held it the first week in December but computer and server glitches kept me from posting right away and then, well, life. You know how December goes. Better late than never!
This year with Grace performing in Grinched, we were all about the mean green guy, so I rolled with it. Grinch pjs, Grinch stuffed animals, Grinched North Pole Breakfast...
We started out reading - what else - How the Grinch stole Christmas!
I love opening books and finding sweet sentiments! This one was from my dear friend Segi when Grace was still in my belly!
And then I made the littles close their eyes and tip-toe into the dining room...
And this. This right here is what it's all about! These sweet smiles and eyes full of wonder...
Our elves may not do a lot of fancy tricks while they're here, but they sure know how to throw a fun breakfast!!
Super Belly & Cookie Rooftop always bring some fun goodies for the littles - movies, ornaments and cotton candy this year - but the most important thing they bring every year is a sweet letter reminding Grace and Hudson what Christmas is all about...
And then it was time for the feast!
As you can see the littles wasted no time going for their favorites!!  Grapes and strawberries for the little pumpkin...
And S U G A R for Hudson!!

That silly old Grinch messed with our North Pole treats this year!!

Not even the Grinch repellant (maple syrup) could keep him away!

We had Grinch Pills (peppermint Milano cookie halves)...
Double Your Heart Paddles (red velvet cake ball halves)...
Who Pudding...
Green pancakes + Grinch hats...
Even our milk went green!
That Grinch even put his signature color in our C H E E S E!!
About the only thing he didn't mess with was the Snow-Covered Donuts...the North Pole's signature food. Whew!
But the littles didn't mind. They were in heaven! Sugar heaven that is!
Sugar high and silly shananigans topped off our morning!
And that's a wrap!

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” 
~ Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
Indeed it does!
Thanks for visiting our little corner of blogland this year! I wish you God's blessings of love, peace and joy in the New Year. May you find big and little reasons to celebrate this beautiful gift called LIFE!

I just love the memories you are making with your little ones...this is the stuff they will remember. I too try to make as many memories with my kiddos as possible...we do not have them for long so I try to enjoy it all!
The grinch quote is one of my favorite quotes. I have it framed ...
My blog seemed to fall behind this month as well.
Happy New Year!

I look forward to this post each year! It looks like so much fun! That is such a great thing you do for them! Those pajamas are so adorable! I love vintage Christmas & you have two things there that either are vintage or made to look vintage. That plate with the santa faces & the truck with the snowman & peppermint candies load in back. I love those two! They caught my eye right away! Oh, that one pixie elf looks like one of mine from when I was a kid. I still have him! I'm 52 so it's pretty old. I, however, am not old. Just to clarify!!! :0) Great job as always!

I always look forward to your North Pole breakfast post. I love this tradition!! I adore all of your decorations...could I just start sending you money and anytime you buy something, pick up one for me!! Seriously you have an amazing eye for stuff and every little detail is perfect!! One question, where do you find those sticker letters you use on the littles elf letters? I've been searching for some those size but can't find them. Thank you for sharing with us. Happy New Year to you & your sweet family!!

So you have inspired me to do a North Pole breakfast for the past few years. Ours was actually an evening tea this year. I'm cracking up because I got my girls that exact cotton candy and the same Santa felt ornament. Too funny! Thanks for the inspiration!
