Christmas Traditions

This week I am participating in Kelly's bloghop Show us your Christmas Traditions.

”Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner”

Shawn and I have been married for almost 9 years. We began our own traditions for Christmas when we married, but since we had our son Gavin, we have added even more traditions.

#1- We always buy each other and our son an ornament each year that
represents something special that happened that year.

#2- We always decorate the tree the week of Thanksgiving.
(see pictures below of the tree decorating this year)

#3- Making Christmas cookies

#4- Leaving milk and cookies for Santa and food for the reindeer outside
(reindeer food is made of oats and glitter so they can see it!)

#5- We always go with my family to look at Christmas lights
and to go out to eat. (This is a tradition I have done every year
since I was a child)

#6- On Christmas Eve night we always open one gift each
(new pajamas for us to wear for Christmas morning)

We have many more traditions that we have started these are just a few.

  1. We do a lot of the same ones as well. I love getting everyone an ornament. I still have to do that!
