Monday morning, the start of Christmas vacation and we kicked it off in style!  With everyone most everyone in their jammies, cups of coffee in hand and Christmas trees lit, we moved casually into the day. I made a little something special that was so easy that I actually baked 2 of these beauties. This recipes comes together in no time thanks to store bought crescent rolls. I whipped up the cream cheese with a little sugar and brightened it up with some lemon zest. This sweet dish was a wonderful addition to our morning breakfast that included deviled eggs and bacon.  It was a no stress morning filled with great talks, laughter and good food.  I am counting my blessings on this Monday morning
