Our Christmas Eve is spent with Mema and Pa. We will go to Christmas Eve candlelight service which is probably my most favorite thing, open presents and spend the day with each other celebrating our Lord and Savior. When we get home there is still one more present to open before bed, that one gift that we all know is going to be new pajamas. Of course you can't forget to put out Santa's favorite cookies and chocolate milk and carrots for the reindeer.
I love to make a big breakfast on Christmas morning. My family calls it "country fried breakfast". Everyone can have whatever they want for breakfast that morning. Hopefully when we move closer to the family, they can come over to enjoy breakfast with us.
What are some of your traditions?

Anyone else have all the mixed emotions that school breaks bring?
It would always turn out that I would "have" to stay home half the time and would feel guilty for the childcare I found for the other half. I never did enjoy any of this so called vacation time.
Now, I not only get to stay home but I plan to enjoy it 100%! Life is so much better when you have someone else invested in you. I blame all of this excitement on my husband! For taking care of me and our family and giving me the opportunity to actually enjoy it all.

Her mom also made a scarf which I didn't get a picture of but is so pretty as well!
This was a wonderful experience for me and I am so glad I participated! Thank you Jennifer for all these gifts! I will treasure them forever and every year when I put the ornaments on the tree, I will remember you and your generosity to me and my family.
I mean come on, not just anyone would include something special for my banshees too!
