Christmas Traditions


*The Christmas Card cover was designed by Leora Sanford at Little Dreamer Designs.

The best part about Christmas is the traditions that are associated with it. This is our 4th Christmas together and it has been fun taking our favorite traditions from each of our families and adding our own. I have a little list of my favorites:

*Christmas Eve dinner has evolved to be Chinese food of some kind, because that is something we both absolutely love.

*Open one gift on Christmas Eve, usually of pajama-nature.

*Christmas Day breakfast is Eggs Benedict, we've made together. It is a special treat we save mostly for Christmas morning.

*We sleep in (even Logan cooperated this year! He woke up at 7:00 , but went back to sleep until 9:00:) and open presents later in the morning, mostly because Josh and I aren't morning people.

*We open gifts one at a time, but we give each gift, with a kiss, to the person we got them for. Usually some kind of an explanation of why we chose that gift accompanies.

We hope you had a Merry Christmas and your holiday was filled with traditions and family rituals you look forward to. As our family grows and changes we love to hear ideas of fun family traditions, each year we add new ones.

He is such a cute kid! I always love it when you post slide shows. I also love all your Christmas traditions. That's one of the best things about starting your own family, I think.
