Three Days Until Christmas!
First of all, I know I’ve been absent a lot this month and I’m really sorry about the lack of comments and posts I have missed! It’s just been a crazy month, after the new year I will be up and running regularly though :).
With that being said….
Is everybody ready for Christmas!?
I’m almost done, I just have a few errands to run today and tomorrow and then It’s time to relax and enjoy family time this weekend.
I adore Christmas traditions and I love seeing what everyone does for the holiday’s. It mostly gets me so excited for when I have my own kids, I have about a million traditions I want to do when I start a family (sorry future babies lol). That’s what it’s all about though, just being with family and finding those moments that make the best memories.
These are my Top Five Christmas Traditions that are my favorite.
Opening one present on Christmas Eve
Does anyone else do this? I remember my parents always letting us pick out one small gift under the tree to open on Christmas Eve and I would love it. This is a tradition I am going to keep up when I have my own family.
Every Christmas I get a new pair of pajama’s. I don’t know about all of you but I am a comfy junkie! I love sweatpants and big comfy sweaters and especially pjs! On the weekends or my days off if I don’t have to change out of comfy clothes then I won’t.
Christmas Cookie Decorating
My favorite! I love Christmas cookies and decorating them with family has always been my favorite. Today I am actually heading over to my Aunt’s house and my nieces, my Aunt and I are going to make some Christmas cookies :).
There’s nothing more beautiful then driving around looking at Christmas lights. There’s this neighborhood over by my house that does this HUGE Christmas light display and it’s breathtaking. Well, my parents, my boyfriend and I made a new tradition to check it out every Christmas Eve after my families party.
Since AJ and I got our own place, the new Christmas morning has been at our house! AJ, Izzy and I open up our presents then I start making breakfast and our parents come over to do presents. I love it, and it’s so much more relaxing then having to run to everyone’s house.
This year I’m making a breakfast casserole. It’s diced hashbrowns, eggs, sausage, and lots and lots of cheese, oh and I’m adding onions! Then a side of bacon and whatever else to drink :). YUM!
Now you know my favorite Christmas Traditions. Here are five traditions I must start when I have a family of my own!
25 Books Of Christmas
I love this idea! Opening up a book every night starting on December 1st. Such a fun and good way to get everyone to enjoy reading as much as we do :).
Elf On The Shelf
I can’t take all the cute ideas I have seen this year for Elf On The Shelf! So many of my friends who have kids are getting so creative with it. I know a lot of people who think it’s annoying but I think it’s fun for the kids.
Letter’s To Santa
Letter’s to Santa is so important, I remember writing them all the time when I was younger. I think I realized Santa wasn’t real though when I started to notice the handwriting on the letters back to me looked a lot like my moms! lol I’ll have to do super manly writing when it’s my turn.
Matching Pajama Pictures
This idea is too stinking cute! I love it, and I think holiday pictures are so fun anyway so why not throw in some matching pajama’s by the Christmas tree!?
You all know how I love my crafts so it’s only expected that when I have my own kids, we will be picking out special days to Christmas craft like crazy! They also make super cute gifts for the grandparents or other family members too from the kids which I know I love getting homemade crafts form my nieces.
