Hey there friends!! Happy, happy Wednesday!! There are two days until Christmas!! I can’t believe it! Today I am sharing a couple of my family’s Christmas traditions.
For today’s post, I am linking up with Lindsay for Wednesday Chat, and Penny for Wonderful Wednesday!
O N E :
During the Iron Bowl weekend, we get a tree and decorate it! Sometimes we will get a tree a little earlier than that weekend, just so it can be prepared, then we decorate it while watching the game! It is so much fun to do, and it's so funny when we come across an Auburn ornament. We have quite a few Auburn beating Bama ornaments! This is the only picture I have of me by our Christmas tree!
T W O :
Each Christmas, we will make some sort of baked goodies for our neighbors, family, and friends. Sometimes we will make an assortment of cookies, one year we made these really yummy cream cheese brownies, cheerio grabbers, and this year coffee cakes and banana breads! We love giving out gifts like these because we just love making them!
T H R E E :
On Christmas Eve we will normally have a fancy dinner with our family. Most of our family lives in Auburn, so we go up there and have an early Christmas dinner. We have such a fun, fun time seeing each other and eating super yummy food!!
F O U R :
During the night before Christmas (not the poem), Santa comes and brings Clara and I new Christmas pajamas! This is such a fun tradition, and we love getting to get new pajamas! I can't wait to see what the Christmas jammies I am getting this year look like!
F I V E :
We only open Christmas presents on Christmas morning. My family has never really opened one present on Christmas Eve, and we love to open everything in the morning!
S I X :
On Christmas morning, Clara and I have to wait in our rooms to go out into the living room. Around 6 or 7 Mom and Dad will come and check if we are awake (we always are), and then we wait a little while until all of the presents are arranged, and then Clara and I walk out to see everything! This is so much fun! Clara and I are always up around 5:30 on Christmas morning, so we normally hang out and guess what might be under the tree! This was Clara and I walking out of our hallway with our new Christmas pajamas!
S E V E N :
Once Clara and I have gone into the living room, we always open our stockings first!! I love all of the stocking stuffers Clara and I get!
E I G H T :
We always open our gifts one at a time. I love opening each gift one at a time, because then we get to enjoy seeing the other person unwrapping their gift! I just can't wait for everyone to open their gifts!
N I N E :
After we have opened all of our presents, we will have a late breakfast! One of our favorite breakfasts to make on Christmas morning is THIS easy three ingredient casserole! So yummy!
Well, friends, that is all that I have for you today! I can't believe that Christmas is just two sleeps away! I hope you all have a wonderful day! See you back here tomorrow!
