Christmas Family Traditions

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!


  1. My boys all wait upstairs (usually in our room with us) until everyone is awake then we go downstairs together and we open stockings first too. We try to have one person open at a time but sometimes there is a little overlap. Then we have a late breakfast with my husband's family and we take turns hosting brunch; this year is our year to host. We're trying to make homemade croissants.

    1. Our Christmas mornings sound super similar! Homemade croissants!! Yummy!

  2. How fun!! We do it very similar to you...we have to stay in our rooms until 6, and then we can come down!! We open our “santa”gift and stocking stuffers first, and then my grandparents come over!! My mom always makes breakfast casserole, and we eat it while all of my family opens their gifts!! Later that day, we’ll have a big Christmas lunch!!

  3. so much fun!! we do pretty much the same thing as you; matching christmas pajamas, the night before christmas!! but me and evie both sleep in our parents room and they sleep in ours! then my entire family gets together for lunch! we have a blast!

  4. Love reading all the traditions your family has, Abby! Traditions are something I LOVE SO much!! It's always fun to see what others do in their homes. Happy Wednesday!

  5. I love all these beautiful traditions you have, Abby! It's definitely come full circle these days with my own children, but that excitement Christmas morning is second to none! Have the best holiday!

    1. Thank you! Yes, there is nothing like Christmas morning! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Hey friends!! Happy Tuesday! Can we just take a step back for a moment and recognize that it is already January the 19th!!?? It has been 19 days into this New Year, and I feel like it all happened in the blink of an eye. It went by so fast. Today is the third Tuesday of the month, so that means it's time for . . .

Friday morning I woke up at 5:04 AM, my alarm did not go off, but luckily I roused close to my normal time! Then I checked my sleep app to see how much sleep I got.  After checking that, I laid in bed and read for 10 minutes. This is my favorite way to wake up and quietly prepare myself for the day! Then I got out of bed and went to the kitchen to make myself some breakfast! I made myself some hot tea, and because
