As many folks know I am NOT a morning person. Whenever we have to be somewhere early in the morning, I have to pack and organize everything the night before. I've always fixed the kids breakfast, but never really put my heart into it~ since I am barely functioning at that time! Since we aren't running out the door to get to co-op now on Monday mornings, I make a formal breakfast for our family. I've made some of the most elaborate breakfast dishes ever, and we take our time to enjoy every morsel and read the Bible together. We read the Bible everyday but this Bible time is different as sometimes our breakfasts will last for a few hours. It's a sweet way to begin our week and focus on what's most important to us~ our faith in Christ, and our precious family.
I borrowed this new recipe off of another blog that I love to follow~ Clementines with a special sweet sauce. We also had homemade hot cocoa with cinnamon, and of course our morning tea. It seemed funny to have hot cocoa with tea, but the girls insisted on having them both.
My lovely little ladies.
Chad had to drive into Orange County so he missed our special time, but he made up for it by writing all of us girlies a special note. The flowers are from him too.

Here is another breakfast we had the following week. Sweet Taylor was a guest. This time we had AMAZING French muffins. I stole the recipe from the Pioneer Woman cookbook~ Thanks Carri! They are absolutely melt- in -your -mouth scrumptious!!!
